What are we doing and what does it mean for you?

The goal of our farm is to go beyond organic.  By that we mean that we use the latest and greatest best practices in the ethical and responsible treatment of the farm, animals and  employees.  At the same time, we aim to produce excellent forage and supplements for all animals.  We do this by starting with the soil.  

  • Our goal is to create a 160 acre balanced ecosystem of perennial plants and pasture that provides more food per acre than a standard monoculture farm.
  • We want to accomplish this with standards that go beyond organic principles, and we want to use a minimal amount of fossil fuels.
  • Our current products include chicken, pork, beef, lamb, duck eggs and chicken eggs. As our perennial plants develop, we intend to provide nuts, berries, grapes, vegetables and fruit to the local market.

Once on the property, you’ll probably notice swales and berms. Our goal is to keep the water on our property and out of Maryland’s overflowing and corroding waterways. Keeping water on the farm helps our plants and livestock and it helps to Save the Bay.

You will also notice all of the animals out on pasture or pigs in the woodlands. None of the animals are contained during the Spring, Summer, and Fall when they are much happier out grazing.

Only organic chemicals are used on the farm. The non-ruminant animals are fed certified organic grains in addition to their grazing.  The ruminants are strictly 100% Grass Fed.

If you are like most of us, you probably learn best by seeing it for yourself, so call and visit!

The products raised on the farm are sold at our Farm Store.  We have ourselves been delighted to experience the improved taste and nutritional density of our products.
