Event Details

Join Greenease and From the Farmer for a tour of David and Linda's Lay's Farm - Linda's Mercantile!

Linda's Mercantile, now in its 6th year, grows fresh produce and fruits. They are also home to five greenhouses they use to get a jump start on tomatoes and growing greens. Onsite is also an apple cider distillery, and their onsite market gives consumers access to home made pasta sauces and apples sauces using the farm's own produce!

At it's simplest, From the Farmer is a service that brings the farmers market to consumers' front door. We source fruits and veggies from local, family farms and deliver them directly to our customers in insulated baskets. Delivery occurs overnight, so that when you wake up your produce is waiting for you (we like to think of ourselves as the veggie milkman). Unlike a traditional CSA, we operate all year long; there's no cost to join, no obligation to receive a delivery, and orders are customizable, too. It's an awesome way to eat seasonal, super fresh, local produce, without giving up total control of your refrigerator! We also offer fresh local bread, and coming soon-- local eggs! 

Join us on Saturday, June 14 as together, with Linda's Mercantile, we host a farm tour & lunch. The farm is approximatley 1 1/2 hours from DC. We will be leaving DC (Dupont Circle) at 9am, and returning that evening by 5:00/5:30pm. The tour includes:

  • Roundtrip Transportation (Pick Up in Washington, DC - Dupont Circle)
  • Tour of Linda's Mercantile farm and greenhouses
  • Tour of Winchester Ciderworks Distillary & Cider Tasting*
  • Lunch and beverages
  • A thank you gift from Greenease, From the Farmer and Linda's Mercantile

*You must be 21 to attend the cider tasting component of the program.
