Old Dominion Organic Farms is located in Southern Virginia, just off I85 approximately and hour south of Richmond and an hour north of Raleigh. Jordan Brandon is a twelfth generation farmer, in a family of farmers dating from 1654. While his family’s farming heritage began with tobacco and other crops, each generation has worked toward improvement in practice, efficiency and sustainability. An example of adapting with the times would be during the 1930’s. With depressed commodity prices Jordan’s great grandmother was able to send turkeys, farm made jams and hams to Eleanor Roosevelt in the White House.
Old Dominion Organic Farms offers organic alfalfa, broccoli, cabbage, corn, soybeans, cauliflower, and green beans. The farm has the equipment, experience, infrastructure and labor to quickly adapt to market needs. Our strategic location allows us to harvest our produce at peak ripeness and deliver to metropolitan centers along the east coast within a day of harvest.
