A working farm since the 1700s, Bellair Farm has deep ties to the local community and a rich agricultural history. Today, the farm is owned by Cynthia Davis and managed by Michelle McKenzie and Nat Ratchen, seen below. Michelle, a Waynesboro, Virginia native has worked at Bellair for nine seasons. Nat is from Portland Oregon and has farmed for 7 years, 4 of them at Bellair.
Together, the team has created something of a farm-lover’s paradise – acres of lush green fruits and vegetables line the fields, a pick-your-own patch of flowers and herbs beckon families to linger on Saturday afternoons, an array of solar panels tucked behind the greenhouse captures energy to power surrounding buildings. In addition to selling to Local Food Hub, you can find their produce at Charlottesville area farmers’ markets and through their CSA program. Bellair Farm is USDA Certified Organic.
