Charis Eco-Farm

We are a small family farm offering direct market, farmer's market and restaraunt sales. Our 45 acres are grazed by our small but growing herd of cattle. We are in the process of developing a rotational graze for them. They will be followed by either layers or our unique newer breeds of broilers. We also offer pork on pasture as well as a limited amount of lamb, turkey, duck and occasional geese.

We desire to extend our garden to more variety for market, but presently is serving our family's needs. For anyone in the Augusta, Rockingham or Rockbridge counties interested in joining are new meat CSA, we are happy to offer this. Contact us for details.

Our eggs are sold fresh on the farm. We offer eggs from hens fed a conventional (GM Free) feed at $4.00/doz.

We also attempt to adhere to the practices advocated by the Weston A. Price Foundation (http://www.westonaprice.org).

Broilers/fryers are available fresh from May to Oct., or frozen all year round, for $4.00/lb. To sample our chicken or ground beef in a restaurant, try The Little Grill Collective (http://www.littlegrillcollective.com) in Harrisonburg, Virginia.

Beef pork and lamb (in limited quantity) are all available year round from our freezer. Indiviual cuts are USDA certified. Larger quanties are available also.

At Thanksgiving and Christmas we often have available fresh, range-fed broad breasted white, Bronze and even a limited number of heritage breed Bourbon Red Turkey. In addition, we sometimes have available a limited quantity of pasture raised duck & geese.

This year, I was away from Staunton, Virginia and instead went to Yorktown/Williamsburg to celebrate Thanksgiving with my Memere' and mom. I personally eat "primal" most of the time, but my Memere' is fairly strict to eating "Paleo" this means that we needed a pastured, grass fed turkey.... [more]
