Ecosystem Farm at the Accokeek Foundation

Accokeek, Maryland
Family Farm

Located along the Potomac River, the Robert Ware Straus Ecosystem Farm is the Accokeek Foundation's 8-acre certified organic farm. The fields of the Ecosystem Farm are not ideal for growing produce. Subjected for centuries to continuous crop production, our farm suffers from loss of topsoil and poor drainage and fertility. But we believe that it is imperative to devise innovative farming techniques on this marginal soil, at a time when increasing demand conflicts with diminishing natural resources.

The farm's delicious and nutrient-dense fruits, vegetables, and herbs are sold at a Saturday On-Farm Market during the season, which is open to all. Farm tours and volunteer opportunities further engage the community to learn from this educational resource in Accokeek, Maryland.
