Hull Springs Farm, a 662-acre farm located in Westmoreland County, Virginia, is situated on the Northern Neck between Aimes Creek and Glebe Creek, both tributaries of the Potomac River, and just a short distance from the Chesapeake Bay.
The farm includes a large home that includes a classroom and lodging for participants. There are also two other lodgings on the property in key areas. The property has approximately 8,400 feet of tidal shoreline and offers views of Lower Machodoc Creek, wildlife, 160-acres in agricultural fields and more than 400 acres in forests. Given this, Hull Springs is a perfect location to do research and gather data on soil, water, and atmospheric conditions.
