Mark your calendars for the third annual

Harvest Party, Saturday October 18th starting at 5pm 

Jessie, one of our employees and the master of farm-to-table hot food in Blacksburg (aka The Fare Palate) is hosting her annual Harvest Party. This is a really fun evening on the farm with:

  • Music and appetizers starting at 5pm
  • Then a soup/salad/hot bread dinner with most of the ingredients coming from here and other area farms.
  • Followed by dessert/good coffee and a square dance led by Old Man Kelly and accompanied by Farm Use Only, our go-to band for old time dancing music.

No dance experience is necessary as Liam does a great job of walking beginners through the dances with amusing commentary to boot. Tickets for this event are $20 suggested donation available at the door plus $5/per for parking to encourage carpooling. If you have questions about the Harvest Party please contact Jessie at  stjohn.jessiclair @ gmail.com.

Pastured Freedom Ranger Chickens

fed non-GMO feed 

Now taking 2014 reservations for our fresh, local chicken fed non-GMO.

We are proud to be using a non-GMO chicken feed. Click here for more details on our chickens.

We are a small farm located on Glade Road, across from the Heritage Park in Blacksburg, Virginia. We specialize in annual vegetables, but also have several colonies of honeybees and an apple orchard with 15 varieties of apples. Additionally, we now raise pastured Freedom Ranger meat chickens. This is our fifth year at it so wish us luck!

We are fortunate to be in the energetic company of our amazing employees, Ben, Lisa, and Jessie. Along with working with us, they are also active in starting their own businesses. Be sure to check out Ben's pastured pork later this year and Jessie and Lisa's hot food stand, the Fare Palate, at the Blacksburg Farmers Market. Also, many thanks to all our volunteers and compadres that help us out here on Glade Road.

Our farming methods are based on building and maintaining soil health, biodiversity, and community involvement (read: fun). We do our best to serve as caretakers of the land by using organic matter-based mulches and cover crops. Although our intensive cultivation area only occupies about four acres, we also manage the remaining 44 acres of the property, part in rotational pasture for a local beef cattle farmer and part in a native-species forest and riparian area for a tributary of Tom’s Creek. Come by and introduce yourself- we'd love to meet you.
