Welcome to the Bedford Grown Directory

The Bedford Grown branding program encourages farmers and producers to proudly display the Bedford Grown logo to signify when farm-based products are grown, raised or produced in Bedford County, Virginia. The program is a method for consumers, retailers, restaurants, farmers markets, and wholesalers to solicit and promote locally grown produce or locally made goods.

Want to buy local? Use this directory to find out what you can purchase right here in Bedford County.
