Did you know that Northern VA is home to MANY unique farms? Now that warmer weather is upon us, it’s time to start thinking about adding some fresh fruits and veggies into our meals. We are lucky to have some local farmers who make doing that both nutritious AND fun! Some of these farms also sell high-quality, hormone-free meat, free-range or pasture raised chickens & eggs, natural honey, cut flower arrangements and much more.

I personally believe it’s healthier and more ethical to consume foods that have been raised respectfully in alignment with nature and with minimal pesticide usage.  I choose organic products whenever I can for me and my family.  Additionally, exploring farms is one of my favorite ways to remain socially distant while still actively contributing to my community.

Listed below are some wonderful local farms.  I encourage you to visit and support them so that they may continue to thrive here in Northern VA!
