One Acre Farm

One Acre Farm We are a diversified vegetable CSA farm in Montgomery County, Maryland, offering shares of produce year-round. Our current pickup locations are in Dickerson, Poolesville, Capitol Hill, Potomac, the Palisades, and Rockville.

CSA stands for Community Supported Agriculture. By enrolling in our CSA, you get a bag (or two) of seasonal, grown here on the farm, vegetables per week through the growing season. We grow year round, too!

This Arugula was Saved from the Compost Pile - Community Food Rescue

One Acre Farm worked with Community Farm Rescue to keep bolted arugula from the compost pile.

Winter arugula retails for $12 per pound, but the crop could have been a total loss for One Acre Farm , located in Dickerson, Maryland. Fortunately, this story ends well, and the prized spicy, leafy green ended up on dinner plates rather than in the compost pile, thanks to two Community Food Rescue....

It takes a village. We put on the plastic for the mushroom tunnel today. This tunnel will be a fruiting chamber for the gorgeous mushrooms @stefan_fawn_brady has been growing for the season! We’re all really proud of this good lookin’ tunnel and think Stefan did a fantastic job leading this project. It was great to have an impromptu helping hand from @thefertrellcompany, too!

It’s a long-game strategy here at the farm… In the first photo you’ll see a small high tunnel we bought from a neighbor down the road, lined with landscape fabric and bordered with long wooden planks. LONG WOODEN PLANKS?? Are these guys nuts?!? We know, we know, wood bows and breaks and isn’t necessarily the most weather resistant material if it isn’t pressure treated. But it is with the proper sealant. @planttoprofit_farmerellen told is about a really neat product we could use as a protectant for the wood, Vermont Natural Coatings, a natural wood preservative, that she learned about from Ben Hartman @claybottomfarm. No pressure treatment!! 💯

The strength of the local food system is dependent on many things but one of them, that we know we can do right now, is create opportunities for farmers to come together, share, and learn. On Friday we hosted a gathering for food and flower growers in Montgomery County, the "Mini MoCo Farmers Conference."

It was a lot of fun, not only to be together, but also to brainstorm, discuss challenges and applaud triumphs, and be open with each other. Our goal is to make this community about support, not competition.

@sandyspringgardens gave a great presentation on cover crops with useful and impressive photos of their operation; @sungold_flower_co delved into the scary world (for farmers) of marketing and sales strategy and helped us understand it more; @freshmamafarms led a discussion on being flexible on the farm and making changes as we see fit; Farmer Mike of @oneacrefarmmd mediated a passionate discussion of issues farmers should be advocating for in MoCo; and Farm Manager Charlotte of OAF conducted a immersive and interactive breakout session that focused on being there for our peers through "Active Listening."

We hope this won't be the first "mini conference" of its kind and that we continue to be there for each other in our quest to create a vibrant and resilient local food system.

Deadon is a gorgeous cabbage we are growing for the first time this year. It is unique because it can stay in the fields all winter (“overwintering”).

10/07/2021

When we start to see little brussel sprout buds growing along the stalks of the plant, we know it’s time to strip the stalk of leaves so all the energy of the plant goes into making those little buds of sprouts. Some farms leave the stripped leaves on the ground but we like to give it out as part of the CSA share and also to @adventisthc employees as part of our market program. The leaves are DELICIOUS and can be prepared like collards or kale. It’s basically brussel sprouts but in “big” form!

Solidago or “goldenrod” is an important species in the makeup of the beneficial native plants on the farm. On the outskirts of the fields, you can see these bright, golden-yellow towering spires (three feet tall or more), waving in the wind, enticing pollinators like bees and butterflies. With so much goldenrod on the farm, the bees kept here by @joelongfx will produce a honey that is “dark and interesting.” You can learn more about the bees, making honey, and beneficial species at our Fall Farm Party, coming up on October 23rd. Link in bio.

I debated to post this or not.
I’m applying to be on a local food council committee. They need a resume for the application. As you can tell I didn’t spend a ton of time on it but honestly I wasn’t sure what else I could even add!
I’m am equal parts proud and embarrassed.

Pretty sure I wouldn’t hire me🙃

One Acre Farm's 2021 CSA is open for Enrollment! We hope it's going to be our best year, yet!
Introducing: Community FarmShare! For some of our neighbors, the challenging year of 2020 launched them into a place they never imagined they’d be - facing food insecurity. According to Feeding America, today 1 out of 8 people in MoCo are food insecure - an increase from 1 in 12 pre-pandemic. Community FarmShare (CFS) helps provide a solution to this problem by linking food insecure families with local vegetable and fruit (table crop) farmers to provide healthy, nutritious food.
