MEET YOUR FARMERS

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.

Robert Miller

Nice Farms Creamery, LLC is located on the 201 acre Miller and Tanner Dairy Farm in American Corner, Maryland. This Creamery is owned and operated by Bob Miller. The dairy farm has been in operation in Caroline County since 1989 when Bob's parents, Robert R. Miller and Chase Tanner relocated their dairy cows from New Jersey. For 20 years, the herd has been pastured on 118 acres.

These cows, Holsteins and Holstein crosses, produce high quality, all natural milk for the Creamery's yogurt and Cream-line milk products produced on site. Browse our website to learn more about the Creamery's Products, Community Supported Agriculture on the Eastern Shore, benefits of milk from pastured cows, and more about one of the few remaining small, family operated dairies left on Maryland's Eastern Shore.

Cutfresh Organics, LLC

Aaron Cooper

At our farm we deliver a weekly supply of vegetables directly to the customer's door. These are either picked during the growing season and stored, or picked fresh for delivery.

We're somewhat different from other "CSA" type farms because we offer a consistent supply of typical cooking and salad vegetables all year long --- not just during the warmer 6 months of the year. In addition, we offer the familiar warm season "Produce Stand" crops during their optimum growing seasons.

Provident Organic Farm

Jay Martin

Provident Organic Farm has been managed organically by Jay Martin for 26 years.

Provident grows a large selection of seasonal vegetables year round utilizing season extension tools and techniques including passive solar greenhouses for winter production.

Longridge Gardens

Terry Jordan

Fifer Orchards

Michael Fennemore

In 1919, a Virginia farmer named Charles F. Fifer fell in love with the land of central Delaware. Upon discovering the moderate
I climate and hearty soil of this agriculturally rich region, he bought 3 farms - one near Milford, one near Rising Sun, and one a 1/2 mile west of Wyoming - and moved his family to a new home and a new life. Soon, he was growing apples, peaches, pears, and grapes. These were shipped to faraway points from the Wyoming train station.

Fischers' Farm

Ann & Joe Fischer

Joe and Ann Fischer moved to Dover in the winter of 2000 to open Fischers' Farm after spending about 30 years raising their 4 children. They moved from Tillson NY in the Hudson Valley, where they had spent the previous 20 years. Although it is always difficult to move, they were excited to settle in Dover to start a new stage of their lives. Joe was born and raised in Maryland, so he was particularly pleased to return to the area. The first Christmas trees were planted in that same year while Joe and Ann sold fruit, jams, jellies, and more at various farmers' markets.
