EatWell Natural farm is a 13 acre farm in La Plata, MD owned and operated by EatWell DC. Most of the produce goes to the 5 EatWell DC restaurants in Washington DC; Grillfish, Logan Tavern, Commissary, The Heights and The Pig. This year we are starting our first CSA on a very small scale. We grow a wide variety of seasonal vegetables and fruits without using chemical fertilizers or pesticides. We try to work with nature to improve the soil using crop rotation, cover crops, compost and mulch. Organic matter from the restaurants is brought back to the farm and composted to complete the cycle.
We love sharing our passion for local food and welcome farm tours and volunteers who would like to learn more about local, sustainable food growing practices. Please contact us for more information or to set up a visit.
Please join us for one of our seasonal Volunteer Days. We start the day with a tour then work on projects in groups for a few hours and wrap things up with a lunch provided by one of our restaurants. It's a fun day and all are welcome.
