Lydia’s Fields, nestled in the rolling hills between Purcellville and Lovettsville, Virginia, sustainably grows figs and a wide variety of vegetables, ranging from arugula and asparagus to spinach and tomatoes, on less than two acres of land.
We believe that fresh, good, healthful food comes only by growing it in harmony with nature. At Lydia’s Fields, we also happily share our knowledge of small-scale farming with anyone curious to learn more about locally grown produce.
Our Growing Practices:
We focus on restoring the fertility of our soil in many ways. Methods we implement are cover cropping and composting. We let the land rest as well, which is a rarity for a farm of our small acreage.
Our Future Plans:
We want to continue diversifying our operations. Our goal is to build a hoop house to extend our growing season, and, very importantly, launch the Lydia’s Fields Veggie Share CSA in 2020. Please click here for more information. Full-share members may pay for half their share at the beginning of the season and the rest midway through the season.
