Welcome to the Harvest Table Farm
The Harvest Table Farm 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 about four acres of land surrounding a big white farm house, where our farm manager resides along with seasonal interns and WWOOFers. We offer educational tours for families, school groups, and anyone who may be interested in learning more about sustainable agriculture.
The farm was developed as an addition to The Harvest Table in 2010 to meet the specific needs of our dedicated farm-to-table operation. Here at the farm we grow a variety of produce selected to fill in the gaps. We still rely heavily on our local farmers to provide the bulk of our produce and meats, but we focus on storage potatoes and onions, as well as heritage and heirloom varieties of poultry and vegetables. We have fruit trees, berry bushes, and perennial herbs tucked in around the farm, in addition to our acre of annual produce.
On the farm, we employ principles of Agroecology, Permaculture, Intensive Agriculture, and Sustainability. While we are not certified organic, we follow many of the organic guidelines, and only use OMRI approved products on our crops. We use methods such as companion planting, crop rotation, cover cropping, and mulching to ensure healthy soil and plants.
While most stores and restaurants (including ours) remain closed, the sun, rain and springtime are still fully functional, and the Harvest Table farm is beginning to produce in abundance. The Roots currently have asparagus, fresh eggs, and a wide selection of greens for sale to the public. You’ll be able to meet the family and buy their produce through the Abingdon Farmers’ Market, reopening in new, dispersed locations for public safety. The market now has a new facebook page for direct sales. Or, if you’d like to support the Roots and sample their wares right away, you can contact them directly at firstname.lastname@example.org or via their new facebook page. Or just drop them a note and help us welcome them to our community.
