A little history! In 1948, when Dad graduated high school, he and my grandparents built a dairy barn and started milking cows. Prior to that, they raised acres and acres of tomatoes. The first milk that left the farm was in milk cans that were transported to a loading dock of the Ma & Pa Railroad, ultimately to be transported to the dairy plant in Baltimore. Fast forward 68 years and 6 generations and we are still in the business. We have 200 head of of dairy and beef cattle and farm 200 acres of crops. Along the way, we have had several fair champions and have won many awards for milk quality and production. Today we have family laborers from 28 to 88 years old. Through it all we have adapted new practices and accepted new technology as it has evolved, but still focused on the basics of being stewards of the land and caregivers of the animals. It is both a challenge and a pleasure to be an operating farm here in Harford County. Our love of agriculture and out desire to provide quality products to our customers inspire us to forge ahead every day, caring for our animals and land.  We enjoy visiting with our customers and sharing our Ag story.
