DAIRY FARM Restoration

At its peak, Kemp Clemen's Tumbledown Dairy Farm in Nokesville, VA was over 230 acres; a vast majority has been sold for residential development. NFV is restoring the 9 acres around the original dairy barn, feed silos and family homestead to native forest.We will be guided by Kemp’s civic and agricultural spirit as we create a network of forests and trails available to the community for learning, recreation, and more.From Kemp Clemen's obituary:Kemp served in Europe as an Army Medic during WWII, returned home on the Queen Elizabeth II, and married his Beloved Ruby Jones. Kemp and Ruby loved the land that made up Tumbledown, on which they raised a family of four, and provided a home, care, and guidance for countless other family members and friends.As one of the founders of Prince William Veterans Farm Club, organizers and promoters of The Prince William County Fair, (1949), Kemp knew the importance of educating people about farming and agriculture. He welcomed numerous student classes to his farm and considered it an honor to be a part of teaching young men and women the value of local farming and its benefits around the world.The native forests and trails planted will be developed in Kemp's spirit and will be used for education, innovation, and community connection.
