Indian Valley Farms: A Retrospective

Indian Valley Farms was founded in 1989 by my parents, Randy Cohen and Lynn Chipkin.

My parents moved from Sea Cliff, New York to Indian Valley, Virginia to fulfill their dream of living off the land.

In 1990, they began selling vegetables at the Blacksburg Farmers Market.

We grew a variety of vegetables, and raised a flock of chickens for eggs.

My parents bought a tractor to tend the land.

They found a great deal of satisfaction in living off the land.
