Interaction with guests
We are available when needed.
Beautiful and safe, with friendly neighbors.
There is no public transportation, but you can order cabs - pricey though. You can take the train to Frederick or Brunswick from Washington D.C. and then take a cab to the farm.
No smoking inside the house. If you smoke outside of the house you must pick up the butts and throw them in the trash. We are an organic farm practicing environmental stewardship. We have tasty filtered well water so we prefer that folks do not bring plastic water bottles to the house. Noise levels must be low after 10:00 p.m. on weekends and 9:00 p.m. on weekdays. Basically, we ask that people respect the land, the house and its contents, and the neighbors.
Fox Haven Organic Farm & Learning Center is my passion. I am happiest when touring young and older folks around the farm, teaching about where our food comes from, healthy farming and gardening that leads to healthy soil, waterways, humans, and critters. Forests are my playgrounds. Our young adult children help and that is the best! Frederick, MD is a favorite place on this planet to eat, walk, talk with shop owners and artists, and attend Quaker Meeting for Worship. This precious part of Maryland is a wonderful place to visit and live.
