We started farming in 2006 after moving to the 400 acre, multi-generational farming community of Wheatland, in Loudoun County, Virginia.
About Greenstone Fields
Our farm is located 50 miles west of Washington, DC, in Loudoun County, Virginia. We are one of 5 farms that make up Wheatland, a vibrant agriculture community on 400 acres. We grow over 100 varieties of cut flowers using methods that nurture the soil and encourage pollinators. Our story is part of a growing movement to educate the public about fresh, local flowers.
