The former United States Naval Academy Dairy Farm in Gambrills, MD, is now MD Sunrise Farm, LLC, operating under the authority of the Anne Arundel County Dept. of Recreation and Parks. A family operated, 857 acre certified organic farm, this is the largest parcel of certified organic land in the state. Building upon a rich agricultural tradition, MD Sunrise offers an agricultural oasis to its suburban neighbors. The farm is fully engaged in production agriculture using organic protocols to maintain a healthy environment for people, food, and animals near major population centers. This working landscape provides a significant air and water filter, noise buffer and tranquil atmosphere, acting as respite from the pervasive hardscape of the surrounding area, while producing food and feed. We grow market vegetables for local consumption, operate a farm based CSA, raise organic beef and dairy replacement heifers, sell organic hay, corn and soybeans, and host seasonal farm events including school and group tours. The public is also invited to rent selected buildings. A treasured part of local history, the farm produced milk for the midshipmen at the Naval Academy from 1917 to 1998, assuring a safe, plentiful supply, and establishing a reputation for quality, cleanliness and adoption of modern agricultural practices.
