About Radical Roots Farm
Founded in 2000 by Dave and Lee O'Neill, Radical Roots Farm is a five acre family farm that produces high quality, ecologically grown vegetables in Keezletown, Virginia. We use sustainable methods of farming such as cover cropping, crop rotation, attracting beneficial insects and applying compost. Without the use of synthetic chemicals, herbicides and pesticides, we rely on hand labor and natural cycles for the healthiest soil and vegetables.

Notice the water catchment swales that were been dug on contour in March of 2007. Since they were installed they have caught and stored millions of gallons of rainwater and rehydrated the lower soil layers.
