Local Farm Working With Prince Edward County School System

January 6, 2013

Crumptown Farm, managed by Brad and Lyndsay Constable, is a small family farm located in Buckingham County. Their land is 100% chemical free and their produce is raised from non-GMO, chemical free seeds in our own greenhouse. All of the seeds that they begin with are either untreated or Certified Organic. They are passionate about bringing our customers Certified Naturally Grown vegetables of the highest quality possible. Their methods include soil enrichment by encouraging microbial life through Biodynamic preparations, Japanese Natural Farming techniques, cover cropping and providing beneficial insect habitat. Taste, freshness and nutritionally rich produce grown using natural methods are their main goals.

Currently, Crumptown Farm is a vendor at the South of the James Farmers Market in Richmond, VA. That is also one of the drop-off locations for the CSA. It has been an exciting development this past season as the Prince Edward County School system has become a regular purchaser. They are actively encouraging healthier eating for their students and Crumptown Farm feels very fortunate to be a part of that initiative. Additional CSA drop-off locations include the Southside Virginia Family YMCA in Farmville and Nirvana greenhouse at Yogaville.
