Old Orchard Farm, Shipman, VA

Welcome to our “work in progress” website!

We are a small family who bought some land and started growing our own food as much as possible, a number of years ago now. We started with a garden and laying hens and it went on from there. Farmers markets tend to be pricy and if you have the space it is worth trying to grow/ raise what you can to save money and have the freshest food possible! We have a lot to fit in besides our “day jobs” but it is worth it when you  sit down for dinner and you  have grown everything on your plate.


We really believe that  “you are what you eat!”, and enjoy sharing the food that we produce with members of our community so they can benefit too from the great nutrition that nourishes our bodies and keeps us healthy.

We are not a large farm, and we have to eat/sell the whole animal before another is butchered so you will have to be patient if your favorite cut is sold out! Just buy it when we have it and keep it in your freezer so then you have it !

Eat well!

The Buteau family

An Update :

Our Farm Market has been open at the Rockfish Valley Community Center in the Concession Stand since January 2017, but unfortunately we will be closing this outlet for local farm foods at the end of April.

Until then we will be OPEN every Wednesday 9.30-12 noon and Saturday 9-12noon. Great food and good prices!

The good news:

I am working on alternatives, so that you can continue to enjoy our beef, pork and lamb, as well as Joyces eggs, plus Dan and Diannas vegetables. I will always have Ula tortillas around for our family and for sale!

The easiest way to keep in touch and up to date with what is happening is to receive our farm newsletter:

It has been thoroughly enjoyable meeting new people and making new friends at RVCC, and I hope you will come out to the farm for our “market days” … more later!

One more Bonfire and Potluck!

Come and celebrate the start of summer, changes, new growth and abundance at an early “Mayday” community potluck and bonfire. Sunday 28 April 5.30pm till …

Thanks for supporting our little market in the valley these last 2 years!
