KellyNestled in the hills of aptly named Hillsboro, Virginia lies the Stoneybrook Farm Market. To the general passerby, this farm market might look like all the rest — a clean, wooden structure overflowing with the bounty from the season’s harvest. But this is no ordinary farm market. For those who stop for a moment and venture inside, a peaceful agrarian wonderland awaits.

Stoneybrook Farm Market belongs to a community of farmers where every member has a corporate share in the operations. In 2010, Stoneybrook expanded the initial certified organic farm operation to include a café area, originally selling coffee drinks and homemade fresh baked goods and more recently offering a full, eclectic menu complete with smoothies, salads, sandwiches, organic fresh juices, and breakfast items such as poached eggs and fresh waffles. They use their own ingredients in the food as much as possible — even milling their own flour for their baked goods — and make every attempt to avoid products that contain GMOs for any necessary supplemental ingredients.  

The farm currently boasts kale, collards, broccoli, cauliflower, and carrots among their seasonal crops. During the full planting and growing year they also farm wheat, spelt, potatoes, onions, garlic, tomatoes, hay, lettuce, zucchini, squash, and raise pastured chickens and turkeys on their nearly 70 acres of property. The word “organic” can mean different things to different people, but to Stoneybrook Farm that means the use of cover crops and compost to fertilize their soils, as well as being completely pesticide-free. They sell their own vegetables in the market along with other locally grown produce and goods and a small, hand-curated selection of healthy food and drink, bath and body products, and their own handmade items such as cleaning products, essential oils, candles, and soap.
