Reviews for: Potomac Vegetable Farms
First CSA and I'm coming back for more
By: Ralph Wolman (Feb 4, 2015)
I have never joined a CSA before. This is because I don't like the idea of getting a basket of food I may not like. PVF is different. They have a market style CSA on certain days of the week. This allowed me to "shop" for what I wanted each week. It's like having your own farmer's market! I found the quality and variety wonderful - so wonderful, I came back for the fall CSA and winter CSA. And, I've already signed up for next summer's CSA.
This Farm Needs More Reviews!

I've been a customer of PVF for many years. Their produce is superlative in both quality and taste. Their staff are courteous and always willing to help. My only problem with them is that they can't be open year-round, and it is disappointing to have to shop for out-of-area produce during the winter. However, I know the farm and the people need the break, so I reluctantly don't give them too hard of a time.
I love the fact that not only is the produce beautiful and tasty, but the farm itself is 'ecoganic' and everything they do also has the environment in mind. It's a win-win for everyone.
Simply the best!

I first encountered Potomac Vegetable Farms as a customer at Arlington Farmers' Market 20 years ago. As many DC restateurs know, their produce stands out from the rest. As someone who likes to cook, much of my summer grocery list was bought on Saturday mornings from PVF. 13 years ago I moved to Loudoun County with my family, thinking I would have to leave the market --- and PVF -- behind.
But what do you know -- I had moved just miles from PVF West! In the years since I have subscribed to the CSA and even volunteered as extra labor on the farm and worked in the roadside stand. My relationship with the farm, its workers, and its vegetables is a close one. Ellen has really grown the farm since the early days; her blend of common sense practicality and idealism has yielded excellent results. She is constantly trying to improve the quality, the quantity and the variety of vegetables and keep CSA shareholders and marketgoers happy.
From the variety in the weekly shares to the information in the newsletter to the PVF collection of recipes -- PVF goes above and beyond.
