Even though the Solstice is a few weeks off, it's definitely summer at Goose Creek Gardens. A stretch of very hot, sunny days put a quick end to salad and cooking greens, and the garlic may be ready to harvest before July! We just dug our first crop of potatoes, and we're eager to get other items in the soil if the rain would hold up for a week or so.
Come visit! Our two farmstay guest rooms are available if you are passing through, need a quiet getaway, or want to help put up our repurposed hoop house! We are convenient to the Blue Ridge Parkway, Peaks of Otter, and James River water fun (contact Twin River Outfitters; www.canoevirginia.net). We are located within easy driving distance of world class hiking and mountain biking trails.
We are delighted to be collaborating again with Wingstem Farm and Bramble Hollow Farm to offer EDIBLE GOOSE CREEK Farm Fare Meal Kits and Bone Broth Kits. Pastured animals, log-grown shiitakes, and herbs, all from the Goose Creek Valley of Bedford County, VA, combine in lovely permutations to give you extraordinary nutritional value and flavor. Find us at the Grandin Village Farmers Market every other Saturday, 8 a.m. till noon (June 22, July 6 & 20, Aug 3, 17 & 31, Sept 14 & 28).
