Who we are: We are modern Homesteaders, living self sustaining and simple. We have no Doctors License and no Medical Training. We are Health Enthusiasts who have been on a "Good Health" Journey the past 30 years. In our sixties, after much research and experimentation...we stay healthy, energetic and happy using natural practices. We are Gluten/Sugar and Dairy Free. We make our own Kombucha, Water Kefir and Organic Bone Broth. We eat no GMO's or processed foods. We are constantly taking classes on Staying Healthy, Organic Gardening, Beekeeping and Chicken Care. Jean took the Master Gardener Class in 1998 and hasn't slowed down since! She is currently in her 3rd year of Herbalist Training, and plans on taking at least one more year.

Directions: GPS doesn't understand us...please use these directions C.A. & Jean Howard 5620 East River Road Foster, Va 23056 (We are actually in the Mobjack area, just past Bohannon, but they closed our little post office years ago, so our post office is Foster now.) GPS seems confused as to where we are…it says turn right onto Robert E. Lee Drive, but our driveway is actually right before and running parallel to Robert E. Lee Drive. Sometimes GPS will take you past us to Mobjack Bay, so keep an eye out for our Farm sign. From Gloucester: Go to Business 17 and turn right on Rt. 14, go into Mathews County. After you pass the North Star Shell, continue on Rt. 14 until you see the Foster Post Office on the left. Turn right there onto Rt. 660, continue on this road for about 3 miles and you will reach another stop sign, make a left onto East River Road. Exactly 3.2 miles down the road you will reach our driveway on the right. You will see our sign, C.A. & J. Farm. Our divided driveway is right before Robert E. Lee Drive, do not turn onto Robert E. Lee Drive From Mathews: get to Rt. 14, turn left onto RT 660 at the Foster P.O., continue on this road for about 3 miles and you will reach another stop sign, make a left onto East River Road. Exactly 3.2 miles down the road you will reach our driveway on the right. You will see our sign, C.A. & J. Farm. Our divided driveway is right before Robert E. Lee Drive, do not turn onto Robert E. Lee Drive. Any problems, give me a call. Jean Howard 804-815-2839
