Our Story . . . The idea for the store grew from the frustration of trying to find Virginia-made items for holiday gift baskets. Hours were spent searching various websites and stores and placing multiple orders—there had to be a better way! We originally opened in 2010 in downtown Harrisonburg with an assortment of Virginia's Finest food products and works by local craftspeople. In 2013 we purchased The Farmhouse in Woodstock and expanded our selection to encompass wine and beer. Recently we have expanded again to add organic beans, flours, grains and spices to our inventory along with aromatherapy and soap making supplies like essential oils.
We have almost everything imaginable produced in our beautiful commonwealth--from apple butter to cheese and crackers to wine. And with a variety of wine-ing and dining accessories such as bottle chillers and openers, cheese boards and knives and decorative plates, we have virtually everything you need for a picnic, party or cookout. We also offer custom gift baskets and bags as well as gift cards.
The Virginia Farmhouse supports the local economy. You can always find locally sourced coffee, dairy, eggs, honey and meat here. We carry and array of functional crafts from local artisans including pottery, soap, wooden kitchen implements and hand--knitted scarves and hats. Our product line is always changing, so stop by often to see what’s new!
Just in: Gourmet salts from JQ Dickinson Salt-Works of Malden, WV. JQ Dickinson Salt-Works produces hand-harvested, small-batch salts sourced from ancient brine deposits that lie underneath West Virginia's Kanawha Valley. We carry their Heirloom Salt (plain salt) in refillable grinder jars as well as there Apple-Wood Smoked Salt and Ramp Salt. The Heirloom Salt tastes like a very mellow sel gris- it is the same salt used in Rt 11's new Salt & Cracked Pepper Chips. The Apple-Wood Smoked Salt has a sweet, smoky scent and a rich earthy flavor. The Ramp Salt is subtly flavored with local ramps (a plant related to onions and garlic)- the scent is similar to Indian Black Salt and has a chive like flavor.
