CSA - community supported (shared) agriculture

Calliope Organic Farm

Lisa Garfield & Patrick Buckingham

Calliope Farm is a small-scale family operated farm on the Eastern Shore of Maryland with 2-3 acres of organically grown fruits, vegetables, and sprouts. We primarily grow open pollinated, heirloom, and regional varieties as well as some well-adapted ethnic and exotic varieties, all chosen for qualities of flavor and nutrition, as well as for the ability to save to our own seed. Our approach to farming is based on the desire to sustain the land that sustains us. We do this by caring for and improving the soil with the use of cover crops, mineral amendments and compost. We are also home to a small flock of laying hens, two horses, 4 barn-cats, and will soon be joined by two Nubian dairy goats.
We believe passionately in the original ideals and philosophies of organic farming, and so are NOT certified organic by the USDA, but have chosen to be Certified Naturally Grown, a grassroots alternative that is truer to the needs of small, diversified, direct-market farms. such as our own.

The Good Farm

Organic growing is everything to me.

I started my journey with organic growing four years ago. It is a full-time passion, hobby, exercise, lifestyle, mindset; and part time job. My produce has been purchased by restaurants, a health food store, traded to restaurants, used as landscape and interior decoration, bartered to a commercial fisherman for seafood, given to friends, and it feeds my ducks and chickens on occasion.
