Smith Meadows is a family operated farm in Berryville, VA (at the northern part of the Shenandoah Valley). We raise free-range beef, pork veal, lamb, chicken, turkey and eggs. Smith Meadows Kitchen is our on farm commercial kitchen where we produce fresh pasta and other delicious products from our meats, eggs and other sustainably raised ingredients from local farms. We sell our meats, eggs, and kitchen products at 7 farmers markets in the Washington DC area: Arlington Courthouse, Del Ray, Fall Church, Chevy Chase, Dupont Circle, Takoma Park, and Columbia Pike.
We offer 2 year-long farm apprenticeships and 1 year-long kitchen apprenticeship, where we teach valuable skills in running your own sustainable food business or farm. The apprenticeships compensation include housing and a stipend.
Each year in May we host an event called Farm Day, where you can come for a complete tour of the entire farm, a catered lunch, cooking demonstrations in the commercial kitchen, and a small petting zoo. If you are not available in May, we welcome you to visit the farm. Although there are no official tours outside of Farm Day in May, you are welcome to take a walk on the farm or shop in our store.
Beginning in September 2010, we will begin offering cooking classes in the commercial kitchen. The first class on "How to Cook a Whole Free-Range Chicken" is scheduled for September 25 from 9-1, and we will begin registering for the that class in August 2010. Please contact us via our website for more information: www.smithmeadows.com
