About marygold2014

From my pictures you can guess I live on a farm. We raise vegetables which we sell off the farm, through our Fields to Meals (FTM), at our farm stand and at a produce auction. I am in charge of growing flowers, herbs and packaging our produce.

Looking for Local Produce?

One source for buying locally produced food is to join the Lock Farm’s Fields to Meals. With the Fields to Meals you not only get the assurance of knowing that you are providing your family and yourself with fresh, wholesome food but you get the satisfaction of knowing that you are helping to keep an area produce farm in production.

Tired of Bar Code Food???

Winter has been filled with overcast days and bar code food. It is a great time to reflect and appreciate the colors and flavors of other seasons. It is also the time to prepare for the fresh foods of spring and summer.

The Lock Farm Is Getting Ready for Spring

Over the past months Farmer, with a little help, has filled the new greenhouse to the max with seedlings just waiting for the warm days of spring to go out into the field. These vegetables will be available to YOU through the Lock Farm FIELDS TO MEALS, the Thursday Market (in Frederick, MD) and, of course at the Lock Farm on Ritner Highway in Shippensburg.
