The original plantation of Pleasant Hills was founded in 1765. Over the years, it has only had a handful of owners, including the Kelley Family who owned the property for roughly 100 yers starting in the mid 1800’s. They operated Pleasant Hills Farms Dairy. Since then, much of the original farm has been developed into the lovely neighborhood in which we live, Spring Meadows in Darnestown, MD, and little has been farmed. Since 2015, we’ve been fortunate to call the original manor home and about 10 acres of the original farm our home.
We’ve been working hard to turn our ivestment into a working farm once again and have decided to keep it’s original name out of respect for it’s rich history, which we hope to preserve and pass on to future generations. Like our farm’s founders, we follow organic farming principles and embrace traditional homesteading.
In 2018, we’re excited to launch Pleasant Hills Farm CSA, offering fresh produce, flowers and eggs, as well as a farm-stay AirBNB. Stay tuned for updates and more information!
