Hotels & Lodging Facilities
Virginia Green is the Commonwealth of Virginia’s campaign to promote environmentally-friendly practices in all aspects of Virginia’s tourism industry. Virginia Green has established "core activities" specific to each sector of tourism, and these practices are considered the required minimum for participation in the program. However, Virginia Green encourages its participants to reduce their environmental impacts in all aspects of their operations, and this profile provides a full list of all their “green” activities. These are the activities that guests / customers can expect to find when they visit this facility.
Cheesecake Farms B&B is a family-, dog- and horse-friendly, four-room rural farm B&B. We’re off the beaten path but close to everywhere you want to be. Cheesecake Farms is an agricultural-educational center for learning and refreshment that reflects the green environmental practices the innkeepers hold dear.
The 25 acres is home to an abundance of wildlife. There is a huge wetland complete with a beaver dam and a gentle stream – both important to the watershed.
Whenever possible, local and Virginia-grown food is served, much of it from our own gardens. Organic practices are used throughout Cheesecake Farms. Classes in sustainability and garden-to-table cooking are offered.
We’re proud of our efforts to keep Virginia green and wanted everyone to know the extra steps we take. Living green is easy once you get into the habit, and working with our natural environment instead of against it benefits all now and for the future.
