Jolie Vue Farms...our story.
Following its acquisition in 1989, the goal of restoration of the farm to its original state of native grasses, clovers, and wildflowers was begun and has proceeded at nature's sure, steady pace. From the beginning, restoration was implemented without the intervention of artificial substances. While some particularly neglected sections of the farm were re-seeded in native vegetation, most of the new growth occurred from seed lying dormant in the soil. It has been truly wonderful to watch as the farm transformed itself from an over-grazed and neglected environment to a natural oasis which invited not only the return of native vegetation, but the wildlife that subsists on it as well.
There's nothing like the bluebonnet hills of Washington County and Jolie Vue Farms! But our symbiotic dance with nature is not finished. In fact, it has only begun.
