Vendor Updates

Vendor Spotlight: Elk Island Produce


This is Tim and Janice, owners of Elk Island Produce - an organic and hydroponics farm in Goochland, VA. Tim worked as a contractor for 30 years until his job “stopped being fun.” After that, Tim and Janice decided to start the hydroponics farm. Tim has been doing research on hydroponics for many years and finds this ancient practice quite fascinating! Come out to the Manakin and Goochland farmers markets to meet your lovely hydroponic farmers, Tim and Janice!
