It is a time of uncertainty. But we are certainly still here, hard at work, growing good food for you. The seeds are being planted, and the soil is warming up. And while we are not sure when markets will open this year, the CSA will be here, ready to supply you with local, nutritious food.
In response to the current COVID-19 crisis, we are focusing on our delivery sites for the 2020 CSA season. We have a few new sites in the works, and are looking for new porches in neighborhoods we are not yet reaching. CSA shares can be purchased weekly or every other week, can be customized each delivery, and will be dropped on a neighborhood porch for you to pick up without need for social interaction.
For those who find joy in a visit to the farm, we are still offering on-farm pick up. We are revising our food packing protocols for the CSA room and how to limit the number of members in the room at once to be sure we can accommodate any social distancing guidelines.
All members can be assured that only healthy people will be seeding, harvesting, and packing your vegetables.
Now, more than ever, is the time to be a part of our local food economy. Those dollars will go a long way in saving livelihoods and in keeping us all healthy.
Bodies are more resilient when we eat healthy, nutrient-dense vegetables, and we are committed to helping our local community have access to fresh vegetables. People are cooking at home more than ever before, and we are ready to get creative to find ways to feed people.
Who We Are
Potomac Vegetable Farms has been growing and selling delicious and nutritious vegetables for over 50 years. We steward our land using organic practices, forgoing certification, and calling ourselves Ecoganic. We make our own rich compost, and apply rock powders, natural minerals and sea products to ensure that our food is nutrient dense. We use winter cover crops and summer green manure crops religiously to keep our soil microbes happy and healthy. We sell all of our produce through our two roadside stands, our CSA, and at the farmers markets we attend.

Our multi-farm collaboration allows us to start our delivery season in June and include vegetables and fruits that we do not grow ourselves. All of the farms that help supply our CSA are whole heartedly committed to all aspects of sustainability.
