Farm to Table Experience!
Join us for a unique farm to table experience Sunday, November 12th at 2pm at Rassawek Vineyard in Goochland.
Spend a very special day enjoying a farm to table meal prepared by acclaimed chefs Andrew Manning of Longoven and his RVA Brasa collaborator Stephen Farr.
Jeff Newmann of Northern Neck Seafood and Oysters Company will also delight us with the flavors of the bay.
The meal will be sourced from our market's producers. Manning and Farr will fire up their custom grill onsite the night before and will deliver a dining experience unlike any other. Our 30 foot long table will seat 60.
We'll have local wine, beer & cider tastings from Elk Island Winery, Lickinghole Creek Craft Brewery and Courthouse Creek Cider + live music from Farm Use and a special property tour of the amazing Rassawek vineyard via a 1909 steam train.
Tickets are limited, buy them today at www.centerforruralculture.org.

We also provide a variety of education and workshop experiences throughout the year. The Farm To Table event is our signature fundraising event.
About Fall Line Farms & Local Roots
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.
