About the Farm
The Farm at Sunnyside grows certified organic fruits and vegetables, available at the Reston & Dupont Circle farmers’ markets and through an on-farm CSA. Central to our mission is managing the farm not only for organic food production but also for native wildlife and the beneficial services that come from a healthy ecosystem.
As part of our ongoing effort to improve the sustainability of our farming operation, we installed this spring 175 solar panels on the roofs of our two main farm structures that combine to provide 49,000 watts of generating capacity. Our goal is to produce enough clean energy to cover 100% of the electricity used by our farm structures and houses.
The Farm at Sunnyside places a premium on conserving and improving the natural environment. We do so because we believe it to be both an important goal in its own right and also an integral part of sustainable agriculture.
