Don’t Miss…Grazers’ Delight: Clean Streams, Profitable Livestock at Liberty Delight
Join us at Liberty Delight Farms to learn about stream fencing and water quality initiatives.
Come tour farmer Shane Hughes’ all-natural meat and egg production operation that maintains viability while protecting Maryland waterways. In the fall of 2015 the Maryland Department of Agriculture’s Water Quality Program helped Shane to fence off his stream, and to build stream crossings and gravity flow watering facilities. Learn how to implement similar practices on your farm without breaking the bank. We’ll also see other innovative enterprises at Liberty Delight such as rabbit production and solar energy.
Liberty Delight Farms has gone “GREEN” hats off to Sunnyside Solar Energy, LLC for installing a 31 kilowatt Solar Photovoltaic system here on the farm. Our fossil fuel energy use has been cut by 90%. Great Job Rich, Suzanne and Andy of Sunnyside Solar and Schemm Electric Company, Inc. for a job well done! Folks these guys are true professionals.
Liberty Delight Farms is happy to say that we are continuing our commitment to perpetuating a healthy planet by installing solar panels that will provide all of the electricity that we will need to power the farm. Sustainability is what it’s all about. Soon the entire roof of this barn will be covered with solar panels. Here’s to a bright future.
In the summer and fall of 2015 Liberty Delight Farms voluntarily participated in the Maryland Department of Agriculture’s Water Quality Program. This program helps to protect the water quality in Maryland. Under this program we fenced off over 20,000 linear feet of stream banks, installed a 24’ x 40’ stream crossing and built two gravity flow watering facilities. The fencing off of streams prevents our livestock from free will crossing of stream banks. The gravity flow watering facilities still provides our livestock to drink the fresh natural spring water that free flows through our farm. Water is diverted from the steams and springs on the farm to the watering facility and overflows back to the streams.
We have also started to go 100% green. We are currently working on installing solar panels that will use the sun’s energy to fulfill the electricity needs of our operation. STAY TUNED for pictures and updates on the solar project.

Reviews & Testimonials
“Had the absolute most tender steak a Woodberry Kitchen and they said they get their meat from you. We will be customers for life now not only for the delicious meats but for the way you treat your animals!”

“The products from Liberty Delight Farms taste great and I feel good knowing that the animals led good lives. It’s wonderful in this day to be able to know your farmer and understand where your food comes from. Highly recommended.”

“The quality of food and service at the Woodberry Kitchen is as good as it gets in Baltimore. It’s definitely an expensive option, but that can be limited by avoiding the Cocktail and Supper menus. As alternatives, stick to beer and try the Flatbreads menu, which is delicious and much less expensive. Whether you go for a more moderately priced meal or their finest, you’re very likely to enjoy it. If you’re all in, the Liberty Delight Tavern Steak is my recommendation.”

yelp Review of Woodberry Kitchen mentioning the Liberty delight Tavern Steak-“DECOR: The restaurant has a very primitive decor as if there was a mill or a factory there which has been converted into a restaurant now. This place has 2 levels (a loft area) along with an outdoor seating and wait area. The outdoor seating area is very romantic with candles put up there. Even the wait area is very cozy and has a fire place. The kitchen is open and you can practically see your food being cooked! The ambience is very lively.
FOOD: We ordered the Wood Roasted Late Spring Vegetables, Tilghman Island Crab Cake, Rettland Farms Chicken & Biscuit and Liberty Delight Tavern Steak (medium rare)! The food was delicious.
SERVICE: We went on a Friday and had reservation at 9:30 pm. We reached n hour early but didn’t expect the crowd to be so much. The girl at the reception told us that many tables are getting empty and she would make us sit in 10-15 minutes. She asked us to either stand nearby or sit at the waiting area. We went to waiting area. You can order light snacks and drinks there. We were seated at 9:45 pm. The long wait was the most annoying part of our visit. I suggest you come here at the time of your reservation and not earlier. The food was served within 30-40 minutes from the time ordered.”
