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 (200 families; application deadline late June); a 6-month (April - Nov.) Farmers' Market Option debit CSA (220 members) and a unique Winter CSA (200 families; October-April). Delivered members can now also customize their vacation time to credit towards future subscriptions or specialty products. We also sell to fine restaurants and stores, at the Saturday Farmers' Market in Lexington Park, MD, and at the Saturday Farmers' Market in Chevy Chase, WDC (start 4/28). We specialize in heirloom vegetables and fruits of the finest flavors, and grow our foods slowly to maximize quality and to protect our farm's vibrant ecosystems. Maryland Department of Agriculture Organic Certification # 2017-056.
Our warm season crops include heirloom tomatoes, cucumbers, potatoes, strawberries, blackberries, mushrooms, sweet potatoes, eggplant, squash, herbs, peppers, melons, etc., and superb eggs. Come to our farmers' markets in Chevy Chase and Lexington Park for great diverse organic foods!

The gorgeous array of wintertime greens and the luscious fresh eggs (with thick, rich, orange yolks that have ruined the store-bought variety for us) keep us coming back year after year. Try it and you won't look back!
