Resource List

We had the pleasure of being a host farm for the 2023 Small Farms Tour put on by UMES (University of Maryland Eastern Shore Extension) and NC A&T. We welcomed ~35 small farmers from the eastern shore to Sweet Shrub Farm. Unfortunately, we were the last farm on the tour and our time was cut short, but we made the best of it! 😉 I could’ve talked a whole lot more! ha!

There’s just something about sharing a common interest and being able to chat with other small farmers!
