Spotlight: Cypress Grove Farm
Here at Cypress Grove Farm, we raise happy, healthy animals in a stress-free environment. This is something we are very passionate about and the main reason we started our journey into agriculture. Letting our pigs run and dig through the woods, our cows graze in open fields, and our chickens forage for bugs and seeds is a no-brainer for us.
In addition to our animals’ wellbeing, we have taken many other factors into consideration when designing our farm, such as our environmental impact, as well as what kinds of things go into our meat. We want our environmental impact to be as small as possible. Healing and improving the land is the best business model for the future.
In addition to grass and forage, our animals have access to recycled brewers’ grain and peanuts. Recycling food is one of the ways we reduce our carbon footprint to help the environment. Lastly, we are concerned about what goes into our food. The animals raised here on our farm are raised without the use of antibiotics, steroids, hormones, or any other chemicals. All of these qualities and values come together to create high-quality food for you and your family.

Fall Line Farms & Local Roots is a non-profit online farmers market in Central Virginia. We are a producers' co-op of small family farms and local businesses providing fresh local food year round to our members.
As a member you order when you want - there is no requirement to order every week. You shop by the item and there is NO MINIMUM ORDER. With one order and one payment, you are able to order directly from 40+ producers.
Our farmers share with you details about their products and their practices so you can make the best decisions for your family's health and nutrition needs. Completely transparent, you will know exactly where your food is coming from and are encouraged to contact your farmers directly with questions.
How Fall Line Farms & Local Roots Works
Each week our producers post the products they have available, setting their own prices, uploading their own descriptions and photos. You can read about their farming practices and contact them directly with questions.
Using our Buying Pages, you shop online with us any time between Friday at noon to Monday at midnight. You pay for your order online and then pick it up on the following Thursday afternoon between 3:00 and 6:00 pm at one of our Richmond area pickup locations.
Orders are delivered fresh, straight from the farms on Thursdays. Our producers share in the delivery process and we rely on volunteers to sort the orders at the pickup locations. This cooperative system allows us to keep delivery costs down to a minimum meaning more money goes back to the producers.
How we are different
Fall Line Farms and Local Roots opened in the fall of 2008 with one goal in mind, to help small farms through the challenging season ahead. Since then, we have grown and developed but never wavered from this basic focus.
Our innovative online buying program allows small farms to sell their products as they come available at a competitive fair price that is set by them.
There is no minimum supply required for them to sell, allowing very small start up farms to grow and expand into a larger marketplace. We like to think of ourselves as an incubator for small sustainable farms.
Because our producers share in the delivery, we are able to keep our costs low. That means more money goes back to the farms.
We are not a reseller. When you order you are buying directly from the producers in our market.
