About the Farm

Great Day Gardens is a market garden and wood-fired bakery in Forest, Virginia that links people to the land and food by producing healthy food for our community.

In the garden, we rely on natural sources of fertility such as compost, cover crops, and rock minerals. Our produce is never sprayed with synthetic chemicals, fertilizers, or pesticides of any kind. Although we are not certified organic, we strive for an abundant farm ecosystem and go beyond organic requirements by using gentle soil practices, planting pollinator habitat, and building soils rich in organic material.

Our bread is leavened slowly with wild yeast, adding complex flavors while facilitating digestion and nutrient absorption in the gut. Baked in a wood-fired oven, the loaves are crusty on the outside but soft and flavorful inside. Most of our bread is vegan, and we include organic and regionally grown grains whenever possible. You can also find our wood-fired pastries at Saturday farmers markets.
