Good Hope Farmstead
We are a family run farm in beautiful Frederick County MD.
We supply our local communities with flavorful, grass-fed and non-gmo meats that are raised using environmentally friendly farming practices.
When my parents bought the farm, we never started out with the intention of growing it beyond the small homestead they envisioned. All we wanted was to raise foods in a manner that was healthy for the animals, the environment, and for our family. But life has a funny way of guiding you to places you never dreamed. In those first couple years, we enjoyed farming so much and saw a need for foods raised in an environmentally friendly manner that we expanded just enough to supply ourselves and a local farmers market.
After that, we were hooked. We loved working on the land, we loved building relationships with our customers and we loved being able to do all that together as a family. From that point we seriously considered this as a viable way to live.
Ok, maybe we've looked back a couple times. There have definitely been some challenges and farming is not easy. But we feel very lucky that everyone in the family has jumped into this venture with both feet. My brother moved to the farm 4 years ago and I moved here this past year.
Here on the farmstead we raise Katahdin sheep, Hereford cattle, pigs, turkeys, chickens, ducks and honeybees.
