Welcome to Waterpenny Farm!  We’ve been farming in Sperryville since 2000.

Check out our new online store!

You can place orders for plants and other farm products from this platform.  Our first pickup of pre-orders will be on Fridays, April 3 and 10, from 2-4 PM on the farm.  Our self-serve stand with greens, herbs, and sprouts is open on the farm as well.  We will also have pre-orders at markets in Arlington and Takoma Park starting later in April.  You can pre-pay with a credit card or pay with a check when you pick up your order.

We are not yet at markets but are open on the farm, with spinach, kale, sprouts, and tomato soup for sale.  We are cognizant of concerns about spread of COVID-19 and are pre-bagging the greens with clean hands to avoid having hands unnecessarily touch the greens.  We are sanitizing surfaces and handles regularly and hand-washing materials are available at the white sink in the barn.  We will adapt plant sales and market sales to maintain the safest possible environment for people to have safe access to the good things we grow.

For a weekly box of vegetables in season from the farm, buy a share in Waterpenny Farm CSA (Community Supported Agriculture).

The CSA is nearly full for the season! Each year we offer 19 weeks of vegetables from early June through early October. We have Wednesday delivery sites in Warrenton (at Whiffletree Farm), Arlington (at 3434 Washington Blvd.), and in Falls Church (at 3017 Fairview Park Dr.). Thursday pickup is at our farm in Sperryville.   You can register online or email us for a mail-in registration form.
