The Washington D.C. region's premier 12-months-of-harvest CSA, growing great foods since 1996. We are a highly diverse certified organic farm, growing over 140 varieties of vegetables, fruits, herbs, and flowers for bouquets. For the safety of our CSA's foods and because we are so committed to great vegetable and fruit quality, we DO NOT buy produce from other farms, auction houses, or produce wholesalers and then re-pack such questionable stuff for our members. Three distinct CSA membership options: a High Summer CSA (300 families; application deadline late June); a 6-month (April 25 to Nov.1) Farmers' Market Option debit CSA (220 members) and a unique Winter CSA (200 families; November-April). We also sell to fine restaurants and stores, and at the Saturday Farmers' Market in Chevy Chase, WDC. We specialize in heirloom vegetables of the finest flavors, and grow our foods slowly to maximize quality and to protect our farm's vibrant ecosystems.

I've been a winter CSA member for 5 years and this has got to be the best CSA in the DC area. The foods are excellent, often hard-to-find varieties.
