Little Wild Things City Farm
- District of Columbia
Little Wild Things Farm is a pioneering urban farm located in Washington, DC growing Certified Naturally Grown microgreens, shoots, and edible flowers for wholesale and retail distribution in DC, MD, and VA. We currently serve over 50 wholesale customers including the area’s premier restaurants, caterers, bars and hotels. We also distribute to several local and online grocers; operate a weekly online farm share; work with one local distributor, and sell direct to the public through our ecommerce platform and a farmers market. Our team is on a mission to prove that sustainable agriculture is commercially viable in urban landscapes, and that farming is the best job out there for smart, talented, hard-working, innovative thinkers. As first generation, women farmers, we are innovators in the next generation of American agriculture, which will be characterized by more sustainable, regenerative practices, greater diversity, and localized production. We are a small, fast-growing team and we put heart, soul, and grit into working on the farm every day.
We turn under-utilized urban spaces into productive gardens for our communities to enjoy. We use land-sharing agreements with local organizations and donate produce back to the landowners and on behalf of the landowners to our neighborhood homeless shelters.
