This was an amazing experience in that it brought us back to how food should be grown and what it should taste like. We are now having their eggs and bacon for breakfast. The eggs have a firmer consistency and tastes richer. Will try the butter soon. Cheeses are up there with the best.

Great communications prior to visiting the farm. The date I requested was immediately granted. First contact with the owner too place at the farm store. Lots of information on how to live healthy is visible in the store...free and to purchase. My spouse and I purchase and consume organics. We wanted to know what information we could glean for a healthier life. The tour began in the barn where history of the farm was shared, and questions were encouraged. One hour of walking the grounds and talking about the care of the animals. Once the walking tour ended ...we met back at the barn for a cheese tasting. Everyone on the tour appear to enjoy the tasting. Our time at the farm ended by making purchases in the farm store with the $10.00 gift card we received when we checked in. WoW! I did pass on the information. Two individuals I shared with will be visiting the farm this Saturday. Thank you!

About P. A. Bowen Farmstead

All of the Jersey cows at P. A. Bowen Farmstead are named after famed opera characters and singers. So it shouldn't come as a surprise that they're also treated like stars: They're milked each morning and then transferred to a wide-open, protected pasture each day. For owners Geoffrey Morell and Sally Fallon Morell, founding a farm was the next step after creating a nonprofit nutrition-education foundation—and their focus on raising healthy animals and food is evident across each of the property's 95 rolling acres.

Here, they care for a menagerie of livestock using rotational grazing techniques and modern farm technology—eschewing chemicals in favor of organic, bio-dynamic plant and animal care. Pigs root in the nearby forest, hens roam freely or settle into heated tractors in colder weather, and the bull sleeps at the foot of the owners' bed each night.

The farm's real specialty, though, is its dairy processing facility—regulated by the Maryland Department of Health and Mental Hygiene—which churns out several raw artisan cheeses. Saturday walking tours across the farm unveil the inner workings of the cheese-making process. Further revealing their processes, their regular classes educate guests on topics ranging from processing chickens to animal husbandry.
