Located near the James River in historical southern Albemarle County, Virginia, Best of What's Around certified organic farm has been providing its CSA members with alternative food choices since 2003.

Originating as six separate but contiguous farms, the property was purchased by Dave Matthews and his wife Ashley Harper in 2002.

The name of the farm, taken from a Dave Matthews Band song, emphasizes the focus and intention of the farm: growing and providing the very best of everything around, keeping to high standards of integrity, sustainability, and quality. The farm has maintained organic certification for five years with Oregon Tilth, Inc.

The farm's field production consists of forty acres under cultivation, growing over 50 different crops and over 80 varieties—everything from snow peas to pumpkins—as well as flowers and a wide range of culinary and medicinal herbs. Our philosophy of growing is to focus on achieving an overall balance, sustainably and naturally, by utilizing companion planting, beneficial strips, compost teas, and worm castings. The five-acre apple orchard, planted in 2004, has nearly 800 trees, comprising 40 different old heirloom varieties.
