Winter storms can be pretty cool.
Lots of greenery this week - head #lettuce, #chard, #springmix, and #parsley. We hope you’re ready for some #holiday #salads! You’ll also find #beets, #onions, #shallots, and #garlic in your shares. Don’t forgot we also have self serve #eggs at the farm stand for all of your holiday baking needs!
No, silly farmers, that’s not what eggs are for! If you’re low on juggling material (or maybe you just want to bake cookies), we have eggs in the Farm Stand cooler. $6 per dozen, cash payments in the blue lockbox on the left or PayPal us at [email protected] 🍳
Check that bad boy off the to-do list! Farmer John has our vintage tractor, converted from gas to electric power, back up and running. It’s older than anything else on the farm (including the farmers), and it rocks because the frame design means we can see what the implements are doing underneath us as we drive. #sustainableagriculture #farmersaresometimesmechanics #winterfarming #loudouncounty #smallfarm #theydontmakethemlikethisanymore
It’s a sunshine-y day for Winter CSA! Week 3 includes the cutest, sweetest baby carrots, garlic, pac choi, potatoes, pesto, tomato sauce, spring mix, and shallots. We see fresh veggies and pasta dinners in your future!
All Penny and Finn want for Christmas is your vote for Willowsford Farm’s CSA in the Agriculture category of @ltmnews “Best Of” Issue!

Shoot us a PM if you have questions and we’ll connect you with our fabulous livestock farmer, Lex.
This little guy stopped by our Boat House #CSA pick-up tonight; he was a bit disappointed that we’re sold out of winter veggie shares, but he promised he’d check us out again in the spring. Farmer John decided to name him ZZ Top...
Week 1 of our winter CSA is here. In addition to this beautiful produce, we’ve got eggs, meat, and dairy. Who’s excited to eat fresh and local, year-round? #willowsfordfarm #communitysupportedagriculture #willowsford #sustainableagriculture #yum

Why join CSA?
🥦 🥦 🥦
One of the benefits of membership is that our most popular crops, when quantities are limited, go to our farm-ily first. Every one of our 247 shareholders is taking home freshly harvested sprouting broccoli from Willowsford Farm this week, before it’s available in large quantities in the Farm Stand.
Winter sign-ups for our vegetables and eggs, and partner farms’ milk and meat, are going on now!
Temperatures in the 80s can’t keep us from celebrating #decorativegourdseason! Give us a loaf of #chefBonnie’s pumpkin bread, our #CSA share, and some miniature squashes, and we’re set. Swipe to see #whatsinthebag for Week 22.
It IS early, isn’t it? Don’t let the most important meal of the day get you down. These are all mommy- and farmer-approved for some portable energy. Because #mondayiscoming. What else do you need to start your week?
#shoplocal #shopsmall #seeyouattheFarmStand

Don’t forget, bulk boxes totaling over $100 are eligible for a 15% discount off the retail price. Email us at [email protected] if you’d like to place a bulk order.
While you’re stocking up your freezer, be sure to check out the meat selections available alongside our vegetables in for Winter CSA subscriptions.

Morning Glory Farm occasionally tries a new or unique vegetable variety with varying success — and sometimes without any success at all. Take okra. They struggled to grow and harvest this finicky Southern specialty one year, but no one bought it. “No one wanted to use it, and no one cared,” sa...
