Avery's Branch Farms and Creamery is situated on the rolling hills of Amelia, Virginia. Located in the beautiful countryside outside of Richmond, their farm offers wholesome, natural products to the surrounding areas. This is a small, family-operated farm offering all natural eggs, grass-fed poultry, pork, seasonal produce, and rich, creamy milk from their beautiful Jersey cows through their cowboarding program. The Alexander family looks forward to sharing their bountiful harvest with you and your family.
We are delighted to also be providing RAW MILK to the Richmond area through our cowshare program. Please visit our website for more details.
