One of the coolest aspects of my job working on the Arcadia Mobile Market this summer has been visiting sustainable farms and farmers in the Washington, DC area. On Monday we took a trip to Northern Virginia to visit our milk and egg suppliers. The Moo-Thru Stand, where we get our milk, is a kitschy little creamery stand in Remington, VA. David, the store manager is just about the nicest guy I've ever met, and the abundance of cow regalia relates the Moo-Thru to a comforting archetype of rural ice cream stands in my mind.
Helen's Hens is an pastured hen farm in The Plains, Virginia. The landscape at the farm is absolutely gorgeous. The hills roll by and when it's sunny the sky and clouds look like they've been painted. After spending so much time in the DC metropolitan area, it's relaxing to return to a slower, less chaotic landscape.
Much of the content that I'm shooting at these sites will be used on Arcadia's blog or in a forthcoming video series for their YouTube channel. I'll link to that content through social media as it becomes available. Nonetheless, I had some extra footage that I put together to make this little clip from The Plains.
