We are a small farm in Hanover, Maryland, located mid-way between Washington, DC and Baltimore, MD, near Arundel Mills Mall. We currently produce pasture-raised, all-natural pork, beef and lamb, as well as free-range eggs. We believe in treating our animals with love and affection, and allow them to live as naturally as possible. We never use drugs, such as growth stimulants, hormones or antibiotics (unless medically required). All of our animals live in large pastures and are allowed to move around and forage at will.
We prefer to raise heritage animals, which are breeds that have developed naturally, before the demands of the industrial food supply required selective breeding of animals to develop "desirable" traits. These traditional breeds are generally better able to withstand disease and thrive under natural pasture conditions. By raising these animals, we hope to help preserve the genetics of the original sustainable breeds.
We sell our products from a store on our farm, as well as at two area farmers' markets. Our farm store is open by appointment. Please call or email to arrange a convenient time to visit.
On Saturdays from 9am to 1pm, we will be at the Healthy Markets @ Baltimore Washington Medical Center farmers' market at 300 Hospital Drive in Glen Burnie.
On Thursdays from 4pm to 7pm, we will be at the Healthy Markets @ West County farmers' market at Van Bokkelen Elementary School, 1140 Reece Road in Severn.
Both markets have plenty of free, easy parking, plus great fruit, veggie, baked good and artisan vendors. Hope to see you there!
Our store is located on our farm, and is open by appointment. We are also open on most Saturdays during the farmers' market off-season, from 9am to 1pm. See our website for details!
We love Copper Penny Farm! We have had steaks, liver, pork shoulder roast and eggs from this farm and everything was delicious! Chuck and Nancy, the owners are great and so friendly; and the quality of their meat and eggs is stellar! Oh yes, the bacon is tasty too and it is a nice thick cut.... [more]
My husband and I have purchased meat from this wonderful family farm twice and have not been disappointed. The pork and beef we've had is so delicious, you really can tell the difference from grocery store meat.... [more]

I recently went out to Copper Penny Farm and met the lovely owners. They walked me all over their farm and introduced me to many of the animals. They are running a great operation and I'm proud to support them.... [more]
