CA&J Farm – VA
CA & J Farm is an off the grid capable Solar and Medicinal Herb Farm. Along with solar panels, comfrey, echinacea, sweetgrass and many, many other plants, you’ll find bees, an active drum circle, classes, The Yellow Store, and so much more. The most important attributes of the entire farm are the owners, CA and Jean Howard, who have a love of the land, a love for people and a love for teaching. You can learn so much from them, and all the while feeling like a part of the family. Drop by some time, 5620 East River Rd, Foster, VA. Check out their class schedule on their web, and because they wear a lot of hats, take note of their flexible visiting hours. While visiting, be sure to ask about their amazing Hoop House. They buried their OLLAS in the dirt-and-hay-floor, which is designed for winter growing. You’ll also find ginger, horseradish, and ashwagandha. Jean and CA use their Hoop House all four seasons of the year. Their 5 acre Medicinal Farm in Virginia is a place worth visiting. See their website cajfarm.com for more information.
