We have been farming since 2009, growing 5 acres of vegetables in Wheatland, VA, 45 miles from Washington, DC. Our growing methods follow the principles of sustainably-minded, ecologically-based farming. We work to produce tasty, beautiful, high-quality vegetables for our CSA, and to do this in a way that furthers the principles of person-based rather than corporate-based food systems.
Our CSA focuses on the ''staple'' vegetables people like to eat and delivers tasty, fresh produce Fridays late May or June to Thanksgiving. The share is on the smaller side, $507 for 22 weeks, with other size and season options -- check out www.secondspringcsa.com/csa

Although we have shifted more towards CSA we do still sell wholesale to people who have a personal interest in the food they're buying, such as the CSAs of other farmers, co-ops and corner stores, and other small business owners.
We like to work with people over the winter to plan what to grow during the season. Our main crops are red peppers, eggplant, carrots, beets, cucumbers, zucchini, and heirloom tomatoes. If you are interested in these or other crops, please get in touch. Thanks.
We're in our second year of using Second Spring and I absolutely love them - I really appreciate the weekly emails with insight about the farm, state of farming in general and recipes.... [more]
Last season was my first CSA membership. I reviewed all the various options available around me and chose Second Spring Farm based on the types of items that would be in the weekly package (mostly normal veggies I already used), the quantity (not a ridiculous amount that you could never finish), and the price / value....
