We are a small, diversified family farm in Western Maryland here to provide our community with fresh safe food, and a friendly neighborhood farm. Specializing in Certified Naturally Grown produce, berries and mushrooms, you can find us at local farmers markets, in area restaurants, and through our CSA. We also offer fresh seasonal cut flowers!

In addition to veggies and gourmet mushrooms, we offer pastured pork. Our pigs are born and raised on the farm, free of antibiotics and artificial growth hormones, grazed in season and fed a custom feed blend, produce seconds and hay. We offer halves, wholes and a sampler box as well as by the cut at the farmers markets we attend.

Offering internships and educational programs too!
