Green Vine Produce
(Leesburg,VA)We are a small farm located in Loudoun County, Virginia striving to provide the most fresh, nutritious, and sustainable produce to local consumers. Given our size, we haven't gone through the process of becoming "Certified Organic," but you can be assured that our growing practices follow the same principles as those farms that are certified (e.g. absolutely no synthetic fertilizers, pesticides, etc.). We are in the process of prototyping a new type of sustainable farming centered around the use of small plots, in the hopes that this practice will serve as a model for other beginning farmers/gardeners. Since we don't know how this will go or where this will lead us, we are currently offering CSA shares at a fraction of the usual cost. Also, unlike ordinary shares, if things don't go as planned with our prototype plots, we are offering our initial-season CSA customers the opportunity to get some or all of their money back. If you are new to the CSA concept, or even if you are a CSA veteran who finds it exciting to be involved in helping a small, local, sustainable farm get off the ground, we would love to have you as one of our first customers (and hope that things evolve into a lasting relationship)! We go above and beyond in many ways, including water conservation practices (e.g. rainwater harvesting, drip irrigation, etc.) and inventive forms of composting (e.g. vermicomposting). We also strive to reuse materials/goods from local business that would otherwise go to waste (e.g. coffee grinds from local coffee shops, food-grade plastic buckets from local restaurants, etc.). And finally, we never forget how fortunate we are, and always portion off part of our harvest for Loudoun's "Plant a Row for the Hungry" chapter. Please contact us if you are interested...we are excited about sharing this planet and the wonderful fruits/vegetables it allows us to produce with all of you!
