Thorne Farm – Greg & Kris Thorne
Located on 25 acres, just outside of Westminster, Maryland, our small handspinners flock of long wool sheep produces both fiber and meat, allowing us to sell yarn from our own flock, spinning fibers, sheepskins and freezer lamb.
Our crossbred ewes are predominantly Romney and Leicester Longwool, both white and natural colored.
We are also passionate about local produce, and grow vegetables, flowers and herbs in our market garden. All of our vegetables are grown without the use of chemical fertilizers, herbicides, or fungicides. We do not use any genetically modified seeds.
In the spring and early summer, we sell tomato, pepper, eggplant, and herb plants from our greenhouse, many are heirloom varieties. All of our plants are started from untreated seeds. They are grown in an organic, compost-based potting mix and are fertilized with organic fertilizers & kelp.
We also sell brown eggs from our flock of free range laying hens.
All of our products are available each week at the Downtown Westminster Farmers Market, Saturday mornings from 8:00 am to noon. Address: Railraod Ave. (MD Rt. 27) & Emerald Hill Lane, Westminster, MD 21157.
