Welcome to Apriori Farm – just a small place in an out-of-the-way corner of central Virginia with a first generation farmer who’s learning as she goes along.  If you’d like to know just what happens on a farm or what’s involved in bringing food to your table, pull up a chair, hit the Blog button and I’ll tell you stories.

What’s Available This Week:

From the Garden:

Lettuce, Kale and sometimes spinach.

Loose leaf lettuce makes a stunningly beautiful salad or adds a pleasant crunch to your favorite sandwich.  It comes in 8 ounce bags and will keep at least a week in your refrigerator, but it's not uncommon for it to last two or three weeks.

I also have some fabulous Blackberry Jam in pints and half pints and Hot Sauce made with peppers and onions grown on the farm.

Farm Fresh Chicken and Duck Eggs:

The molt has passed, the days are getting longer and even though it’s still quite cold, the chickens are laying once again. However, the bitter cold snap froze our little pond and when the pond is frozen, ducks don’t lay eggs.  I just got the memo.  When the ducks decide to go back to work, I will post it here.

The Apriori Farm laying flock consists of Speckled Sussex, Silver Gray Dorkings and other heritage breed chickens. Chicken eggs come in brown, white and green.  My ducks are Khaki Campbells and were new to the farm in the spring of 2013 and they lay very big white eggs.  $4 per dozen.

I make weekly deliveries into the Brandermill/Woodlake area of Chesterfield County.  Please use the contact form to be added to the delivery route.  Alternatively, you can message me on the Apriori Farm Facebook Page.

Chickens:

Whole chickens are available from time to time throughout the year, but mostly in late summer or early fall.  They are great for slow cooking and making stock.  If you’re interested, let me know.

Honey:

The 2012 honey is sold out!  2013 honey – sadly, no honey this year.  The rain we had during the normal honey flow washed all the nectar and pollen off the plants, leaving the bees hungry.

How to buy:

I deliver into the Hampton Park/Woodlake/Brandermill area of Chesterfield, VA on Monday afternoons.  Shoot me an email to be added to my route.  rjsimoni@apriorifarm.com  or contact me through Facebook at Apriori Farm
