Casselmonte Farm grows specialty vegetables and berries in Powhatan VA. All of our products are grown Come visit!
We grow asparagus, heirloom vegetables, shiitake mushrooms, berries, Bradford watermelons and Baby Ginger organically! We sell Thursdays, Powhatan Farmers Market (4:00-7:00) and Saturdays at South of the James Farmers Market in Richmond (8-12:00).
We have two varieties on the farm. A European variety called Plumblee and an old southern variety - Kieffer. Plumblee is sweet and juicy and we will make Pear Preserves from these. The pictured pears are Kieffers and they are destined to be pickled. Nothing better than working with your own produce particularly when you have beaten the deer, european hornets and other assorted pests
Farm cannot sell until things open up; but, if India or I are ill we are in the same position.
COVID - 19
There is much discussion about when and if our COVID-19 restrictions should be changed. A picture of April so far. I am not ready to get back into the water at this point. A significant increase in testing might change my perspective,

On the back porch of Casselmonte Farm hangs this sign. It is from India's childhood home in GA. One day I will have "nothing to do" or maybe I will just ignore what I have to do !
When Bill is not planting, picking or weeding !!
Bill Cox seeking District 4 seat
Bill Cox has announced his candidacy to become the District 4 representative on the Powhatan County Board of Supervisors.
India and Bill Cox operate a commercial vegetable and berry farm in central Powhatan nestled on the Appomattox River. Relative newcomers to Powhatan, arriving in 2006, they quickly became involved in the community. In 2015, India received Powhatan’s Chamber of Commerce’s highest award –The Kathy Budner Award - for community involvement. Bill, meanwhile, began his community involvement on Powhatan’s Planning Commission, where he has served for almost eight years.
Bill Cox is a native of South Carolina and a graduate of Emory University. He spent seven years in the Marine Corp Reserves and started his business career in Atlanta with the Chubb Insurance Group. Chubb, a specialty underwriter in the property and casualty insurance world, sent Cox to Virginia in late 1980 to build their Virginia operation. Cox has spent a life-time enjoying the outdoors – most often with a bow or fishing rod in his hand. His son, daughter-in-law and two grandsons live in Hanover County.
Politically, Cox has been an independent all his life and is a fiscal conservative. He wants to preserve the unique rural lifestyle that Powhatan offers, while understanding economic growth is needed. To blend the two, he believes Powhatan must brand itself as an alternative to Chesterfield and Henrico not a copy. That also means development (residential or commercial) must complement Powhatan not change it and must pass a right- scale/right- place test. Cox understands the critical need to bring more commercial development to the Route 60 stretch from Flat Rock east to the Chesterfield border. Large residential development in this stretch would bring more traffic congestion and higher taxes. Commercial development would bring jobs and an improved tax base.
Well, it's started ... baby Heirloom Tomatoes growing, growing, growing! Exciting!

My Mira asleep in my lap ... right where this 15.5 yr old should be!
9" of snow at 5 PM - Worried about the Hoop Houses. I was able to pull about 40% of the snow off - all I could reach !! Snow is tapering - we will be fine if it does not crank back up.
At 6+ inches, soup made for dinner, it's time for an Irish coffee. Dog snuggled next to me, two at my feet, Moody Blues singing to me, bird/squirrel feeders full (at least at this moment!), Bill happy. Let it snow ... it's gonna do what it will! Hope all are safe & warm.
