A Little About Us
Our Roots Grow Deep
Our family grows on leased land outside of Easton, Maryland, bringing new life to an old farm field. Soil health is at the heart of our practice and to that end we are a no-till, no-tractor, no synthetic chemical farm. Our small space is highly productive through the use of intensive growing methods, specialized equipment, and regenerative soil science. Working thoughtfully and lovingly with the land is the heart of our daily practice.
Although we made the decision to start our own farm after our son's birth in 2014, the seed of Fox Briar was planted years prior. Kathleen Moss has worked in small scale agriculture for more than a decade, and with husband Daniel our combined farming experience totals more than seventeen growing seasons. Still, it was our desire to provide a natural life for our child that spurred us to begin our own vegetable operation. Beginning with a quarter acre in our back yard, we embraced the French micro-scale market gardening tradition, and urban farming models that provide high quality produce on low acreage. Now the infant who inspired Fox Briar Farm is an energetic toddler who happily plucks crisp carrots from the soil.
"The soil is the great connector of lives, the source and destination of all. It is the healer and restorer and resurrector, by which disease passes into health, age into youth, death into life. Without proper care for it we can have no community, because without proper care for it we can have no life."
