About Us

Since its establishment in 2010, Arcadia's mission has been to improve the health of our community, support the viability of local farmers, and preserve the environment for future generations. 

Through our programs, we:


  • Work to address issues of food access and food justice

  • Raise awareness about healthy food and its sources

  • Establish innovative connections between local, sustainable farms and consumers

Arcadia Farm is located on the historic grounds of Woodlawn Estate in Alexandria, Virginia, thanks to a landmark partnership with the National Trust for Historic Preservation and the support and vision of Arcadia’s Founder and Chairman, Michael Babin.
