Richmond Welcomes New Organic Urban Farm




Sun Path Family Farm is a new urban farm located in the Oakgrove/Bellemeade neighborhood of Richmond, owned and operated by Alia Chambers and Jeremy Carry. They started as hobby gardeners, growing food for their household of five and saw the benefits in growing their own food and supporting local farmers’ markets because the community had limited access to fresh, organic produce.

            After viewing an online video about bio-intensive urban farming that allowed farmers to grow large quantities of produce on small plots of land, Chambers and Carry realized they could grow enough food for everyone, including restaurants, chefs and local grocery stores. They established Sun Path Family Farm in February. Their love of gardening has not only become a shared passion, but a shared life’s purpose.
