Organic Fruits & Vegetables Near Washington, DC
Located 70 miles west of Washington, D.C. in Rappahannock County, Virginia, The Farm At Sunnyside grows certified organic fruits and vegetables for sale locally. Land not in agricultural production is actively managed for biodiversity and beneficial ecosystem services.
Consumers can purchase our produce at the Dupont Circle and Reston farmers’ markets and through an on-farm community supported agriculture program. We also supply a limited number of wholesale outlets and fine restaurants.
The Farm At Sunnyside blends sustainable agriculture with environmental protection. Our commitment to organic production means that our food as well as our soil and water are free of toxic chemical residues. We take additional actions to restore habitat for native wildlife, including the pollinators that help make it possible to grow a wide diversity of produce.
Our land is protected by a conservation easement ensuring that it will never be developed. And we are continuing to search for ways to reduce energy consumption and diminish our carbon footprint.
Welcome to our website and thank you for taking the time to learn more about us.
