The plant lists provided represent what we will try and grow during the entire 2023 growing season from March through November. Not all plants are available at one time due to seasonality and space constraints. In general, early spring vegetables and cool-weather herbs are available by the 3rd week of March, and the majority of herbs, flowers, and summer vegetables are ready by late April. From late April through mid-summer, we also bring in a variety of quality perennials, fruits, and shrubs that are not included in the lists but are grown here in VA.
Due to limited staff, we are unable to take/hold plant orders. Plants are sold on a first-come, first-serve basis. Thank you!
During March, April and May we will post a weekly plant availability list on our Facebook Page. “Like” us to keep updated on what plants are available at the Market on the Farm!
We are committed to supplying you with the best naturally and ecologically grown plants that are grown right here in our own greenhouses or on our farm. Our plants are grown without the use of herbicides, pesticides, or chemical fertilizers. All of the seeds and cuttings we use are GMO (genetically modified organism) free. All of our seed suppliers are members of the Safe Seed Initiative. We buy organic seed when it is available. Most of our plants are open pollinated (non-hybrid) varieties so you can save your seeds. We prefer heirloom vegetables, however, we do carry a few hybrids because they are such exceptional performers or have a high request from our customers. We try to clearly mark any plant that is a hybrid.
We prefer to be a small family farm. This allows us to give personal care and attention to you and your plants and not focus on big volume production. We are happy to take special orders. Place orders early and allow ample time for growing.
Come visit our farm and enjoy strolling through our gardens. Here you can enjoy many of the herbs, flowers, and vegetables that we grow. We have gardens that demonstrate crop rotation and show the no-till lasagna or layered garden method in a real life working setting.
For those of you with limited gardening space we have set up example gardens to show you how to maximize gardening in containers. Don’t be discouraged, anyone can grow a garden even if your small space feels like it is restricting you.
Wholesale retailers and landscapers please contact us for information/policies on setting up an account.
The Safe Seed Pledge
“Agriculture and seeds provide the basis upon which our lives depend. We must protect this foundation as a safe and genetically stable source for future generations. For the benefit of all farmers, gardeners and consumers who want an alternative,We pledge that we do not knowingly buy or sell genetically engineered seeds or plants.The mechanical transfer of genetic material outside of natural reproductive methods and between genera, families or kingdoms, poses great biological risks as well as economic, political, and cultural threats. We feel that genetically engineered varieties have been insufficiently tested prior to public release. More research and testing is necessary to further assess the potential risks of genetically engineered seeds. Further, we wish to support agricultural progress that leads to healthier soils, genetically diverse agricultural ecosystems and ultimately healthy people and communities.”
