As functional medicine farmers, we are called to help both people and planet in a way that brings people back together and back to nature. Our society is deeply disconnected from people. We lack trustworthy resources. And for the first time in history, children have a shorter predicted life span than their parents.
The Farm Life Movement was created to serve people and planet by providing shared experiences, trustworthy resources, and wellness education. We chose to live out our mission on a regenerative, biodynamic farm. On our farm, we grow clean food, formulate biodynamic products, and host events at our sanctuary.
We are currently headquartered on a biodynamic farm in the Creeds area of Virginia Beach. We grow vegetables, fruits, and raise 200 chickens and ducks for eggs. Each warm season, our calendar is full of farm-to-table dinners, wellness events, how-to classes, and visitors picking vegetables.
While we love being on the farm, we understand that the farm is far away from the community that needs us.
So we decided to expand The Farm Life Movement by opening up a General Store. Before their disappearance, General Stores served not only as a place of local eats and commerce, but more importantly, as a place to connect. Since we are functional medicine practitioners in addition to farmers, we decided to update the traditional General Store. No more penny candy. The space provides you with a “little bit of this and that” on your healthy living journey.
Our ethos requires us to source materials rooted in the understanding that they will serve as a catalyst for improving your health. We want to teach you by showing you, down to the air you breathe.
We hope you gather food and supplies from your local General Store BEFORE you head off to shop at the “big box” franchise stores.
