Historical info

Biscoe Gray Heritage Farm Mission

The Biscoe Gray Heritage Farm, a site rich in natural and cultural resources, is a living laboratory to explore, understand, and experience Calvert County agricultural practices and lifestyles throughout its history--from Native American transitory settlement, small scale colonial farming, 19th c. era agriculture, 20th c. tobacco farming to contemporary, pioneering community supported agricultural and sustainable farming efforts. Through archaeological preservation, interpretive site development and programming, and hands-on educational opportunities, the Farm targets children and youths but also includes activities and experiences for those of all ages and physical abilities.

The landscape contains a topographic range from cultivated upland ridge, wooded slopes, a variety of marsh gradients, to open water creek, marking it as a unique facility to the Chesapeake Bay watershed’s network of sites that support K-12 education, public outdoor recreation opportunities, heritage appreciation, and tourism.

By offering lessons in how citizens have lived with the land throughout history, the Biscoe Gray Heritage Farm offers insight into how they can continue and improve good stewardship practices that will sustain the quality of life of Calvert County and the larger ecosystems of which it is a part. By providing unique and exciting programs and facilities within a beautiful landscape, the Biscoe Gray Heritage Farm engages visitors in everyday experiences that transcend the commonplace.
