The Farm Bus Updated:05/2019

BusFarm is a 501(c)3 non-profit based in Richmond, VA. Our focus is on sustainable urban agricultural initiatives, including an urban agriculture-training center that will train youth and adults how to grow healthy soil, food, and communities. Striving to inspire and motivate people into action, BusFarm aims to provide the resources that help individuals take responsibility to sustain their communities. The BusFarm urban farm re-connects people back to the earth and their food through the hands-on processes of daily activities and seasonal rhythms including planting, harvesting, cooking, preserving, construction, composting, soil building, beekeeping, vermiculture, aquaponics, retail marketing, and entrepreneurship. Our goal is to create a local, regenerative, highly resilient model others can follow.

Farm to Family started as a mobile farmer’s market in a converted school bus in June 2009, delivering local and organic Virginia grown produce and products, and has grown to a year-round indoor market, USA Farm Shares and now the urban BusFarm. The business connects communities in the hopes to re-establish a personal relationship with locally grown food and to encourage a local diet of fresh grown/made products here in central VA.

Feeding Communities, One Stop At A Time

We distribute seasonal, locally grown produce, meat, and dairy products to families in urban areas and educate people about food security from our retrofitted school (farm)bus!

Our Farmbus is a mobile micro farmers market on wheels that can come to you -- OR you can visit our year-round indoor farmer's market!
