Shenandoah Seasonal uses sustainable and organic practices. Our systems for raising vegetables includes an intensive, raised bed method. This allows us to grow high yields on only 2 acres of land. We do not use chemicals but instead fertilize our soil using cover crops and by introducing new organic matter to the beds. While our methods are intensive, we believe they provide the highest-quality and most healthy produce possible.
FOUR SEASONS OF Produce
Shenandoah Seasonal offers an array of produce based on the season. In Spring at the start of the farmer’s markets you will find lettuce, spinach, beets, swiss chard and herbs. The summer months offer an incredible bounty including tomatoes, eggplant, peppers, beans and onions. In autumn you will find kale, onions, spinach, beets, and herbs. Our winter produce includes a large lettuce variety, spinach, beets, kale and bok choi. We utilize high tunnels (unheated greenhouses) to extend our growing season and bring fresh greens to winter farmers markets.
