You will enjoy visiting our old-fashioned, wood-paneled country store!
We are open year-round Thursday, Friday and Saturday from 10 am – 6 pm or by appointment.
Farm products include:
- Award-winning artisan raw milk farmstead cheese
- Natural raw milk for pets*
- Pastured dry-aged beef, including organ meats
- Pastured pork, including nitrate-free sausage and bacon
- Pastured chicken, including heads, feet, livers, hearts, and gizzards
- Pastured chicken eggs
- Fresh Pastured turkey (at Thanksgiving)
ALL DAIRY AND MEATS WE PRODUCE ARE SOY/CORN-FREE. Not giving our animals these cheap GMO feeds drastically raises our production costs but we feel it is absolutely necessary for the health of our livestock as well as the nutritional integrity of the resulting food.
Our Farm Store also sells fermented foods, books from NewTrends Publishing, and crafts by Maryland artists. During the spring to fall seasons, we offer organically grown produce from our greenhouse and a local organic farm.
*At this time Maryland laws prohibit the sale of raw milk for human consumption – our Philander’s Pet Milk is sold for pet food.

What our Customers are Saying
“I visited an Amish farm today in PA and was pleasantly surprised when the owner, Katie, asked if I was familiar with Sally Fallon and the Weston A. Price Foundation. She said that they had been very helpful to her and their farm….that the education being provided about traditional diets has been a huge help to their health and business. I could not agree more! My wife and I saw first hand the high level of commitment by P.A. Bowen Farmstead in providing not just a destination to buy quality food but to really learn why it’s important to do so. Please keep up the great work, you all are making a difference!” Chad
“Our local CSA at the Accokeek Foundation recommended you as a good local meat producer. My husband and I checked out the stand at the Waldorf Farmer’s Market and then drove out to your farm store and were delighted! We stocked up on pork, beef, chicken, eggs and cheese, and got a chance to peek in at the new piglets. Thanks for caring about the environment and your animals. We’re excited to make the P.A. Bowen Farmstead our go-to place for local, sustainable and humanely raised meat.” Marcella F
“I came out to the farm on Saturday and can’t thank you enough for providing an alternative to grocery-store meats. I bought one dozen of your soy-free eggs. I haven’t been able to eat eggs without my skin breaking out for over a year – even when they are free-range eggs from my CSA. I have eaten one soy-free egg for the last three days and guess what? NO BREAKOUTS! My skin is actually improving! This is so exciting for me since I love eggs. They are delicious with your sage pork sausage for breakfast. Many thanks to everyone for all of your hard work!” Jessica M
“Your chicken is some of the best we’ve ever had!” Maria H
“Delicious pork tenderloin from your Berkshires for lunch today. Marinade of pale dry sherry and olive oil, with marjoram, parsley, cardamom, a not-quite handful of coarse Celtic sea salt, a pinch of dry mustard. We are doin’ the happy-tummy dance! Many thanks.” Leigh G
“I am thoroughly enjoying reading Nourishing Traditions! We stopped and bought some liver, leaf lard and back fat. The other night I cooked some of your bacon, sautéed up some liver and onions in the lard from the back fat and I have to tell you it was some of the best we have ever eaten. It was so tender and delicious!! Yesterday I rendered the leaf lard and sprinkled the crispies in the chicken with brown rice soup. Again, some of the best chicken soup I’ve made! We love that your farmstead is as close to us as it is. Thank you!!” Mary S
“Our Easter dinner began with comments on how “different” the uncured Ham roast looked from a “regular” ham. It ended with my husband commenting he doesn’t think he’ll ever be able to eat “regular” ham again because the one we got from your farm was SO good!!” Maria H
P.A. Bowen Farmstead Soy-free, Free Range Turkey “Cooked to an internal temperature of 165, this was the most succulent (also the largest) turkey I have ever cooked. I confess I brined it roughly a day although it probably didn’t need it. No internal stuffing, on a bed of mirepoix and the sage that came from our yard.” Noah S
