Peacemeal Farm

Betsy Trice and her husband Chris started 12-acre Peacemeal Farm in Louisa County, VA, in 2011. They raise chickens, cows and goats. The farm also includes a 1/2-acre garden with vegetables and seed crops. Seed crops Betsy grew for Southern Exposure in 2017 include Nankeen cotton, Carolina Black peanuts, and Knucklehull-VNR southern peas. She sells vegetables through an online farmers' market and through her farm stand. Betsy teaches Sustainable Agriculture at J. Sargeant Reynolds Community College in Richmond, VA. Her mother, Cindy Conner, wrote Grow a Sustainable Diet and produced two of the three DVDs we sell. Betsy has been saving seeds since childhood.
