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

We are busy at our farmer’s markets in Arlington on Saturdays and on Sundays in Takoma Park.  We also have an on-farm stand in our green barn, set up with social distancing and ease of shopping for all our great produce in a peaceful open-air setting.  Flowers are available Thursday-Monday, and eggs from our pastured chickens are available on the farm, too.  We are fully in tomato season now, and have peppers, squash, cucumbers, eggplant, potatoes, herbs, greens, garlic, and much more in season!

Here is a link to our online store, for bulk orders for our CSA and on-farm customers at this time.  Produce is available for walk-up purchase  on the farm and at our markets, too.

We are open at our self serve stand in the green barn 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.  Customers aren’t allowed in the greenhouses, and should pre-order plants using the online store to maintain safe and efficient access to the good things we grow.

In Fall 2019, we marked the 20th year of our farm, and we wrote a song to tell the story of our farm.  Here is a video of the song, recorded in our green barn and self serve stand.  You can also see a home-made video tour of the farm in its September 2019 peak, with dominoes and music!  Our sons worked hard on this; Eric played the Banjo.

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

The CSA is 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.
