Lydia’s Fields is a 10-acre diversified vegetable farm located in a dynamic, collaborative 400-acre farming community in Purcellville, Virginia. We cultivate multiple varieties of heirloom tomatoes, figs, and asparagus, as well as hakurei turnips, arugula, lettuce, herbs, kale, peppers and many other vegetables that thrive in our region with regenerative growing practices. And we have fun doing it! We sell our produce through direct and wholesale channels including a 100+ member CSA, a weekly market in Falls Church, VA, and wholesaling to local restaurants and neighboring farms. We focus heavily on maintaining and restoring soil health and believe that fresh, tasty, healthful food comes by growing it in harmony with nature.

  • Harvesting, washing, and packing vegetables

Qualifications:
