New Earth Farm is a working, sustainable and educational farm started by “Farmer John” Wilson in 1995. We grow and provide all-natural, chemical-free produce and products for the health of you and the environment! We put a focus on building healthy soil through composting, input of biological material, utilizing cover crops, crop rotation, natural mulches and more. We are also working on becoming a carbon sequestering farm through the making and use of bio-char.
We sell our products on the farm, through our CSA, at local retail stores and restaurants and at local farmers markets. We are located on 21 acres in southern Virginia Beach, VA in a convenient and fertile farming area known as “The Pungo Ridge” just east of the intersection of Princess Anne & Indian River Rd.
Our all-natural VB Grown products can be found at Fruitive, Whole Foods Market, Virginia Garden Organic Grocery, The Heritage Market, Old Beach Farmers Market at Croc’s, West Side Produce and Provisions, Five Points Farmers Market, on the farm and many other locations throughout Hampton Roads including some of the best local restaurants such as Commune, Terrapin, Taste Unlimited, Baladi, Hashi Food Truck and more.
We are proud to have won the 2012 Virginia Department of Conservation and Recreation’s local and regional Clean Water Farm Award for our safe and sustainable practices and biological treatment of the land (such as our 35′ buffer zone surrounding the farm) as well as the City of Virginia Beach Public Schools “Partner in Education” award in 2014.
