2015 Meat Showcase Day is Friday, October 23rd from 3-6 pm
Want to see what real meat tastes like? Our Meat Showcase features free tastings of dishes using Glade Road Growing’s chicken and duck eggs, Strong Earth’s pork, and Hoof Hearted Farm’s rose veal and goat meat. Farmers will be on hand to answer questions about how we raise our animals on pasture and cooking techniques and also have meats for sale to stock up your winter freezer.
Our farm stand at 2351 Glade Road is now open:
Tuesdays 12 noon- 7 pm and
Fridays 3 pm-7 pm
Come by Fridays around 5 pm to find out about Blacksburg’s best kept secret.
Saturdays 8-2 pm and Wednesdays 2-7 pm we’re at the Blacksburg Farmers Market. Free and convenient parking available Saturdays in Virginia Tech’s Media Lot off Otey Street.
Glade Road Growing is a small farm on leased land across the street from the Heritage Park which produces and direct markets vegetables, chicken, duck eggs and more to the good people local to Blacksburg, Virginia. This is accomplished with the assistance of our energetic employees, along with the helpful hands of several neighbors and community members who just like to get dirty on the farm. We feel strongly that the resources to produce healthy food are right here around us and we enjoy helping other aspiring farmers in the area get started.
Our farming methods are based on building and maintaining soil health, biodiversity, and community involvement (read: fun). We do our best to serve as caretakers of the land by using organic matter-based mulches and cover crops. Although our intensive cultivation area only occupies about four acres, we also manage the remaining 44 acres of the property, part in rotational pasture and part in a managed riparian area for a tributary of Tom’s Creek. Come by and introduce yourself- we’d love to meet you.
