About Woodside Farms
In 1870, people from all over greater Richmond came to this very land to pick the sweetest pears and cherries in Hanover County. Today, not only are we returning to our roots with the establishment of Woodside Farms, we’re branching out in new directions. Fresh vegetables. Herbs. Flowers. Fresh foods prized for their health and wellness benefits. Plus the ultimate gathering place—The Barn, featuring a professional demonstration kitchen perfect for hosting private parties and catered events. Welcome to the heart and soil of Hanover County. This is Woodside Farms.
We are proud to be growing for our Chickahominy Falls community and surrounding areas.

Our Growing Practices
At Woodside Farms we work in conjunction with nature, utilizing farming methods such as, cover cropping, integrated pest management, inter-planting, composting, etc. These methods are the foundation of our farm. By mimicking the natural state from which our crops originated, we are able to grow without the use of pesticides, fungicides, and herbicides. We believe that it is essential to feed our community safe and nutritious fruits & vegetables.
Meet your Farmers
Bryan and Meredith Aycock met in Jackson Hole, Wyoming, where their love of farming (and first daughter) were born. When presented with the opportunity to start their own farm in Virginia, they packed their bags and moved across the country. On Meredith's parents' land in Fluvanna County, they started and operated a Certified Naturally Grown vegetable and pasture-raised meat & egg farm. They are so excited to be continuing their farming venture at Woodside Farms. They are both passionate about healthy living and delicious, nutritious, locally grown food!
