Click for Directions: 12101 Orange Plank Rd, Locust Grove, VA 22508

Phone number: (540) 850-5009

Details: My family and I love going here several times a  year! We buy seasonal farm fresh produce. We pick our own Strawberries and Pumpkins. They offer a unique shopping experience where you can select quality natural, non-GMO produce while enjoying a friendly, family atmosphere. You can buy local products such as Milk from Trickling Springs Creamery out of Chambersburg Pa., Papa Weavers Pork and Beef from Orange Va., Orange Roasters Coffee from Orange Va., Roseda Beef from Md., Raw Honey from Spotsylvania, and Local Jams, Jellies, and Sauces. It is a great learning experience for kids and plenty of open area and a huge dirt mound for the kids to play.
