Education is Our Passion!
Our passion is programs that educate children on the intersection of farming and the environment in a fun, informal hands-on atmosphere that supplements the classroom curriculum.Mary’s Land Farm is a 160 acre working farm located in Howard County three miles from the intersection of Route 108 and Route 32. The farm is based on a permaculture method of farming which is healthy for the environment, employees and visitors. Most importantly, we produce healthy, organic produce and meat products.
On the farm we raise layer chickens, layer ducks, meat chickens (broilers), Katahdin sheep, Red Devon beef, ponies, and rare and shy unicorns.
We have installed three miles of swales and berms to keep rainwater on the property and to avoid runoff into our stream, which flows into the Patuxent.
We offer field trips to schools, daycare programs, after school programs, scout groups, homeschoolers, and families up and down the East Coast.
Our educational programs are catered to the requirements of the age group visiting the farm. We look forward to aiding what’s taught in the classroom and can build a custom field trip to compliment your curriculum. With each field trip, we provide material that can be used in the classroom before or after the trip.
