First priority for the vegetables we grow is always given to Our Farm Share Members Community Supported Agriculture allows a rewarding relationship between the growers and consumers of food. Community members financially invest in our farm and we grow food that is Naturally Grown, clean, fair, transparent, nutritious, and delicious. We plan for a diverse mix of vegetables to provide each Farm Share member with a bountiful selection of produce, May – November.

Owned and operated by Janet Aardema and Dan Gagnon, Broadfork is a small family farm in Chesterfield, VA providing the metro-Richmond area with naturally grown vegetables and herbs. We use traditional European methods of biointensive, raised bed production while maximizing soil and plant health for nutrition and sustainability. No synthetic/chemical fertilizer, pesticide, herbicide, or fungicide is ever used in any part of the process of growing your food. Everything we sell is grown by us, and we farm full-time, supporting ourselves and our four children through our farm business.
Growing practices at Locust Grove utilize only ecological methods: compost, cover crops, organic fertilizer, and minerals are used to feed the soil that feeds our plants. Raised beds are used to prevent soil-compaction, allowing for happier plant roots. We use organic potting soil, as well as amendments like fish and sea minerals. No chemical fertilizers, herbicides, fungicides, or pesticides are ever used on your food.
We also have a Bakery at our farm where we mix naturally leavened (wild-yeasted) dough and bake it into old-world style bread (made with 100% Certified Organic ingredients) in our wood-fired oven.
