From seed to sapling

"Agriculture is our wisest pursuit, because it will in the end contribute most to real wealth, good morals, and happiness."

- Thomas Jefferson (1787)

Calleva Farm

The farm has given us roots. Our pursuit into the outdoors has led Calleva out from the wilderness and into the fields near Poolesville Maryland. Our slice of heaven lies on 165 acres in Montgomery County's Ag Reserve.  This is the place where we took off our shoes, listened to the soil beneath our feet, and planted our future. 

Farm Map

We till. This is a working farm with a wide variety of vegetables, grains, fruits, meats, and way too many weeds!  Not only are we growing food for our immediate human and animal community, but for sale at local markets and special events. 

We tell. Not only do we grow plants and animals, but we grow kids! Education is a big part of the Farm, and programming options are available for any age.  Every aspect of the farm that is being worked, is also being taught. 

We ride. The Farm is home to many animals including horses. With fields, stables, arenas, cross-country fields, and wooded trails; the farm offers unequalled facilities and education for folks interested in our equine friends. 

And we eat!  The Calleva family has been quietly working the land for many years and we are excited to share with you what is truely a special place. We are opening our gates to the greater community to come feast, learn, and celebrate the land that has given us so much with Dirty Dinners - a unique dining experience. Sharing the fruits of our labors is an added bonus, and we hope you make it out to one or all of our events.
