About CBF's Clagett Farm

At Clagett Farm, our ultimate goal is to use farming methods that are truly sustainable—both economically and environmentally. We find plenty of ways to use this hilly property for both commercial and educational purposes, including the following:

Community Supported Agriculture (CSA)

Registration for this year's CSA opens February 24 at 5:00 p.m.

We raise a wide variety of organic vegetables and strive to provide our food to people of all income levels. Our vegetables are for sale to the public through our community supported agriculture (CSA) program.

From the Ground Up

For 20 years the Chesapeake Bay Foundation's Clagett Farm has provided free and reduced-price, fresh produce to people living in poverty and near-poverty in Washington, D.C. The project, a collaboration with Capital Area Food Bank, blends local, sustainable organic agriculture with social justice. CBF calls the program, "From the Ground Up."

Native Tree Nursery

Our potted trees are planted throughout the Chesapeake Bay watershed as a buffer against erosion. Help us plant them! Check out CBF's volunteer calendar or send an e-mail to

Grass-Fed Beef

Our grass-fed beef is for sale to the public biannually. Send an e-mail to to be alerted when it goes on sale.
