Address for GPS purposes but there is no mailbox: 2225 Park Mills Rd, Adamstown, MD.
Take 270 to Rte 80 West, go two miles, take a left on Park Mills Road, go about three miles, pass Mt Ephraim Rd and Bear Branch Road. Watch on your left side–you will cross over Bennett Creek, pass a house, then immediately look for our new farm lane with a big “House in the Woods” billboard on sale day.
Gone too far if you get to Lilypons Road. Drive up the lane and follow signs for parking.

Our tomato plants are now also available at The Common Market (www.commonmarket.com).
We may have more plants available later in May as well.
