WE ARE SOLD OUT FOR THE 2020 SEASON.
It appears due to the Corona pandemic the interest in local food is elevated. As much as I woudl like to accomodate as many people as possible. The farm is only capable of producing so much food through the season.

To keep the CSA manageable I offer only 50 shares this season. Historically I have had approximately 10-15 shares available for new members each season, shares are now available for new members. I deliver to specific neighborhoods in NW DC and Montgomery County so I select new members close to my established routes. On farm pick up is also available in Brandywine, Maryland.
We are a small diversified farm using organic methods located just 20 miles south of Washington DC near Waldorf, MD. Our primary crops are seasonal market vegetables. We also raise pastured (but not organic) ,eggs, chicken and turkey for meat. The CSA includes produce and eggs but not poultry. Poultry
available upon request as available.
We provide 18 shares between May and November. Shares are $32 per week with a $7 per week delivery surcharge, surcharge reduced one week this year to accommodate customer's vacation off week. We do not require members to work on the farm thus are more of a subscription vs. classic CSA operation. However, members are welcome to visit and work when they would like to. Members are continuously accepted until all shares are sold.
We DO NOT offer half shares and recommend that you alternate weeks with another family if you think a whole share would be too much.
Generally a share is adequate for two good vegetable eaters or a family of four for several meals. There is usually never enough strawberries and too many eggplants, peppers or squash or whatever crop is overly prolific each season, it varies year by year.

A new strategy for a new season
It seems so simple grow a vegetable garden and distribute them through a CSA. The challenge is to keep the crops producing for the whole season. Unlike many other farming enterprises CSA farming is a continual cycle of plant, till, maintain, harvest repeat.... [more]
