Environmental Stewardship

One of Historic Sotterley’s greatest assets is the beautiful natural environment we are dedicated to preserving.  


As part of its commitment to organic produce, the site is exemplary for its stormwater and nutrient management practices, reducing run-off into local waterways by over 90% and helping to preserve and protect the region’s natural habitats. By sustainable farming and preservation, we want to become a site where history meets health and where we can all grow for good, together. 


We have worked with local natural resource experts to keep our ecosystem healthy and accessible, including exploring ways to keep hay harvesting from interfering with nesting birds.
