NEW this week:
Produce Plus, DC’s fresh veggies incentive program, starts this week at the market.
A proper intro to: BELLE PRAIRIE FARM, BIG POOL MD
Our farm is located in the Appalachian Mountains of Washington County, MD, 20 minutes west of Hagerstown. The farm is 162 acres, half pasture, half woodland, and bordered by thousands of acres of forest. Our farm is a diversified family operation that practices sustainable and organic methods.
We produce fruits and vegetables on ~10 acres. On the farm we also raise livestock on pasture including cattle, sheep, goats, and some rabbits, and poultry.
Our goal is to regenerate the land by utilizing multi species rotational grazing techniques, working with nature rather than against it, permaculture principles, promotion of biodiversity, soil building, and minimalizing external inputs. We are Certified Naturally Grown.
