Big news from the farm! We have eggs for sale! Finally the girls have started laying in numbers which can satisfy both our families and our customers.

We are only publicising availability here on Instagram and Facebook to give our loyal local fans first dibs. We’re heading into the hallowed “double yolk” time that most hens go through just after they start laying whilst their bodies figure out how to do it. #winning

We’ll be putting up the sign at the end of the driveway next week sometime so if you want some eggs, now is the time - Once the sign goes up, the girls struggle to keep up with demand.

As always, the eggs are from our free range hens, fed non-gmo soy free LOCAL feed from @ernstgrain and fed an abundance of veggies.

Speaking of which, if you come to the farm for eggs please bring any clean egg cartons you have as we can reuse them. The chickens also love all your un-carved un-painted fall pumpkins.

DM us for the farm address if you don’t know where we are located.

GSF refrigerator is restocked! It is a self-service system with everything costing $5, (2 for $5 or peppers are 10 for $5!).

We have arugula, super greens, baby kale, green cabbage, Napa cabbage, radishes, bok choy, and loads of delicious sauerkraut!

Come by and help yourself if you are in the Middleburg area. DM for the address. Parking is in front of the red tractor shed and the self-service refrigerator is inside the white building (follow the sign for eggs/milk).

A parting gift from the last ladies of our OG flock of chickens! The last 2 weeks we have been giving away our 18 month old chickens so that we are just managing one flock, and today the last 5 went to one of our CSA members.

We started with about 40ish chicks and a set of plans from @thejustinrhodesshow for the Chickshaw 2.0 and actually used a lot of his design principles for the chicken palace which can hold up to 200 birds!

We won’t have to wait long for the new flock to start laying and then we’ll be flush with eggs for the next few years!

Gotten to that point in the year where we have more vegetables growing then we can sell at the farmers market! So we have an honesty store system set up at the farm!

Everything is sold at a $5 value (no change on site so please bring exact cash) and is 20% or more below retail.
We have bags of spinach, arugula, salad greens, sauté mix. All 1/2lb bags.

We also have bunches of kale, collard greens, mustard greens, radish and eggplant - all bunches are 2 for $5.

Boxed jalapeños and shish*tos too.

Well after a unseasonably early frost in late September, we are now having temperatures in the high 70s, and it’s giving our ‘hail mary’ seeding a fighting chance.

You can display them and then turn them into a pie for thanksgiving. Or why not try a delicious pumpkin soup? #fallfarming #pumpkin

Today is a special day because not only is it National Farmer's Day but it is also Sarah's birthday! ⁠

Farmer's Day is a day to celebrate the hard work farmers put in to grow food! This year Sarah worked dang hard to grow food and also grow baby Alek. ⁠

Farming through the hottest July on record, whilst 8 months pregnant, and only in the second season (I.e. more on the to-do list than could be achieved with 3x the number of people and 3x the amount of time available to us), Sarah earned herself some serious #momgoals points. ⁠

This past few weeks has felt like a sneak peak of fall temperatures and it has been a wonderful respite from the intensity of July.

Another sneak peak of fall, this beautiful Cinderella pumpkin grown by our very own @julia_polentes who has some personal growing projects that she is working on in her own time.

We can’t wait to see how they turn out!

After some late night manoeuvring (a.k.a. Pam trying and failing to back this thing up so instead drove around the farm in a big circle) the chicken palace is ready and in place for its new residents moving in tomorrow!

This has been a labor of love, starting off with Pam and her dad driving 50+ miles to get the trailer, Rik then extending the width 2ft on each side, framing it, building a roof and a deck for storage, steps for access, a chicken wire floor for p**p to fall through, Pam and Sarah then did the door (human) and the door (chicken), roosts, chicken wire around the top, walls, a paint job, feed and water system complete with rain water harvesting... not to mention caring for and nurturing the chickens that will live here...finally FINALLY, the day has come for them to move out onto pasture. #pasturedhens #chickenpalace #rikschicks #smallfarm #beyondorganic

This past Saturday Harry joined the team at the market for the whole day! It was somewhat of a gamble because he is the kind of baby that really REALLY likes cuddles i.e. can’t really be put down. But as you can see from this picture, we had a willing volunteer in @erika_stt who was able to oblige him. #babycuddles #farmbaby #farmersmarket #smallfarm #farmlikeamother #farmher

Choose a job you love and you’ll never work a day in your life.

Not necessarily true as farm days certainly feel like hard work, but with great food to pick, great companions to pick with and a great community to appreciate the fruits of our labor it certainly beats the rat race!

Posted @withregram • @bethhararphotography It’s all Business in the Front this fine Wednesday! Northern Virginia is full of wonderful small businesses! I like them so much more than the chains you can find anywhere. Don’t get me wrong - Starbucks can be a beacon of hope in a busy airport - but the small coffee-shops in the small towns of Northern Virginia are my favorite.
Photographing small businesses and helping them with their branding is even more enjoyable! I love finding their personalities, their stories, and their unique voices. All the little things make up a business, and photographing all the special moments - from the use of the products, to the interactions between staff and customers, to the small decorations in the workspace - help tell the story of that business.

Does our business need a branding boost? Are you yearning to tell the story of your company? Reach out - my website is in my bio!

Meet the farmers...

Sarah Waybright and Pam Jones are friends and farmers who together founded and run Gathering Springs Farm.

They met in 2017 whilst working at the local stalwart sustainable farm, Potomac Vegetable Farms. They were both working at PVF for similar reasons, to learn more about where their food comes from and how it should be grown for optimum health. But they both had very different journeys getting there...

Sarah grew up on a dairy farm in Pennsylvania and earned her Bachelor’s degree at Franklin & Marshall College in 2006, a Master of Science (MS) in Human Nutrition at Drexel University in 2010, and a dietetic internship through Utah State University’s distance program to become a Registered Dietitian (RD). A longtime DC resident, she has been featured by many Washington media outlets, including the Washington Post, The Express, DCRefined, WUSA9 and as a regular contributor to ABC7’s Good Morning Washington. She’s also been featured by local bloggers including fANNEtastic Food, Boderstan, and LadiesDC and health websites including The Active Times and SheKnows. She has appeared as a guest on the podcasts Foodie & the Beast, Beautiful Life Self Care, and RD Real Talk.

It was Sarah’s love for food, cooking and learning that lead her to farming, firstly as market staff at 78 Acres Farm and then as a farm apprentice at Potomac Vegetable Farms.
