At Clagett Farm, our ultimate goal is to use farming methods that are truly sustainable—both economically and environmentally. We find plenty of ways to use this hilly property for both commercial and educational purposes, including the following:
Community Supported Agriculture (CSA)
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. Through our collaboration with the Capital Area Food Bank, we also donate approximately 30,000 pounds of produce each year to people in need.
Native Tree Nursery
Our grass-fed beef is for sale to the public biannually as a "split half." Send an e-mail to [email protected] to be alerted when it goes on sale.
Christmas Trees and Wreaths
We sell wreaths and you-cut Christmas trees between between Thanksgiving and December. Trees of all sizes are all $40. Each year we replace cut trees with new ones, so your purchase keeps some of our most vulnerable hillsides from erosion, and gives habitat to birds and insects during the summer. For more information, call 301-646-0281.
Educational Field Programs
Clagett Farm is one site among many for the Chesapeake Bay Foundation's award-winning field trips for students, teachers, and adults. Visit cbf.org/education for more information, or send an e-mail to [email protected].
Maryland Grazers Network
Our farm manager, Michael Heller, spearheads the Maryland Grazers Network, which helps farmers transition from corn-fed to grass-fed livestock.
