About Support the Center for Rural Culture

Now more than ever, we are aware of how important local farms are to our community. When national supply chain disruptions occurred, Virginians turned to local farmers. Fortunately, they were there for us. However, to keep these farms in business for years to come, we must continue to buy our groceries from them.

Fall Line Farms & Local Roots exists to keep small family farms in Central Virginia. Supported by the Center for Rural Culture, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, the online farmers market supports 58 farms and food businesses, preserving 2,900 acres of farmland in our area. And it is truly local -- food travels an average of 33.5 miles to market. (Most grocery store food travels 1,200 miles!)

Help the Center for Rural Culture keep Fall Line Farms and Local Roots open for our farmers and for our community by making a donation today. 

Our friends at the Virginia Farmers Market Association will process your donation via Flipcause -- a secure payment processing platform for non-profits. You can help offset the payment processing expense by covering the fee when you check out.
