Amicable farmers and certified organic produce. Eggs are not to be missed. Nor are free samples!

I love telling my friends when I make something fresh for dinner that it is all locally grown. Deb, my farmer, is wonderful! She is very knowledgeable and helpful. I've always found her to be very fair and generous in her business practices. I highly recommend ordering from the Byrd Farm if you are looking for a wonderful experience in buying locally.
Great selection and flexibility

We really love the Byrd Farm CSA particularly because of the flexibility it provides for us as consumers and the quality of the products we get. While I hate to admit it, there are many products which my husband just won't eat and this CSA allows me to avoid them while adding on other products when I pick up my weekly order. In addition, there are many weeks when it is just two of us eating from our CSA order while on other weeks there could be 4 of us. Again this CSA provides flexibility to us.
The process works quite differently from other CSA's with the need to create an order weekly from the available products. When picking up, you can add products from those which are available at the market.
We have mainly focused on purchasing produce and the quality of the produce is wonderful.
Great CSA experience

My first CSA year, and I got lucky. This farm is a huge part of the local community, the history of Virginia, and has hosted several archaelogical expeditions. This year I received a large variety of vegetables with my share, as well as additions from Cavanna Pasta, eggs and fresh whole chicken from David Fitzgerald, goat cheese. local honey, and various jams and pepper chutneys. The honey share missed a few weeks due to a bear incident that took out some hives. After that, the honey picked up. No shortage here. The season extended into a winter share. I've made my first kim chee and sauerkraut, due to the amount of cabbage I received in the winter share. The variety, and quality of the produce is excellent. I've converted a neighbor to fresh food, due to this csa. I may begin canning. I've picked up my sharewith the Rural Virginia CSA at several of the local markets, depending on my schedule. I learned the fresh market circuit, starting with this farm, and the Rural Virginia Market CSA.
