Our farm has been in the family since the 1660ís when the Middleton family came over from England. This farm has been split up over time as generations have grown up and settled down on the farm.  Today, the farm encompasses some 300-acres.  

Native Americans often passed through our farm, as can be seen from the many Indian head arrows and stones found on the farm. This little part of the world is full of history and intrigue. A visit to our farm is a lovely journey into the past.

Our Family

We began opening our farm to school groups in the early 1980's; however, had to stop after five years due to family needs. The farm was originally utilized for tobacco growing.  Tobacco was a full time job beginning in the Spring with planting the seeds through winter when it was time to strip and pack it.  In 2000, the State of Maryland offered tobacco farmers with a buy-out option.  Essentially, farmers were paid a percentage of what they made in tobacco for agreeing to no longer raise it.  Needless to say, our family decided to accept the buy-out agreement.

In 2005, after much discussion and work on enhancing the barns, we once again opened the farm to school groups and the community for the month of October.  We thought it was a great way for our three children, Kelly, Brooke and Bret, to work together, watch things grow and learn how to manage a business from beginning to end. Each of the kids has developed his/her own special expertise in the business - we're very proud of them. We farm for a living, raising pumpkins, squash, hay and beef cattle, but we try to make our home a special place for you to share each October.

In the next year or so, we hope to open the farm to the community in the Spring and Summer.  We are researching berry plants and look forward to offering you and your family pick-your-own blueberries, strawberries, blackberries and raspberries.  Please stay tuned!

Thank you.

The Middleton Family
