What Are We Growing?

Here’s what we plan to grow in 2017. As everyone knows, some varieties do well one season, others to better another year. We can’t promise but we’ll sure be trying to produce all of these. Most seeds are open pollinated from organic sources. All of our farming is done biodynamically, which is an advanced form of ecological agriculture (Also, with a true local ecological CSA, you will be eating with the seasons which means that you will get the fruits and vegetables at their appropriate weeks of the years i.e. you will develop a keener sense of the rhythms of Nature in the DC-area when you are eating from a local ecological farm )
