Mary’s Land Farm is located in Ellicott City, MD. We sell beef, lamb, pork, chicken, duck eggs and chicken eggs and offer farm tours.
After meetings with Joel Salatin and listening to lectures at PASA and the Weston A Price foundation, we realized that the right use of our land was raising superior breeds of livestock on pasture built on high-quality soils. We used the expertise of the Savory Institute and the Permaculture Research Institute to improve our forages and soils.
Beef: We raise Devon cattle on grass only. Devon cattle were left out of the feedlot fad that has had a strangle hold on the beef industry since World War II. Devons have long been bred to produce succulent flavorful beef from a grass diet.
Pork: Our heritage pigs are raised in the 40 acres of woods around the property. This healthy environment provides better forage for healthier meat with better flavor.
Lamb: Our Katahdin sheep are naturally resistant to common maladies and their meat has a great reputation. The sheep consume the highest quality grass and hay and produce the highest quality meat.
Duck Eggs: Our Sweet Emily ducks are natural high-production layers. They have a gated pasture and they come into the laying house to lay eggs in nesting boxes. We do not clean the eggs to avoid wiping off the natural protection the ducks leave on the egg when they lay.
Chicken Eggs: Our chickens are always out in the pasture and they lay in special nesting boxes. They roost in chicken tractors we provide for them which we move around the pasture.
