Welcome to the Harvest Table Farm
The Harvest Table Farm is located about two and a half miles from the restaurant, nestled among the rolling meadows of the town so aptly named Meadowview. The farm sits on 3.5 acres of land where our farm managers, the Root family, reside.
The farm was developed as an addition to The Harvest Table Restaurant in 2010 to meet the specific needs of our dedicated farm-to-table operation. The Restaurant relies heavily on local farmers to provide the bulk of its produce and meats, and the Harvest Table Farm fills in the gaps, growing appx 40 types of vegetables. There are fruit trees, berry bushes, and perennial herbs tucked in around the farm, in addition to its annual produce.
On the farm, principles of Market Gardening, Permaculture, and Regenerative Agriculture are employed. The farm is Certified Naturally Grown, a certification that reaches beyond organic to include the health of its community, by working in harmony with nature and without relying on synthetic chemicals or GMOs. The Harvest Table Farm uses methods such as no-till, permanent raised beds, companion planting, crop rotation, cover cropping, composting, and mulching to ensure healthy soil and plants.
Harvest Table Farm offers tours on Tuesdays and Thursdays by appointment only. Our neighbor farm, The Harvest Table Farm Livestock Op, practices intense rotational grazing of animals to restore the health of the land. Tours are available to see Patrick Depp’s operation. Pricing for a tour of either farm is $25/ per person, and to coordinate a tour of both farms is $40/ person.
Harvest Table Farm produce can be found in a meal at the HTR, at the Saturday morning Abingdon Farmers Market, or in a $20, pre-ordered, Fresh Harvest Sack, that contains a salad mix, root vegetable, dark leafy green, seasonal vegetable, and herb.
