A big shout-out and thank you to all of our fabulous customers and CSA members!
At Arlington Courthouse, the loyalty of our returning customers and the new ones we acquired once again anchored a successful season. And we can only admire the enthusiasm (and courage!) of our CSA members who were willing to take a chance that we would deliver in Year One of a CSA. By all of the accounts we’ve heard, it was also a success!
As our season winds down, kudos have to go to our field team, who produced some of the most beautiful produce anywhere! Rochelle, Emily and Ezequiel, take a bow!
Lydia’s Fields is the newest addition to the vibrant farming community 10 miles west of Leesburg, in Loudon County, Virginia that is also known as Wheatland. On 10 acres, we are carrying on the long local tradition of cultivating over a dozen varieties of scrumptious heirloom tomatoes, hakurei turnips, arugula, lettuce, herbs, kale, peppers and other greens.
We grow fruit and vegetables in harmony with nature and share our knowledge of small-scale farming with anyone curious to learn more about healthful, locally grown produce.
Our Growing Practices:
We focus on restoring the fertility of our soil through cover cropping, composting and, in a rarity for a farm of our small acreage, letting the land rest.
Our Future Plans:
We are only one year old, but we have big plans to install an orchard, expand our perennials, sell fresh pickles, build a barn, and a hoop house for season extension, and generally continue diversifying our operations.
