Dear CSA members and members of the Western Loudoun foodshed,
We want to let you know that Great Country Farms is responding to the ever-changing circumstances surrounding the corona virus by growing as much food as we can. Our greenhouse is full of new starts: peas, lettuce, onions, spinach, broccoli, beets, radishes, red kale, green kale, lacinato kale, bok choi, kohlrabi, Swiss chard, carrots, sweet corn, egg plant, Brandywine tomatoes, jalapeños, leeks, and basil. We have potatoes and onions in the ground already, and we’re starting to move out early peas, radishes, and beets.
Our exploration of no-till planting last year taught us how to get even more food out of less space, and we expect to learn even more — and grow even more — this year. So even though it’s impossible to predict what restrictions and other surprises might come our way in the next few weeks, rest assured that we’re following the guidelines of the CDC and the State Health Department, and we’re ramping up production. We plan to supply Western Loudoun County with a lot of health-sustaining, nutritionally vital food. Red kale, green kale, and a number of other items are currently available through our online farm store. We’ll keep you posted as more items come in.
Thanks for supporting us, and for supporting each other.
