Our farm is nestled on historic property in Reisterstown, Maryland.  There are natural streams and springs running throughout our 80 acres that feed into the Liberty Reservoir.  It is important to us to preserve these natural water sources and the water quality on our property.   We voluntarily participated with the Maryland Department of Agriculture’s Water Quality Program which has enabled us to protect our water quality while providing our livestock with fresh natural spring water.   We installed stream crossings for livestock and also limited their accessibility  by fencing off 20,000 linear feet of stream banks.   We also built gravity watering systems which provide our animals with fresh spring water that flows freely from the streams on the farm.
