Yes, the farm is open to all. We have a broad customer base and appreciate everyone who thinks our food is good and chooses to purchase from us. We are truly honored to feed any and all of you who trust us to grow food for you. We love you all.
Willowsford is a grand experiment in neighborhood, food production, recreation and conservation, and it is an ambitious and unprecedented goal for the farm to be supported entirely by the Willowsford community–if this were to happen, wow! That will give new meaning to the idea of Community Supported Agriculture, and maybe to the idea of Agriculture Supported Community. Let’s do it!
In the meantime, we are a fairly large farm and it is our responsibility to operate a viable farm business to keep these 300-acres of open space productive and self-sustaining. If we come to that bridge, we will surely find a way to provide for everyone.
Yes. We host several tours throughout the season and the Farm Stand is open four days a week. Bring friends and family too! Check our calendar for tour dates and locations. Because we are a bustling production farm and operate on three non-contiguous properties, we ask that farm visits take place during formal tours only, or pre-arranged with us directly.
We have several volunteer positions open each year. Please visit our Get Involved page to apply.
The garden beds are open for picking when the Farm Stand is open. Flowers, fruit and vegetables and herbs, as available, may be picked and clipped for a small fee, noted one signs at the end of each bed. Ask at the farm Stand for what beds are open each week.
No, it is illegal to sell raw milk in the Virginia Commonwealth and we don’t have any animals for dairy. Raw milk is available only through cow-share programs, there is a small number of these serving the state. We sell minimally pasteurized milk from Trickling Springs Creamery. Trickling Springs Creamery milk tastes great and all cows are grass-fed and pasture-raised. We know and admire several of their dairymen. In addition to common types of milk, TSC also sells a “pasteurized but not homogenized” whole milk, their Creamline product.
We donate food every week to Loudoun Interfaith Relief or the Dulles South Food Pantry.
No. The Farm is an enterprise of the Willowsford Conservancy, and independent 501(c) organization that manages over 2,000-acres of open space at Willowsford. The Farm is intended to be a viable farm operation, supporting itself through sales on- and off- the farm.
