Check this newsletter each week, as our procedures and policies are ever changing as we move forward in this crisis.

We are now encouraging curbside pickup for customers that prefer that. Please call when you arrive to have us bring your items directly to you.

Our farm store is open for shopping inside if you chose that method. Please be aware that only one customer (or family) should be inside our store at a time. Your consideration of others is greatly appreciated.

We are now discontinuing self-service for your CSA share in light of the current health crisis. Those of you that are CSA members, please allow a staff member to bring your share or items purchased online to you, when you arrive at the farm.

If you have any questions, please call 410-275-9438 for the quickest response.
 
Thank you for your support of our small family farm, we greatly appreciate it!!
