Our Beginning

Fork & Hoe Farm began out of a love for food, nature and community. Nathan had been a chef but longed to learn about the production side of food. After a few seasons of apprenticeship, we started a small CSA using local backyards in 2014. We saw a need for regenerative local agriculture and specialty produce in the DC/MD/VA area, realizing that local, farm fresh food not only tastes better, it is better for the environment and connects communities in a deeper way. We did a local CSA in MD from 2014-2016 which included vegetables, fruit, chicken and pork all raised in the most natural and ecological ways possible and learned a ton about how to work with nature and our community. In early 2017 we moved to Hague, Virginia and started Fork and Hoe Farm.

Agriculture changes the landscape more than anything else we do. It alters the composition of species. We don’t realize it when we sit down to eat, but that is our most profound engagement with the rest of nature.
