Certified Organic, Virginia Green Travel Certified, Good Agricultural Practices Certified…Riverstone Organic Farm is certifiably amazing! A crew of experienced farmers cultivate 14 acres of vegetables and fruits, including greenhouse and high tunnel spaces. In addition to wholesale production for Local Food Hub and other distributor partners in North Carolina and Virginia, Riverstone sells at various farmers markets and hosts its own on-site farm store. Visitors to the farm can choose from produce, meat, herbs, and flowers, and enjoy a walk, a picnic, or a farm tour. If you’re ever in Floyd County, consider this a must-see.
At 2,000+ feet in altitude, Riverstone has a completely different microclimate than Charlottesville and other points in the east. Growers near Richmond may be experiencing tomato-popping rain or hail storms while Riverstone’s heirlooms come in smelling like sunshine! Their later spring and cooler summer provides us with a great partner in stretching the season of each item we carry, so that romaine lettuce might stretch through August and fall carrots might stretch until Thanksgiving.
