After scouring the Charlottesville City Market for the highest quality, most sustainably grown produce we can find, I’ve built relationships with the following farms to source the freshest vegetables, herbs, and eggs. Not all of them are certified organic, but as a former organic farm forewoman myself, I feel comfortable with their practices and am sharing links to their web sites below in case you want to contact them directly about their growing methods. Though often romanticized, farming is tiring, low pay work. Please support these and other farmers in central Virginia whenever you can!
Whisper Hill Farm (Certified Organic)– lacinato kale, butternut & hubbard squash
Modesto Farm & Greenhouse — eggs from pastured hens
Brightwood Vineyard and Farm (Certified Organic) — lacinato kale and spinach
