Frequently Asked Questions
Is the Farm and CSA open to the public?

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!

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, 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.

May I visit the farm?

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.

I'm interested in volunteering. Where do I sign up?

We have several volunteer positions open each year. Please visit our Get Involved page to apply.

How does the pick-your-own portion of the Farm Garden work?

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 on signs at the end of each bed. Ask at the farm Stand for what beds are open each week.

Do you sell raw milk or A2 milk?

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 herd-share programs; there are a small number of these serving the state. None of our milk comes from farms that are tested A2.

We sell ice cream from Trickling Springs Creamery, and offer other dairy producsts as well as milk CSA shares from South Mountain Creamery in Middletown, Maryland. South Mountain Creamery products are incredibly fresh, and are gently pasteurized and bottled on-site. Their herd of Holsteins and Jerseys are kept on pasture, supplemented with non-GMO forage, and the milk is never exposed to hormones or antibiotics. SMC prides itself on transparency and welcomes visitors 365 days a year!

What happens to the leftover food from the Farm Stand?

We donate food every week to Loudoun Interfaith Relief or the Dulles South Food Pantry.

I live in Willowsford, do I pay for the farm with my HOA fees?

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.
