Garden Gate Farm
Garden Gate Farm, owned by Linda and Dave, began in 2005, when we moved to this historic four-acre property hoping to grow family as well as enough delicious food to support the four generations that abide there. We had a terrific 2010 season, which launched Truffula Seed Produce, a venture at Garden Gate Farm run by our daughter Josie and her partner Shawn. This is not only an amazingly creative endeavor, but is also a fulfillment of our commitment to family, friends, and our community. We're already gearing up for an amazing 2011 season.
Farm Fresh Eggs
We sell beautiful Grade AA Large farm fresh eggs. Our free-range, heritage breed hens are naturally raised. Our eggs are registered and approved by the Maryland Department of Agriculture. Eggs are $4/doz when picked up at the farm; $5/doz when delivery can be arranged. Contact Linda at email@example.com or 410.635.3031 for more information. To receive eggs regularly during the 2011 season, consider an egg share through the Truffula Seed Produce CSA program. 2011 CSA EGG SHARES ARE SOLD OUT!
Truffula Seed Produce
The name Truffula Seed was inspired by one of Josie and Shawn's favorite stories by Dr. Seuss: The Lorax.
Through Truffula Seed Produce, Josie and Shawn grow fresh food with no pesticides, herbicides, or synthetic fertilizers. They envision a local food system which is environmentally sustainable and that builds community.
Check out what they do and what they sell and take a peek at what's new on the farm.
