BLENHEIM ORGANIC GARDENS is part of Blenheim Farm, a 400-acre farm long associated with the Washington family in Westmoreland County Virginia. The farm is 45 minutes east of Fredericksburg & about 1 mile from George Washington's Birthplace National Monument. We are USDA certified organic. Blenheim farm was established by George Washington's family in the 18th-century and is protected with conservation easements that preserve its historic character, open spaces, farmland and wildlife habitats in perpetuity.We are a family farm where sustainable agriculture, wildlife conservation and satisfied customers are our top priorities. We grow a large variety of crops on about 15 acres. We have 20 acres USDA certified organic by QCS. Selected acres of the 20 acres that is not in vegetable production, is planted in cover crop to increase field fertility or to attract beneficial insects. The vegetables we grow are chosen for their beauty and their flavor, of which includes lettuce mixes, elephant garlic, spring onions, tomatoes, basil, green beans, black eye peas, sweet potatoes and specialty eggplants, to name a few. We do succession planting to ensure a constant harvest. We have been part of the Williamsburg Farmers' Market, on Duke of Gloucester Street, since its inception in the summer of 2002 and attend the Fredericksburg's Hurkamp farmers' market. We have a CSA locally in Westmoreland County and deliver to convenient locations in King George, Fredericksburg and Falls Church. We have had the pleasure of selling our vegetables to FoodE, a farm to table restaurant, in Fredericksburg for the past four years and recently added quite a few new wholesale clients. Inquiries about day volunteering during the workweek is welcome. You'll go home with an armful of beautiful produce in return for your help! Please look for our Blenheim Organic Gardens facebook page to see awesome photos of the farm! We love to sell to restaurants that have a passion to teach others about fresh, organic local food, such as FOODE in downtown Fredericksburg. For 2015, we are shifting gears and offering bi-weekly (every other week) CSA deliveries which means less stress for the cook and more time to enjoy our 100 percent certified organic produce without the guilt of letting any of it go to waste. The Guilt Free CSA Program!
