Maryland Farm and Harvest on Maryland Public Television

Season 7 Episode 714 | 26m 48s (Available for free on Roku’s PBS app)

“In this special episode, we take a look at how the COVID-19 pandemic is affecting agriculture. We begin by speaking to Jason Scott of Walnut Hill Farms, Jenny Rhodes of Deerfield Farm, and Katie Dotterer-Pyle of Cow Comfort Inn Dairy about the pandemic’s impact on their grain, poultry, and dairy operations. Next, we travel to Graul’s Market in Cape St. Claire, Maryland to see how local farms supply produce that keeps grocery store shelves full and visit Godfrey’s Farm to learn how farmers keep our food safe. Then, on The Local Buy, Al Spoler visits Waverly Farmers Market in Baltimore to learn how markets are adapting to new social distancing rules so they can still provide healthy, farm fresh food. Al also talks to David and Emily Hochheimer from Black Rock Orchard and Tony Brusco of South Mountain Creamery about how their businesses have changed.”
