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.

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.

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.

Sassafras River Beef

Sassafras River Beef (SRB) is owned and operated by Brick House Farm Cecilton, Maryland. Brick House Farm is a 700 acre grain and livestock farm in Cecil County on Maryland’s upper Eastern Shore. The farm produces corn, wheat, soybeans, hay, straw and Angus cattle.

Farm families have been enjoying the goodness of “home grown” food items for generations. Beef, pork, poultry, fruits and vegetables are some of the wholesome farm raised products enjoyed by folks in the country. Recently the availability of “locally grown” food to a larger section of the population has become a reality. SRB has developed a simple process for all our customers to enjoy the taste of locally raised beef!

Rainbow Farm

Asiatic, LA Hybrid, and Oriental Lilies. Available as cut-flowers, in bouquets, or as grown plants ready for transplanting.

St. Bridgid's Farm

Our farm is named after St. Brigid, the patron saint of dairymaids and scholars who was renowned for her compassion and often featured with cows at her feet. She perfectly represents the pairing of Judy, the dairymaid and Bob, the scholar.

When we established St. Brigid’s Farm in 1996, we started with 69 registered Jersey heifers. Our herd has grown to 160 head consisting of milking cows, replacement heifers, steers and veal calves. Every year we sell surplus dairy cows as well as Jersey beef and veal.

The 55 acre farm, located on the scenic eastern shore of Maryland, is planted in permanent pasture, comprised predominantly of perennial rye grass and clover. The seasonally calved herd intensively grazes from April through November.
