Fossil Rock Farm
After purchasing my Shenandoah farm in 2010, I concentrated on producing fruit, vegetables and raising chickens for eggs. I sold at several markets in NOVA, primarily with Smart Markets. I also offered a CSA which was very successful. I have always been interested in soap making and had the opportunity to take over a 20 year business from a friend who was retiring. I have been very successful with the soap business and have stopped growing produce to concentrate more on the soap. All my soap is made from 100% natural, plant based oils. This is what I sell at markets now as well as carrying Local Honey and Jams & Jellies produced by a Mennonite family nearby.
