JOHN & CAPPIE MONTGOMERY | CAPITAL REGION
In 2017, Cappie & John Montgomery approached Henrico County with a request that the County consider establishing a farmers market to serve the eastern part of the county. That initial conversation led to the partnership that has recently completed its second successful season as the Dorey Park Farmers Market.
When Cappie and John are not working to host and expand DPFM, they operate Fleur-de-lis Farms in Varina where they raise a herd of Nigerian Dwarf Goats. In the spring of 2020, they will be expanding that operation to production of a variety of cheeses and possibly other goat dairy products. The Montgomerys also have a large flock of laying hens that help to keep a steady supply of free-range eggs available at DPFM.
Outside of farming, Cappie and John both work in the legal profession, and John has served on the Henrico County Public School Board since 2008. Together they have four children: Joey, Jack, Travis and Sophie.
