Since 1988, Pig Pen Pottery has been in the lower level of Orchard House, one of the buildings on Hidden Springs Farm in Great Falls, Virginia. Hidden Springs Farm, in our family since 1939, is a pre-revolutionary farmstead, formerly known as “Montpelier of Fairfax”, and before that as “Mount Pleasant.”

Orchard House is a cinder block replica of a Jamestown House.  At one time this was the family gathering place for Hidden Springs Farm. There is a large fireplace which is kept burning most of the winter months.
