Southern Maryland has a wealth of amazing local growers of everything from produce and meats to beer and wine, honey, and flowers – and so much more. Each month we want to showcase one of these folks. And this month we’re excited to introduce Sassafras Farm. Located in Huntingtown and Dunkirk, Maryland, Sassafras Farm got its name from the ever-popular Sassafras tree and is based on 226 acres between both locations. The operation was started in 1962 with a love of the outdoors and has since grown into what it is today! In 2006, Sassafras Farm began buying and breeding cattle and in 2010 was a fully registered Angus herd. A family-owned and operated business, Sassafras Farm focuses on the superior genetics when breeding through artificial insemination and embryo transfer. They take pride in being a 100% natural raised beef operation where our cattle do not receive growth hormones or antibiotics.
