Pick Your Own Strawberries Spring 2013

Our strawberry crop this year is looking great! The plants are huge, the leaves are poison green, and the blossoms keep coming. We are looking forward to having everyone come down for Pick Your Own Strawberries.

There are a few changes to this year’s Pick Your Own.

The strawberry field location has changed. Instead of being on our farm, the strawberry field will be located just a short distance away. The new address for the strawberry field is 11417 Tippett Rd. Clinton, MD 20735.

Also, our picking hours have changed. This year we will be open for picking everyday from 8am to 12pm, beginning mid-May and going through the end of June.

The price will be the same as it has been in previous years, $1.99lb.

We hope you are just as excited as we are for fresh, homegrown strawberries. For more information you can check out our Facebook page for daily updates or call 301-399-5485.

Free Range Chicken Eggs

The newest addition to Miller Farms is the 600 Rhode Island Reds. This type of chicken lays exceptionally well and lay up to five eggs per week. They tend to lay, on average, extra large brown eggs. Rhode Island Red chickens are also known for their easy-going temperment which makes it a perfect Fall attraction on our Hay Ride Tours.

All of our chickens are free range and eat a healthy diet of grains, grass, and bugs. We have no cages and they are able to go inside and outside as they please. When chickens have the ability to move freely and eat what they want, they produce healthier and fresher eggs. When chickens are caged, they are force to eat certain foods and can not move around freely, which causes unnatural behaviors like feather plucking and pecking other chickens. Having free range chickens is a much more humane and healthier way to produce eggs.

We are beginning to produce and sell our Free Range Chicken eggs at our Direct Market and our Farmers Markets. Our eggs will be available for wholesale, soon.

If you have any questions, please call 301-399-5485 or 301-399-0168
