Village Garden RVA is the chef and chile-lover's choice for delicious, fresh, high quality organic and chemical-free tomatoes, chile, herbs, spices, seasonings and specialty items for the well stocked, healthy pantry. We have our origins in family farming, starting in childhood with the important job of helping put food on the table, and now on 10 sustainably managed acres near Richmond Virginia, helping to put food on yours. In 2021 we are growing 100 types of chile (most of them very hot!) and about 200 types of tomato, mostly heirlooms! You may enjoy our fresh and juicy heirlooms or unique specialty produce at one of central Virginia's finer family restaurants, or sample an area brew that has been prepared with our lemongrass or chile.
This 2021 summer season we are co-sponsoring with Barboursville Vineyards Supper-Summer-Somm, a 10 dinner series centered around the heirloom tomato and Virginia wine. It features dinner presentations by central Virginia's top chefs and restaurants, starting on June 23 and ending with the "Grand Finale" at the farm on August 9. The tomato-centric creations will be featured in Food and Wine Magazine. Each participating restaurant is handling their own reservations (some are sold out already, weeks in advance) and will feature classic and innovative dishes paired with Barboursville's award winning wines.
New for 2021, our Hanover heirloom tomatoes are going into Black Heath Mead---voila, Hanover Sunshine Tomeado! Our herb, spice and HOT chili blends have become so popular at area farmer's markets that we've been asked by customers near and far to expand our reach---now you can get your finest culinary blends no matter where you live!
A few things that are important for you to know: we use only certified organic sources or our own chemical-free, home grown produce for all our herb and spice blends, because we want you and your family to have the healthiest and freshest food possible. And we are passionate about what we do---crop diversity, seed saving, advocating for local food systems and rare, exotic offerings are important to us, along with your utmost satisfaction with our products.
