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 bi-weekly (every other week) CSA -- 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.

It was so nice meeting you today at the Williamsburg Farmers Market in Merchants Square. It's obvious you take great pride in your work, as well you should! Thank you for the beautiful eggs, of course as soon as I left I realized I should have purchased more.... [more]
I've been going to the Fredericksburg Farmer's Market since we moved here about 7 years ago. Blenheim Organic Gardens is one of my favorites at the market -- I usually head there first to stock up Saturday mornings.... [more]
