Owner Robert Schubert was building on the tradition of spectacular organically grown vegetables when he purchased 10 acres of Wheatland Farms from DC farmers market veterans Chip and Susan Planck. In its first season at the Courthouse Farmers' Market in Arlington and the University of Maryland market, Lydia's Fields quickly became a go-to stop for shoppers wanting reasonably priced delicious heirloom tomatoes, arugula, lettuce, turnips, beets, squash and other greens. Come try for yourself and meet our team: Rochelle Bellin, Marsha Johnston, Emily Starck, Erika Bowman, and Emil Friberg.

Sorry about the delay with our veggies this year! The cooler temps and large rain showers have slowed us down just a little bit. The sun and higher temps have helped our plants grow more this week. We will start selling our food at Loudoun Station Farmers Market in Ashburn in early June and our weekly CSA shares will start at that time too!! We can’t wait to share our delicious veggies with you all. #LydiasFields #LoudounGrown #LoudounStationFarmersMarket #LoudounValleyHomegrownMarkets #AshburnVa #LoudounStation #PureVirginia

It is inspiring to hear from our farmer friends, colleagues, and supporters about the various options when it comes to selling our food in the current circumstances of COVID 19. Our "babies" (plant starts) are growing strong in the greenhouse, we are harvesting generous amounts of micro greens weekly, and the asparagus harvests are increasing by the day. With our beginning harvests so far this spring, we are helping supply the farm stand at Georges Mill Farm Artisan Cheese in Lovettsville Va (today Molly will be putting our asparagus, lettuce mix, and micro greens out). As our harvests increase, we will be both supplying our CSA (there are available half and full shares!!!) and also selling through the farmers market. Check out our "store" at: https://www.localline.ca/lydias-fields !

Thank you for your continuing support of our farm. As always we are looking forward to supplying you and your family with delicious, locally grown food.

Hi there, I've been trying to get in touch for about two weeks, and am wondering when pick-up begins. It's getting awfully late in the year.
Great conversation with Robert. Looking forward to meeting you at the Root to Table Chef and Farmers dinner at Audley Farm Angus. We would love to have you join Taste of Blue Ridge.
