Humane farming allows animals to be able to roam free and engage in natural behaviors, like wallowing, rooting, and foraging. Pigs in particular desire social interaction.

To say Farmer Max goes above and beyond in creating bonds with the Calleva Farm animals would be an understatement. Farming is hard work, but Max finds a way to give attention to all of the critters on the Farm.

Our Growing Green campers get hands on experience with gardening and animal husbandry.

Campers will plant, w**d, fertilize, feed and clean animal areas. They will harvest veggies and fruit fresh from the garden to create and cook their dinner for their Thursday night overnight meal.

Campers will leave the week with a real understanding and love for farming.

Did you know that the word Calleva means "crossing paths?"

Tastes of Calleva celebrates the flavors of Spain. Our team has family connections in Spain's Basque region and Chef Flash loves the food from that area.

Unique ingredients from the Basque country influence our adventurer and inspired Calleva's Basque-style pork chorizo, which will be one of the highlights at Taste of Calleva. Tapas that feature Calleva raised pork, sweet Spanish paprika and a variety of herbs from Farmer Max's garden.

This savory, but not super spicy dish aims to please.

Stories from the Farm
We have golden memories of gardening with our parents & grandparents.
The planting - w**ding - watering routine set the rhythm of our childhood summers, and the flip side of all that work was the satisfaction of eating perfectly ripened produce right there in the garden!

Walking through the family garden on a mid- summer evening was magical & full of rich aromas – the musty scent of the earth, the bright pungent fragrance of ripened tomatoes, and soft perfume wafting from a bouquet of basil.

Chef remembers carrying a salt shaker along as he wandered, selecting tomatoes & cucumbers off their vines & eating them immediately.

That's the inspiration for Taste of Calleva's "Salad in a Jar." Guests will pick up a jar filled with just-picked goodness from Calleva Farm’s summer garden – tomatoes, cucumbers, peppers & lettuces (+ maybe a few green beans) all ready to be shaken up in an herby vinaigrette.

Make your own story and join us for Tastes of Calleva July 29th.

Did you know that when you shop at the Calleva Farm Store you are supporting small businesses throughout the Montgomery County Agricultural Reserve?

We are happy to have a space for local artists, crafts people, students, authors and more to sell their products.

The Sugarland Etho History Project book, I Have Started for Canaan, has had such a successful run of sales they are about to run their 3rd printing. This is unheard of for a small, privately, printed book.

Thank you for supporting our community and the creatives that live here!
