Farmer Spotlight


Cameron D. Terry is an urban farmer in Virginia and the founder of Garden Variety Harvests

@gvharvests in Roanoke City, VA. 

Their motto is "EAT YOUR YARD" and Cameron is working with people in his local community to make the most of potential urban growing spaces around the city.  Locals in Roanoke City can apply through their website to become a Garden Variety Harvest Farmer and join their farming collective.  Once becoming one of the Garden Variety Harvest farms Cameron and his team will transform the once boring grassy yard into a thriving garden and give the land-owner back a weekly basket of assorted produce collected from their farms.  Cheers to less mowing grass, growing food by locals for locals and giving back to the community!

If you live in the area and maybe don't want to join the farm collective but are interested in some delicious fresh, local produce from Garden Variety Harvest farms, you are in luck!  You can find them at the Grandin Village Farmers Market and the LEAP Mobile Market, as well as on the menu at Rockfish Food & Wine, Blue 5, Montano's International Gourmet, and The River and Rail.

Cameron also runs a garden blog in which he shares his experiences, knowledge and happenings at Garden Variety Harvests Farms, check it out here:

Also, check them out on IG @gvharvests and on Facebook. 

Here is an awesome video from their Facebook page using their Treadlite Broadfork!  #broadforklove  :)

Just recently Steven has done a few educational videos on broadforking using his Treadlite
Broadfork. Way to go Steven for being an advocate for nature and self sufficient living.

Mike @the_fit_farmer_ and Lacie Dickson @yurt.momma are farmers and homesteaders on their

farm, Big Pond Farm, in Concord, North Carolina.  They are a nature loving family who left hustle and

bustle of city life for the country homesteading life.  On their youTube channel they share their family's successes and struggles of homesteading to help guide others who are embarking on this adventure.  In this video Mike and his family open and assemble an exciting mystery package that has arrived on their farm.. spoiler alert - it's their                 Treadlite Broadfork.  ;)  


 Mike uses his background from a professional career in health and fitness with his passion for farming to create fun family friendly videos to support a more healthy and sustainable lifestyle.  Be sure to check out more videos from Big Pond Farm on their youTube channel (link below) and follow them to stay up to date on their homesteading adventure!  

Thanks Dickson family for being an advocate for sustainability!
