CHARIS FARM & HOMESTEAD, Jen Ferinde & Family
Locust Grove, Spotsylvania County
CNG Certification Pending
Charis is committed to walking out our home and farm with integrity, uprightness and grace to our family, our animals and those that purchase our products. We are a small homestead located just south of the Wilderness Battlefield. Everything that grows here is for the purpose of abundant healthy life from the soil up. We grow regeneratively because it’s not just about the end product but the quality of the land and what we leave behind in the end. We grow a wide variety of items, first for our family and next for our like-minded friends. Eggs, broiler chickens, turkeys, pigs, cows, fruit and veggies are some of the many items. All animals are pasture raised and lovingly cared for from life to death. We use Certified Organic, soy-free products for any animals receiving grain and in the garden we use only lovely compost and homemade natural spray if needed. We look forward to sharing the blessings we receive from this land with all of you.
Pastured, Organic, Soy-Free Chicken Eggs now available each week for interested FACSAP members! $8 per dozen.
30 young hens now starting to lay eggs, joining the 8-9 older hens. So far, about 4 or more dozen eggs will be available each week. Three dozen have already been sold!
Please email Jen Ferinde firstname.lastname@example.org or stop by the FACSAP Side Share table during Thursday’s harvest distribution. For the next few weeks, eggs are available on a first come, first served basis. Once the hens are established in producing more eggs, an Egg Share will be offered to FACSAP members.
[Jen will deliver the eggs fresh each week to the FACSAP Side Share table. She will bring whatever eggs she has each week for direct purchase. Cash payments only.]
Pastured, Organic, Soy-Free Turkey
20 Turkeys are growing and will be ready the week before Thanksgiving in November. Four have already been sold! Details and pricing coming soon, and a Turkey Share will be offered to FACSAP members.
Pastured, Organic, Soy-Free Chicken
Chicken broilers are expected to be ready in the Spring. About 50 will be available every 8 weeks, starting in June 2020. More details will be available soon, and a Chicken Share will be offered to FACSAP members.
THERIANOS FAMILY ORGANIC FARM – in the village of Kallithea on the island of Zakynthos, Greece
Ancient olive groves on the island of Zakynthos in the Ionian Sea in western Greece. Our family has lived and farmed here continuously for the past 600 years. Some of our olive trees are 1,500 and even 2,200 hundred years old! These are of the ancient Dopia variety, which is found nowhere else in the world except here on the island of Zakynthos.
Possibility for a FACSAP Organic Olive Oil Share – Details coming soon! Please see Stavroula Conrad at the «Side Share» table if you are interested. Here are links to the farm’s websites and Facebook page:
