Products: Fresh, hand-roasted Certified Organic, Certified Fair Trade, and Certified Virginia’s Finest, Artisan Coffees all roasted by us in Staunton, VA. Grains of Sense® coffees are sold in 8 oz bags and can be purchased in whole bean or, weather permitting, freshly-ground. We also sell fresh-roasted, fresh-brewed coffee all year and, in the summer season iced coffee “by-the-cup”. In addition a limited, selection of flavored coffees are available upon special request..
Availability: All year.
Practices and philosophy: We are truly certified…Grains of Sense® is an inspected, accredited and registered Certified USDA Organic Processor. Through our Fair Trade Certification and as a Licensed Partner with FairTrade USA, formerly TransFair-USA, we promote and financially support programs that improve the lives of the people living in the communities where each origin of coffee we buy, roast and sell was grown. The Fair Trade Certified logo we place on each of our packages, means that we not only support the farmers and community from whence the coffees originate but that Grains of Sense® supports the global Fair Trade movement of all Fair Trade products.
In addition to our coffees being Fair Trade Certified and Certified USDA Organic, our Grains of Sense® coffees have also been certified as Virginia’s Finest through the Virginia Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services.
At Grains of Sense® we consider roasting coffee as fine art… We begin by first selecting the most distinguished coffees that can be obtained from the world’s coffee growing regions. Then much like a sculptor who can see the beauty and finished work in a raw piece of stone or wood, we roast the beans in small batches with minute attention to detail paid to every step and aspect of the roasting process – time, temperature, fan speed and airflow, each being documented until completed – each roast a masterpiece, each replicable. The result, coffees of extraordinary flavor and smoothness that showcase the subtle flavor nuances hidden in each coffee from the region whence it originated but brought forth through skillful roasting – and being completely honest, a little help from above!

Products: Farm-fresh goat cheeses: feta, soft cheeses (chives & garlic, Western ranch, Southern ranch, & plain) plus cheddar & jalapeno cheddar style hard cheeses.
Availability: Our cheeses are mainly available during “market season,” which is April through October at the Harrisonburg Farmers Market. We will accept special orders for the soft cheeses during the winter months. Our soft cheeses are also available at the Market in Woodstock and North Mountain Vineyard year round.
About Us: We are located in the “Heart of the Shenandoah Valley” where we raise our purebred Nubian “girls,” which are very spoiled. Our babies are bottle raised so they make great pets. Our “girls” are milked twice a day and are fed orchard grass/alfalfa hay and grain feed, which we mix ourselves. Our cheeses are all natural with no preservatives being used. We are licensed and permitted by the Department of Agriculture.
Besides the goats, we also raise purebred Black Angus cattle that Loren and Mary enjoy showing at local, state and regional beef shows. We have also added two young Llamas to our family this winter which we greatly enjoy!
Farming practices and philosophy: We are a simple farm and try to be as conservative as possible. We have a love for our animals and our land and treat both with great respect. Our farm is a “family affair” with all four of us sharing in the responsibilities.

Products: Certified organic blueberries.
Availability: Tuesdays, June through August.
About Us: Our blueberry horticultural group consists of myself (Roman Miller), my wife (Elva Miller) and our youngest daughter (Zoya Miller). We have a young operation based on a planting of blueberry bushes in the fall of 2009. We hand-pick and grade our blueberries for the market. Elva makes many of the blueberry value-added products, such as blueberry sauce, that we sell. We raise our blueberries in a split operation: most of our bushes are in our organic-certified plot, and a smaller comparative plot contains our conventional bushes. Our blueberry harvest season normally extends from mid-June until early August each year.
Farming practices & philosophy: We are currently conducting a multi-year experiment to determine optimal organic horticultural practices that enhance blueberry production. For example, we have four different organic plots based on different compost and soil additive treatments and are measuring differences in soil profiles, cultivar growth and vigor responses to the varying soil types and productivity and fruit quality from five different northern high-bush blueberry varieties. Our goal is to maintain a small commercial organic blueberry operation that produces quality fruit and is economically sustainable.
