George Zahradka (Farmer)

My name is George Zahradka III. I was raised and still live on my family farm in Middle River Md. With the help of my family and friends, I farm this land year after year. I have a love for the land that won't desist and believe in providing everyone with the most deliberately, well cared for produce possible. I am the only farmer that works this farm and I personally see to all aspects of my business. Libby and I were married in 2013 :)

Libby Longendorf (Farm Manager & Farmer's Wife )

Hi, my name is Libby. I was raised in the suburbs... far from any farm. I am a certified and Licensed Massage Therapist, so health and wellness are high on my list of priorities. I began working on the farm in 2007 and was hooked right away. I spearheaded the CSA program in 2009 and the idea immediately took off with our farm. It has been so much fun getting to know others that are so completely devoted to eating fresh, clean and local. This year we have started canning our Heirloom tomatoes and testing out some delicious recipes in order to improve our sustainability and reduce waste. I'm very excited about what the future holds for us!

*George and I were married in 2013 :)

Jeff Markley (Farm Staff)

My name is Jeff. I was born and raised on this family farm. I'm a nephew to the farmer and have been working on the farm since I was just a little kid. As I have grown the realization of the importance of what we do has also been fostered. Our goal as a family is to maintain the land that we hold so dear and to continue the farming tradition with future generations. I work mainly with restaurants now. Wholesale is an important part of our business. Not only does it generate a steady income but it also puts our produce out there! You can see are name on some of the FINEST restaurants in Maryland!!!

Judy Jurgenson (Farm Stand Manager)

My Name is Judy :)

I am Allisons mom and have been working the stand for over a year now. I love to work with people and really enjoy introducing them to the fresh and high quality produce coming right out of the farm fields! I am always willing to offer suggestions and recipes if there is a veggie that is new to a customer. Pride in my job and putting a smile on a customers face are my top priorities :)
