Pioneers of 21st century organic farming on the Eastern Shore, Janice and Rick Felker established Mattawoman Creek Farms in 2005, providing much-needed organic vegetables to local and regional families. Their business has grown steadily, and they now supply many farm-to-table restaurants springing up in the metropolitan areas of Hampton Roads as well.
Rick and Janice Felker wanted a family farm that would provide income, exercise, and learning while also protecting the marshlands and waters of their beloved Chesapeake Bay and the soil as well. Organic farming has proved to be the key to fulfilling their goals, “a challenging yet always rewarding endeavor.”
Everything offered by Mattawoman Creek Farms is grown on their farm itself, and everything is certified as 100% organic by the USDA. And Mattawoman goes one step further, with independent certification as organic by Quality Assurance International.
Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) is a program in which consumers subscribe and pay a seasonal fee in exchange for local fresh produce. Mattawoman subscribers enjoy a colorful mix of fresh produce, both traditional and heirloom varieties, along with storage tips, recipes, the crop list, and farm news.
