We raise a wide variety of organic vegetables and strive to provide our food to people of all income levels. Our vegetables are for sale to the public through our community supported agriculture (CSA) program.
Roughly 20 acres of the 283-acre regenerative farm is dedicated to our vegetable operation and with harvesting well underway we need volunteers to help plant, weed, and harvest. Check our list of upcoming volunteer openings or send an e-mail to MDrestoration@cbf.org.
For 20 years the Chesapeake Bay Foundation's Clagett Farm has provided free and reduced-price, fresh produce to people living in poverty and near-poverty in Washington, D.C. The project, a collaboration with Capital Area Food Bank, blends local, sustainable organic agriculture with social justice. CBF calls the program, "From the Ground Up."
Our grass-fed beef and lamb are for sale to the public in the spring and fall. Grass-fed meats are delicious and healthy—no GMO's, no antibiotics, no hormones—and they have a healthy balance of Omega 3 to Omega 6 fatty acids, are high in conjugated linoleic acids and vitamins, and low in saturated fats. Pasture-raised meats are also good for the environment and a great way to strengthen the local economy. Send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org to be added to our mailing list.
Native Tree Nursery
Our potted trees are planted throughout the Chesapeake Bay watershed as a buffer against erosion. We will have 7,500 native trees and shrubs that need to be potted this year. These will be nurtured in the nursery for one or two years before they are planted in their forever homes.
Christmas Trees and Wreaths
We sell wreaths and you-cut Christmas trees from Thanksgiving through December. Trees of all sizes are $50. Each year we replace cut trees with new ones, so your purchase keeps some of our most vulnerable hillsides from erosion and provides habitat for birds and insects during the summer. For more information, call 301-627-4662.
Our farm manager, Michael Heller, spearheads the Maryland Grazers Network, which helps farmers transition from corn-fed to grass-fed livestock.
Thanks to a grant from the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS), the new Mountains-to-Bay Grazing Alliance is providing farmers with information, resources, and assistance to expand livestock grazing efforts in the Chesapeake Bay watershed.
