Owner and social activist, Michael Tabor, started the farm in 1972 as a diaspora kibbutz. After the city folk retreated back to the city, Michael started farming in earnest and going to farm markets in 1974. Licking Creek Bend Farm consists of 60 acres, of which 5 - 10 are farmed each year. He practices a rotation of fields each year.
The farm is a Certified Naturally Grown farm with six full-time employees. Our philosophy is that a sustainable food system starts with local farmers, who know their customers. We maintain a 120-member community-supported agriculture, (CSA) program, that accepts SNAP and WIC holding families. Our produce is sold to two Washington DC area food co-ops, at five farmers' markets and to two local universities through Bon Appetit Food Services. We sell direct to consumers in underserved communities, with our largest market on Saturday mornings in the Adams Morgan neighborhood of Washington DC, where a substantial percent of our business comes from WIC, SNAP and EBT farmers market programs. In addition to the wide variety of fruits and vegetables we grow, we also grow and sell sustainably maintained Christmas trees that are cut to order.
