Fischer Family Farms

Whenever possible, we use local suppliers.  This not only helps to support local businesses, it also minimizes the environmental impact and added cost of shipping.

Maryland Plants & Supplies is our source for growing medium, containers and fertilizers.  For small quantities of seed and live plants, and high-quality tools, Homestead Gardens is our supplier of choice.  When we require seeds that we can’t find locally, we rely on mail-order from Johnny’s Selected Seeds.

Our supplier for baby chickens this is McMurray Hatchery.  Unfortunately they aren’t local, but this is one of those cases where we haven’t found a local supplier for this part of our farm.

Our chickens seem like they eat constantly, so we spend quite a bit of time at Bowen’s Farm Supply to pick up feed and supplies for our growing flock.

If you have a favorite local supplier that you think we should know about, please send us an email and recommend them.

Preparing for cold weather by winterizing the chicken coops.

Fresh eggs are always available at our self-service farm stand.  Stop by and visit if you are in the neighborhood.

Please note:

We are closed on weekends through 10/23 since the Renaissance Festival shares our driveway, and will resume weekend egg sales on 10/24.
