HIRING: DELIVERY DRIVER
Little Wild Things Farm is an innovative urban farm located in Washington, D.C. 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. We have two growing locations: one outdoor farm where we grow our edible flowers, and one indoor farm where we grow our microgreens and shoots. Both farms are located in Northeast, Washington, D.C.
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 a first generation, women-owned farm, we aim to be pioneers in the next generation of American agriculture, which we believe will be characterized by more sustainable, regenerative practices, greater diversity, and more localized production. We are a small, fast-growing team and we put heart, soul, and grit into working on the farm every day.
