On December 23, 2015, we purchased our 60-acre farm. This would not have been possible without contributions from our Founding Members. Their three and/or five-year pledges to our farm and our CSA program helped cover our down payment, purchase our farm and equip it with wells, tractors, one acre of brambles and deer fencing.
This much larger property has permitted us to scale up our production and provide even more of our own produce to our ever-expanding customer base. We are excited to explore new opportunities for our farm and begin serving customers in Howard County, Maryland.
Our small, but fantastic crew is an integral part in making Norman’s Farm Market a major fresh and local produce supplier. Here are just a few of the items we grow that you can fill your basket with as a CSA subscriber or purchase at one of our local stands:
How We Grow on Our Farm
Norman’s Farm uses integrated pest management, (IPM) to provide you the highest quality and safest food possible. We are not an “organic” farm, although we employ many organic methods. Our crops are protected from insect and fungus problems by using primarily organically approved spray materials.
We cannot claim to be organic, partly because some of the fertilizers, applied through the irrigation system, are not available in “organic form.” We try to minimize the need for spraying by selecting varieties with the highest disease resistance and monitoring our fields.
We apply pesticides only when necessary. It has always been our policy to use organic options whenever possible and are always looking to adopt new and safer practices.
Our aim is to provide you with the best quality and safest food that we can possibly produce.
What our Customers Say
