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 (230 families; application deadline late June); a 6-month (April - Nov.) Farmers' Market Option debit CSA (220 members) and a unique Winter CSA (200 families; Nov.-May). Delivered members can now also customize their vacation time to credit towards future subscriptions or specialty products. We also let CSA members pre-order during COVID, buy spontaneously at the Saturday Farmers' Market in Lexington Park, MD, and at the Saturday Farmers' Market in Chevy Chase, WDC (start 4/25). 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 # 2020-056.

Wow! My wife and I discovered this fantastic CSA about 14-15 years ago! The Even Star produce has changed our approach to eating and doubled our enjoyment of our meals! The produce is always super fresh! Brett offers simple but excellent ideas for cooking and serving many of his goods, which means we can have something more delicious than possible if we had to figure it out on our own.... [more]
Even Star Farm earns the 5 star review I am giving, hands down. My family has lived around the world due to military service, and we know something excellent when we find it because we have seen so much already.... [more]
