Phone: (434) 277-9304 Appalachia Star Farm seeks to produce fresh, well-grown vegetables and herbs that are free of chemical pesticides and synthetic fertilizers.
They employ growing methods intended to build soil fertility, lively ecosystems, and healthy food. Their practices include crop rotation and diversity, cover crops and row cover. They add composted manures, minerals and mulch to the soil to provide the necessary nutrients for plant growth and encourage biological activity. They believe these methods promote a sustainable system and create produce of superior taste and quality.
Located in Nelson County, Virginia, they offer their produce through a vegetable subscription and at local farmer's markets.
