CEA, Who we are & What we do
Loudoun’s farming roots go deep—there’s a reason this county was called “The Breadbasket of the Revolution”—and no one is more in touch with those roots than the Virts family, who have lived and farmed here since 1797.
Owner Donald Virts comes from 12 generations of Virginia farmers. He keeps those traditions close to his heart even as he changes the game of Loudoun agriculture through forward-looking innovation. With development and high land prices presenting new challenges to Loudoun agriculture, these 12th-generation farmers are spearheading innovations to preserve a time-honored tradition.
This is CEA Farms. And it’s what Loudoun farming will look like from here on out.
We meet this week at 1757 Golf Club for lunch from 12:00pm - 1:15pm. Lunch is $20. Please let us know if you'd like to attend (we do need an accurate head count for lunch) and learn more about Rotary and the Ashburn club!
