How Our CSA Works
of our CSA program receive fresh, high quality vegetables for 18 weeks from our farm and other family farms close to
Washington. The CSA runs from May through October. During the season we will skip some weeks because of holidays
or gaps between crops.
Weekly pickups are on Monday
evenings at the farm and Christ Church located at 6th and G Street SE. Pickup times at both sites are from 5:30
pm to 7pm. If you are running late, you can call us at 301-237-7538 and we will
be happy to leave a packed-up share for you in the church courtyard or at the farm.

What Will Subscribers Receive?
The size of the shares varies from week to week, being abundant some weeks and smaller others. The spring
shares include strawberries, lettuce, peas, greens, radishes, onions, kale and other early crops. Beginning in July,
the shares will consist of summer produce such as squash, tomatoes, beans, peppers, corn and melons. Fall shares are
similar to those in the spring but are usually larger. Click here for full CSA crop list.
Our farm is Certified Naturally Grown
(CNG). CNG is an alternative certifying program for small family farms. Farms that are Certified Naturally Grown
must follow natural growing practices that as strict if not stricter than the the practices required by the Federal National
Organic Program (NOP) certification system. For years we were certified by NOP but decided that there were too many
paperwork requirements that were relevant to a large organic corporate farm but not to our small family farm. CNG is a better
fit for us.
