Winter Market at Farm to You.

Time to Move On

Farm To You turned six on November 9, 2015.  I've put in a lot of energy and effort over these years.  I've experienced wonderful highs and terrible lows.  I feel good about what Farm To You has accomplished toward building a local food economy in Rockbridge County.  There is much more work to be done, for sure.  I no longer love what I do, though, which tells me it's time to move on. I want to thank all of my customers but especially those that subscribed to the on-line shopping feature.  You have been my most loyal customers over the years, and I want to thank you for your faith in me and your support.  I will miss seeing you every week when you pick up your order or do your weekly shopping.

It is so vital that we buy food from people we know in our community.  That food nourishes not only us but the people who provide it, the people they employ, and our community as a whole.  I hope you will continue to shop for local food, and to give seasonal eating a try.  I've been doing it for years, and it is the most satisfying way of eating I know.

All the best to you, and happy eating!



For the past six years, Farm To You has been the region's only all local food grocer, open to everyone at our retail location across from Kenney's in Lexington.  Farm To You also made shopping for local food convenient with its on-line shopping service!  One of my customers who had been an on-line shopper since the store opened in 2009 approached me the other day and said:  "I don't know how to eat without you!"  That's all the confirmation I need that the venture I've invested so much time, energy and money in made a difference.

Shop Hours 

The shop is now closed.  If you would like to continue to source local meat, chicken and eggs, please send me an email at or call me at 540-460-2990.  Thanks!


What's available now? 

There is an abundance of greens in the shop now, and all Winter long.  Planet Earth baby greens -- arugula, kale, mustard, spinach, sorrel, tatsoi, watercress -- are available year round!  We've also got lettuce mix, cooking greens, and herbs this time of year, from right here in Rockbridge County, thanks to our local greenhouse and hoop house growers.  In addition to produce, we've got a freezer full of local meats (grass fed and finished beef; pork; lamb), cheeses, dairy, butter, eggs, krauts, pasta, vinegar, honey, granola, marinara sauce, pesto, and more.    So, if you're still supporting industrial agriculture, try shifting some of your food dollars toward supporting our community and our farmers by buying locally sourced foods.  


Conveniently located.

Why Local?

A community-based food supply benefits us all by re-connecting us with the source of our food, supplying us with fresh, nutritious food that has not traveled for thousands of miles, and bringing money into our economy. Did you know that if each household in Rockbridge County spent just $10 a week on locally produced food, it would translate into $5.5 million of revenue for our county?  For more resources, please visit Rockbridge Grown.

Looking for organic?

Farm To You strives to work with growers who do not use synthetic chemicals on their crops, and with producers who do not administer hormones or antibiotics to their animals.  Unless otherwise indicated in the product notes, the products meet these criteria.
