Deep Roots Farm is a regenerative ''O'', women owned and operated farm located in Brandywine and Upper Marlboro, MD. We grow vegetables, herbs, fruit, and flowers, and raise chickens on 50 acres for our community.
Regenerative "O" describes a holistic approach to farming that encourages continuous innovation and improvement of environmental, social, and economic measures.
“The number one priority in regenerative ''O'' agriculture is soil health. Soil health is intrinsically linked to the total health of our food system. Soil health affects everything from plant health to human well being and the future of our planet. Regenerative prioritizes soil health while simultaneously encompassing high standards for animal welfare and worker fairness. The idea is to create farm systems that work in harmony with nature to improve the quality of life for every creature involved”
What's to Come
We have big plans for the future of the farm! We plan to incorporate turkeys and ducks for Thanksgiving, hogs and cows into our CSA, and an orchard growing berries, figs, apples, plums, and peaches.
