With the leafy greens on their way out, the first of the peppers and tomatillos have arrived (2019, W...

It’s #nationalcsaday 7 #great reasons to join our farm this year:

1. We grow delicious food as you get to choose freely what you take.
2. No pesticides, herbicides, or artificial fertilizers. Animals get certified organic grain and beef and dairy are 100 % grass-fed
3. Highly mineralized soils and regenerative farming equals nutrient-dense foods for you!
4. You can nearly eliminate your food packaging waste by eating from the farm.
5. Support Loudoun’s local economy, conservation, and a young farm family.
6. We make it easy to dramatically up the amount of veggies in your diet!
7. Spots are filling fast so don’t delay!

Bounty, we are getting ready for you!

There is so much potential energy stored in a seed. And in the root systems of pasture grasses and legumes, waiting dormant through the winter. This is the time of year when we start planning for the release of that energy, preparing ourselves to ride the wave of energy and growth through another season of farming. As farmers, we are managing an ecosystem. Every year our goal is to see that ecosystem and its inhabitants through another cycle of birth, growth, death, decay, and rebirth. Every year we marvel at the ecosystem of our farm- delicate yet powerful- and the privilege, and responsibility, of our role in it.

This week we planted the first large round of seedlings scheduled to go out into the field. These trays, planted in a room in our old farmhouse basement, heated with space heaters to germinate, remind us that after the long dark of winter, we have reached the first light of the hour before dawn. These trays will go into the warmth of the greenhouse later this week, then a month later into the field. Then a month after that will be on the CSA table for you, as harvested greens and salads mixes. In this pre-dawn hour we have scheduled and ordered our broiler chickens for the year, the first batch of which will incubated this week. The 300+ pound pigs that we will butcher in November are still inside the belly of their mother, who will be giving birth in the coming weeks on the Amish farm in Lancaster PA where she lives. And finally one that we can all see-- the grass is growing again. Little green shoots coming through the brown of last year's growth. This above all else is what gets me the most excited for the coming of a new season. There is a lot of life and light on the horizon.

There is an eternal optimism that comes naturally to farmers. It is something that makes this time of year such a joy. Of course these seeds that we are planting will grow great crops. Maybe the best yet. Of course the berries will be delicious. Of course we will grow loads of great grass, and our animals will be healthy, happy, and well fed. We flourish on the hope found in a seed.

The heart of our farm always lies in our vegetables. We are whole diet CSA, but for us, there’s no question that vegetables in large quantities are the foundation of a healthy and sustainable diet. Here is Rob’s favorite vegetable. To me, farm summers mean biting into into a sweet bell pepper like it’s an apple.

Hello! My parents live in Front Royal and are looking for a wonderful farm where they can at least get some good meat, if not some produce as well. Does anyone have any recommendations of something in the Front Royal/Winchester area? Thanks!
