Help us nourish neighbors in need

We grew well over 4,000 lbs of vegetables this year on our 1/8th acre test plot, and we donated about half of our harvest. We made lots of deliveries to local food pantries, and to First Fruits Farm, where the produce was picked up by Baltimore food pantries in their network. Donating a substantial portion of our best produce to those in need is a priority for us in years to come. Please reach out if you know of a local family or organization in need that could use our produce. 


Our long term goal is to develop a financially viable strategy to offer healthy produce, hospitality, and educational opportunities to those in need at little to no cost. When you buy our produce you are supporting this cause.

We are now offering CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) shares, where you can sign up for a weekly subscription of vegetables. Our CSA includes an option to pay more than the market price to help us cover the cost of giving produce to those in need. Donations are always welcome as well. Though we do have an important social mission, we are not a 501(c)3 non-profit, so donations are not tax-deductible.

Support our plant sale

In 2021 we sold over 1000 plants of over 50 different varieties of vegetables and herbs through Veteran Compost. Our pre-order plant form for 2022 is now live!

We are offering CSA (community supported agriculture) shares in 2022 on a sliding scale to accommodate a variety of budgets and dietary needs. Pickup will be available at our weekly farm stand, and other pickup locations are TBD. Scroll down for more details.

What is a CSA?

CSA stands for Community Supported Agriculture, and involves a weekly subscription of vegetables. As a CSA member, you commit to supporting our farm for the season, and you get the best picks of our harvest each week. We are offering a new CSA program that gives you the option to help sponsor a share for a family in need. 


Our CSA shares are semi-customizable, so upon signing up, you will take a survey where you can opt out of items you don't want and opt in to items that you'd like more of when available. We will put together your shares with these preferences in mind, and include a new recipe each week for you to try. 


For more information on the history of the CSA model, here's a link to an article about CSAs I wrote for the St. Ignatius E-zine:

A sample assortment of items that would make up a regular sized fall share. (1 bag salad greens, 1 buch kale, 1 bunch turnips, 1 bunch chard, 1 pie pumpkin, 1 lb peppers, 2 lbs eggplant, 1 lb heirloom tomatoes, and 4 lbs butternut squash)

2022 CSA Share Types and Pricing

Our CSA operates on a sliding scale: pay less if you are experiencing financial hardship, or pay extra to help someone in need get the same great produce that you enjoy. 


The CSA will last 20 weeks, beginning the week of June 6th and ending the week of October 17th. If there is a week that you cannot pick up your share, you can opt to have a someone else pick it up for you, or you can opt to donate it. 


CSA is a great way to eat local and seasonal, but it is a big commitment. If you are hesitant about signing up for produce each week, you can always come and shop the farm stand for a season and see how you like it.
