At Fat Canary we have been super lucky to work with Jo and Rob Pendergraph since we have been open. Their stuff is as good as it gets which helps us be as good as we can. Thanks for friendship...and your killer products.

Rob and Jo, Great food starts with great people! Thank you for the wonderful food you grow.

Their squash blossoms are the best I've ever had. Manakintowne's micro greens last a good four days longer than others'.

~Mike Ledesma, Perch, Richmond, VA


Gratitude and thanks for providing us with beautiful and delicious produce this growing season. May your soil continue to bring forth its bounty...

~Kate Collier, owner, and all the staff at Feast! Charlottesville, Va.


You have done so much to add the extra quality to the guest table. Your vision about sustainable farming, introducing locally grown products and working with the Chefs to enhance their knowledge and understanding about organic products was always admired by me……

~ Executive Chef Hans Schadler, CEC, Waypoint Grill, Williamsburg, Va.

Manakintowne's greens make exquisite, delicate salads.

~Becky Lillywhite, Local Roots Food Co-op, Central VA


Your greens last 3x longer than commercial product.

~Kevin Roberts


You won’t find two folks more laid back and unassuming but don’t let that fool you – they are growing some of the best stuff around...and care more than anyone probably should!
