Holiday Update

Easton Farmers Market officially ended their season last week. In spite of very colds temps, the turnout was good. We are willing to meet up with special orders throughout the winter. We will be back in the spring most likely every Saturday.

Kent Island at Christ Church has been a fantastic change of venue.  Not only is it toasty warm but we have met so many new people.  We will remain there on Thursdays from 3:30 - 6:30. We will be on break next week (12-29) but will be back the following week.

Our inventory is dwindling some.  We have a decent supply of of the following: Ground beef, pork, and veal. Sausage, bacon and scrapple. Steaks - Delmonico, T-Bone, Porterhouse and Sirloin. Chuck roasts and chuck steaks. Pastured, Rose Veal Roasts and steaks. Chicken and a few small Turkeys.  We are out of pork roasts and will most likely sell out of chops today.

We will replenish our stock in March.

We have heritage pigs for the season.  If you are intersted in reserving a whole or half we are taking deposits.  We have had great interest.  Buying the whole pig is the most economical way to go.  Consider splitting it with family or friends. Steers will be available whole or half as well.

We will be working over the winter to establish an onsite farm store.  More info to come.

Stay tuned, lots of changes to come at the farm.  We are very excited and looking forward to the New Year.

Happy Holidays,

The Wagner's

Where Have We Been?

I know, I am a terrible blogger. I promised myself I'd post weekly, HA!  But seriously, who has the time?  Hopefully I will get better or pass this job onto my teenage son.

So, what's new?

Three little pigs went to processing last week, actually they were huge.  I tried to change things up a bit.  We will have canadian bacon, smoked chops, half hams, breakfast sausage(maple).  As usual bacon, loose sausage, roasts, chops, scrapple. You will have to hold on a bit longer for Italian link as whole hog sausage will be a couple of more weeks.

Turkeys are doing well, the broad breasted bronze are getting big and the broad breasted white just joined them in the turkey house/pen.  They are getting used to each other as the white are smaller.  We are trying to get them used to coming and going outside on their own.  Not an easy task as the grounds are saturated.  More are venturing out and today most spent the day outside.

We have a pup on the farm that the kids found in the woods, he is working out to be quite the guard dog for the turkeys.

Our fields are being seeded and cut any day now, finally...

Market Updates - Druid Hill is ending October 5th. We are no longer in Arbutus. Easton continues into December on Saturdays and Thursdays beginning October 6th we will be at Kent Island on Rte 8 3:30-6:30.

Feel free to email with any pre-orders to markets at

Thanks everyone for your support and encouragement.

Wow!  Is it hot?  It has been a bear doing chores on the farm.  If the heat doesn't get you the insects definately will.  The animals are hanging in there.  The angus hang in the shade of the pole barn during the day and venture out to the grass in the early morn or late evening.  The pigs are catching up on their beauty rest in their cool wallow.  The Guernsey steer don't seem to mind the heat but are much more docile these days.  But, the poor poults are hot as heck in the brooding house!  They still do not have all their feathers so it isn't quite time to put them out.  We have fans going and mist them every hour or so and this seems to help.  As soon as this heatwave breaks it should be time to put them out to pasture.  The turkeys seem to do fine in the heat, they are a week younger. However, we have lost a few seems to be a snake getting in.  We did our best to close up any holes and are hoping the remainder are safe and sound.  Keep cool, this has to pass soon...

Market Updates

My apologies for the lack of updates.  To say I have been busy would be a gross understatement.  I did want to give a brief updates of the markets.

Druid Hill - Wednesdays from 3:30 - 7:30 pm, I just love this market and look forward to it each week.  Everyone has been so friendly and hospitable and the community so welcoming.  My son enjoys educating the youth on agriculture and we love watching the reaction to the animals!  Looking forward to the concert tomorrow...

Arbutus - Thursdays from 2-6 pm, Another new market striving to build momentum. Visit us this week as I believe we will not be there next week due to the carnival.  Great people, great vendors, come on out...

Easton - Every other Saturday 8 - 1 pm, We first joined this market last Saturday, July 2nd.  I wasn't sure what to expect as I have never been but I was more than pleased.  Again, great people who asked lots of questions and you know I love to talk about the farm.  Welcoming vendors, I was fortunate to snuggle in between a fantastic sauce company and some rockin organic coffee/smoothie guys.  Not knowing what to expect I was a bit unprepared and ran out of several items and will do my best next time not to let that happen.

This week we will be bringing to market beef, pork, chicken, eggs and rose veal.  My son has been busy in the kitchen all evening making goat milk fudge.  Not sure of the outcome but it sure smelled good!  If all goes well he hopes to bring some along.

On the farm, we've been busy lots of work to still bedone on the houses, fences, pastures,etc.  Last week baby chicks arrived and we are expecting the first batch of turkeys tomorrow. We have been trying to work out plans to have some family events this summer, we will keep you posted.

Getting Started


We are a small, first generation, sustainable family farm in Kent County, Maryland.  We strive to produce quality, all-natural food for our family and yours!  We believe all animals should be raised in the most natural and stress-free enviroment as possible.  Currently, we are working in the USDA's transitional organic program.  Our first step is converting conventional field to organic hay.  We use organic methods to grow our vegetables and herbs.  We want only the best for our families and yours!

Come visit us at the Arbutus Farmers Market on Thursdays beginning June 9th from 2pm-6pm and at the Druid Hill Park Farmers Market on Wednesdays beginning June 1st from 4pm-7pm.

Call to see if we have scheduled drop-offs in your neighborhood.  Currently, we have locations in Pasadena and Glen Burnie.

At this time we have broiler chickens, whole hog italian and loose sausage and all-natural beef.  We do have a limited amount of fresh eggs. We are working with other local farmers to bring additional products to our drop off sites.

We hope to establish on farm sales times and family events in the near future.

Hope to see you soon,
