About Our farm
We are a small family run specialty farm located in beautiful Woodbine, Howard County, MD. We have been using sustainable responsible growing methods for the past 30 years. Our farm uses organic methods. Along with our own growing, we link with other local farmers to provide for our expanding C.S.A. This also ensures that you will have the widest variety of farm fresh goodies and reduces the risk of crop failure that you will find with a one farm C.S.A. If one crop fails, chances are another farm will have it. The growing methods of our farms include Natural, Certified Organic and Integrated Pest Management practices. Our goal is to grow the most nutritious healthy food, including heirloom varieties for taste; the way our grandparents did. Our heritage breed chickens are raised on pasture, fed a vegetarian diet, allowed to scratch for bugs and act like chickens the way nature intended. The chickens lay eggs of many colors that some people find amusing. You will taste the farm fresh difference. Other livestock raised naturally are our sheep and alpacas. The wool from these animals is used for our fiber creations such as socks scarves, purses and more.Our pork, meat chickens and beef are raised on pasture for us by local small family farms. They are well cared for and some have won "Grand Champion" ribbons at the county and state fairs. The results? Tender, delicious and flavorful.
In addition to growing vegetables, berries, flowers and herbs, we have our own delicious raw honey. jams, relishes; sauces, made with fresh local fruits and veggies. We link with other local farms and carry cheese, butter, yogurt and milk. New is ice cream, made with some of our farm fresh ingredients. We also make goat and sheep's milk products including soaps, lotions, and creams using premium ingredients. Our soaps are all olive oil based and suited for the most sensitive skin. Sometimes we also infuse our products with our own herbs which can also be skin soothing.
Products are sold through our C.S.A., more information is available on the home link, our farm store. which is open every Saturday, year round from 10-2pm, and our new country store which is located on Frederick Rd. and St. John's Lane. 9090 Frederick Rd. Thurs.-Sun.10-6pm.
