Copper Cricket Farm   --   Machipongo

Biologically Managed, Sustainably Grown

End of Solitude Road at Wilsonia Neck Road

3:30 - 6:00 PM

The Copper Cricket Farm is a small diverse farm located in Machipongo, VA, offering a subscription service for vegetables from April until December each year. All vegetables are grown without pesticides, herbicides or chemical fertilizers. We care for our natural environment by letting the soil, plant and animal biology naturally care for our farm. We use minimal petrochemical inputs by farming intensively using hand labor for all planting and harvesting. Our vegetables are delivered the same day they are picked, ripe and fresh from the vine!

Our customers receive a crate of vegetables weekly. The crate contains an array of vegetables currently in season each week. Our crates contain only vegetables grown on our farm. Spring crates feature cool weather crops such as lettuces and greens including chards and kale, carrots, cabbages, celery, onions, peas, broccoli, and herbs. As the season progresses summer vegetables such as tomatoes, cucumbers, summer squashes, peppers, eggplant, potatoes, snap beans, onions, and others fill the crates. As the days grow shorter and the soil cools, fall crates bring back cooler weather vegetables including greens and lettuces, carrots and green onions again, snap beans, as well as winter squashes and summer crops that produce well into the fall as Mother Nature permits. Vegetable crates are delivered weekly directly to our customers’ homes or offices, if within our range, or alternatively to a local central drop off point. We offer 3 crate sizes for weekly delivery. The large size is designed to feed 4 people. It is also appropriate for 2 people who like to eat a lot of vegetables or freeze and preserve them for the winter season. The large size is available for $30 per week. The medium size is designed for 2 people and is offered for $20 per week. The small size is new this year, designed for a single person living alone who cannot consume as much food. It is available for $15. All prices include Virginia State sales tax of 2.5% as well as delivery. The Copper Cricket Farm provides flexible payment options designed to help our customers manage their food budgets.

Perennial Roots Farm   --   Onancock

Biodynamic Farm & Garden

The farm store is open from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m., and closed on Sundays. Call a half-hour before you arrive so that someone can meet you at the farm store. On Saturdays, the owners are at the Onancock farmers market in the center of town from 8 a.m. to noon. On Tuesdays, they’re at the Cape Charles farmers market from 4 to 7 p.m.

Heading north, turn right on Front Street (U.S. 13 Business) toward the town of Accomac, then right on Route 605, then left on Decormis Street, down the dirt road and park in front of the old white house on the left.

That’s the farm store, where you’ll find duck and chicken eggs, cuts of heirloom, pastured pork, bacon and sage sausage, heirloom lettuce mix and, starting in early July, assorted heirloom berries, produce and herbs, including varieties of heirloom tomatoes and cukes rarely grown in the region, and lamb in the fall. Or call ahead and order fresh rabbit. Owners Stewart Lundy and Natalie McGill practice a method of ultra-sustainable farming. It might not look pretty, but they farm with utmost respect for the Earth, with no chemicals, GMO feed or harmful anything.

Perennial Roots Farm is both a business and a home. We began as a homestead, concerned foremost with reducing waste and providing enough food for our own needs. Out of our surplus, we began to find outlets in local markets. A garden grew up into a farm.

Our goals and practices are a synthesis of biodynamic rhythms and principles of permanent agriculture. We’ve learned that the maximum amount of life combined with a maximum diversity of life is health. We use no synthetic chemicals because the one-sided attack of any part of an ecosystem makes that entire ecosystem unbalanced.

We are committed not merely to nominal “sustainable” practices, but to regenerative practices that increase fertility with every season. We use intensive multi-species rotational grazing which keeps our animals healthier and nurtures our soil. We use cover crops to enliven the soil, build carbon, and provide habitat for beneficial insects. We compost as much as we can.

In keeping with this impulse towards long-term fertility, we raise heritage animals on our farm specifically selected for their good foraging traits. Our goal is to feed as little grain as possible to all our animals and continue to develop a perennial grass-based diet. Even the weeds are all an integral part of this process of healing the Earth.

We grow exclusively non-GMO open pollinated heirloom plants. We grow varieties of tomatoes, lettuce, greens, fruit trees, berries, and more. We raise heritage breed pigs, sheep, geese, ducks, chickens, rabbits, and turkeys. Most of our vegetables and animals that we raise are listed on the Slow Food Ark of Taste for their unique history and superior flavor. American Mulefoot hogs, Beaver Dam peppers, Aunt Molly’s Ground Cherries and the American Silver Fox Rabbit are just a few of our Slow Food Ark of Taste products. Almost all of our animal breeds are listed on the Livestock Conservancy. We are an agri-artisan on the Virginia Eastern Shore Artisan Trail. We are a certified Bee Friendly Farm.
