Founded in 1834, Oakley is one of the original farms of the Warm Springs Valley. At an elevation of 2,400 feet above sea level, the farm is situated on top of a karst layer of exposed limestone. Through this porous valley an abundance of springs flow, braiding together on Oakley and forming a branch of the Warm Springs Run. This headwater is a tributary of the Jackson River, which is one of the two primary contributors to the formation of the James River - Virginia’s second largest river.
In 2018 they purchased the farm from the von Schilling’s - Will’s grandparents - and set about continuing its preservation by means of agriculture. Orchards have existed on the farm throughout its nearly 200 year history. As the last remaining trees fade, we have dedicated 4 acres of new plantings to fuel their cider production. By planting 2,000 apple trees of 20 different varieties, they hope to find out what makes sense for their distinctive, high-elevation growing climate.
They believe that diversity is key to sustainable farming, and in 2019 they developed a dynamic partnership with Fireside Farm, incorporating their pastured poultry operation within the orchard. Their joint goal as a producing farm is to contribute to their rural economy through a closed looped system that benefits both the land and their community.
