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

We are harvesting spinach and other greens as available on the farm for sale in the barn this winter.  Check the sign at the end of our drive for availability.   

Come work and learn with us!

We are now hiring for the 2022 growing season.  Interns are paid a starting stipend of $1800/month and receive free housing on the farm and produce in season. Check out our internship page.  E-mail us at waterpenny@verizon.net for detailed information and an application for this year’s growing season.

Farm News and notes:

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.
