Glade Road Growing is a small farm on leased land across the street from the Heritage Park. We produce and direct market vegetables, chicken, duck eggs and more to the good people in and around Blacksburg, Virginia. This is accomplished with the assistance of our energetic employees, along with the helpful hands of several neighbors 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.
