Come for a Visit

The farm is open 7 days a week, from 9 - 5:00 for purchases of meat and eggs from our on-farm store.

We do recommend that you email in advance to make sure we have what you are looking for.  Our inventory varies widely depending on the time of year and we routinely sell out of many cuts of meat. If you have something in particular in mind, email us and we can check to make sure we have what you're looking for.

In addition, on Saturdays and Sundays we attend Farmers' Market and may have very limited egg supplies on hand at the farm.

To discuss purchasing breeding stock, please email to make an appointment for a farm visit. Please understand that this is a working farm and we are often very busy with important projects that really cannot be deferred for unplanned visitors.

Our address is 10720 Dern Road, Emmitsburg, Maryland, 21727. 

A word of warning about MAPQUEST and other online services - our road crosses over a creek and sometimes people will end up on the wrong side (south side) of Tom's Creek, as the online directions services don't always realize that there is NO BRIDGE.  When you turn onto Dern Road, you should see a 7' tall metal rooster with a Whitmore Farm sign pointing the way.
