As members of a strong community, we find it both exciting and essential to seek out and use as many local products as we can. By striving to bring our couples and their guests the best of what Virginia, Richmond, and Powhatan have to offer, we firmly believe your experience here at The Mill at Fine Creek will be that much more captivating…because fresh, local food just tastes better! Whether we are pulling fresh herbs and produce out of our own garden, or seeking a close-by source, we opt for the best available products wherever we can. For this reason, we are happy to have chosen Adelaide Hills Farms of Powhatan to be our only source for eggs. Not only are their eggs of superior quality, but their ethical treatment, as well as their passion and commitment to their farm, have endeared us to them as truly amazing vendors.
Owned by Alan Michael and his family, Adelaide Hills Farm lies Just 4 miles from The Mill and is also a purveyor of not only eggs, but beef and chicken as well. Their quaint farm hosts a refreshing combination of the hard work and good old-fashioned charm that we absolutely love, complete with endearing conversation and laughing grandchildren.
Perhaps it is because we are also a family run business who sees the value in watching the future generations try their hands at our particular craft, but there is something quite humbling about watching the children playfully gather the chickens as if they are just smaller members of their own family.
Our commitment to fresh, quality ingredients helps define us as a company whose values go beyond the basics and right to the heart of what matters. We love being able to say here at The Mill, that the capable and respectful hands that prepared your food extend beyond our dedicated chefs and directly back to the local, family-run farm from which it came.
