Aligning with our mission to use local, seasonal and organic produce whenever possible we have partnered with these local farms.
Tuscarora Organic Growers Coop Hustontown, PA
TOG,took root in 1988 when a group of neighboring organic fruit and vegetable family farmers discussed the possibility of joining forces in the marketing of their products. By working together, they could coordinate crop production to complement one another rather than compete. The family farmers could enjoy economies of scale in shipping and selling. In the coming season, TOG will work with over 28 member producers and 17 non-member producers to bring a projected 100,000 cases of produce from farm to city, offering locally grown, certified organic produce all 12 months of the year.
This certified USDA Farm is located only 30 minutes from DC. Co-Farm Manager at Our House, Stephanie Jones’ admiration of Hawthorne’s “persistence inspired us to set up a system where we could deliver bi-weekly to local restaurants in the DMV area”. Hawthorne was the first on their list in DC to receive a bi-weekly delivery of their amazing organic produce which includes, Russian Kale, Spinach, a variety of herbs, potatoes, garlic, scallions, free range eggs and other organic goodies. The Farm at our house is close to our hearts since they train formerly incarcerated youth in agriculture and construction.
