Eat With Us

Small farms have always, by default, provided minimally handled product.  In fact, we’ve always offered no-contact-required pickup too.

But more importantly, our current situation brings to a head that our society is inflicted with a major problem of centralization.  The solution, therefore, is decentralization.

Buy local and know your farmer.

Restauranteurs, Bakers, Producers, Retailers, or for other wholesale interests, please simply call or email us. We are very reachable, and will provide you with a Product Price List. We make weekly Tuesday deliveries to the DC area.

Home buyers, you too may call or email us with any questions or curiosities, but we also have an online store with 1000ecofarms from which you can place easy weekly orders. Continue reading below for more details and information.

We grow here for people here. We know you want food that is grown nutritionally, tastes terrific, and is grown by someone you know and trust. If you live locally and would like to purchase organic vegetables, grains, flour, and beans directly from the farm (Wow! That’s practically a full diet), you may do so! We offer five local pick-up options, which you select on a per-order basis — whichever is most suitable for you that week!
