Building a resilient local food community.
We aspire to build better community and believe food security and access is a crucial ingredient. We partner with other farms who are also implementing ecologically enhancing practices to:
• Make local food easily accessible
• Build resilience in our local food system
• Encourage one another in building economically sustainable farm businesses
Great Day Gardens
Nutrient Rich Vegetables
Wood-Fired Sourdough Breads
Great Day Gardens is a 1 acre intensive market garden in Forest that produces nutrient rich vegetables using no synthetic chemicals and with an emphasis on soil health and no-till practices. Great Day Bakehouse uses traditional artisan techniques and all breads are baked by hand in a wood-fired oven. We use freshly milled flour made with organic and sustainably grown grains from Virginia and North Carolina and all our breads are made with a sourdough process that releases exceptional flavor and nutrition.

“By integrating the design techniques and protocols from the realms of permaculture design, holistic management, keyline design, and organic agriculture, our work increases the fertility, water holding capacity, drought-resistance, diversity, habitat and productivity of the landscapes we work with.”
