Fall Farm Tour DaysOctober 3rd & 4th, 2015      1-6 pm
Guided Tour at 3 pm on both daysVisit our farm as part of the VABF & Ellwood Thompson’s Richmond Farm Tour weekend. Join in a guided walking tour, on both Saturday and Sunday at 3:00, of our abundant vegetable farm in Chesterfield county to learn how we manage the soil and plants for optimum health, nutritional content, and overall deliciousness! Also check out the new barn, featuring farm stand and CSA member pick up area. Please plan to join us, and spread the word! {Family friendly. Please – no pets.}

Directions: 9501 Deer Range Rd, Moseley VA 23120 – Take the Hull Street Road exit off of 288, West toward Amelia. Deer Range Road is directly off Hull Street (about 9 miles after the 288 exit) on the left after you pass Grange Hall Elementary. We are at the very end of the road (1.5 miles). When you get to the cul-de-sac where the pavement ends, you are looking at our house, barn, fields of vegetables, and greenhouses. Signs will direct you to parking. Tours begin at the front of the large barn, accessed by the middle driveway from the cul-de-sac. Call if you have any problems: 804-337-6540

 Tours describe our Certified Naturally Grown farming practices, including permanent raised beds on contour, high-tunnel cultivation (unheated greenhouses), greenhouse seedling propagation, farm-scale composting, bio-intensive planting, organic soil management, soil microbiology, soil mineralization for plant (and thus human) health, mulch for weed-suppression and other weed management practices, pest management, and macro- and micro-nutrient management.

*A Note about our Tours: We design and hold tours of our farm to allow our CSA members and customers to better know how and why we grow their food. We strive for high transparency in how we grow using only biological methods and our tours facilitate that process and inform the consumers about what is in the food we grow. If you are interested in a tour of our farm because you wish to start a farm similar to ours, we encourage you to invest in your learning by attending organic farming conferences, attending farm field days designed for growers, and hire professional consultation. We have benefited greatly from all three in the planning and implementation of our farm business.
