Sustainability and heritage farming
Our homestead is nestled on a small forest river, bisected by a stone-laden creek and is full of native wildlife. We have dedicated years repairing timbered and neglected land, reforesting more than half to someday become the majestic pine stands and hardwood havens they once were. We live and farm on the remaining 35 acres.
Cricket's Cove is a certified Biodynamic® farm, the first in Virginia to receive this status and also USDA-certified organic, We grow on a closed, clean system partnering with the bounty nature provides. Fruit trees and berry bushes are the foundation of all of the gardens with rainwater catchment ponds sprinkled throughout the farm. Here you’ll find vegetables, eggs, fruits, herbs, “Nectar,” (a local raw honey married with our delicious produce and herbs), a forge and more. Cricket’s Cove supplies local restaurants, select Farmers' Markets and Twigs & Berries, our organic grocery store on Main Street in Kenbridge, Virginia.
