This Week at the Market: Waltz Family Farm

The Waltz Family Farm is the oldest continuously-owned family farm in Washington County, dating from 1774. We are thrilled that they are back with us at Cheverly Community Market this season! We found this great Washington Post article from 2007 featuring Sally Waltz -- it's a wonderful read and sure to get your juices flowing!
As Laurie explains...
Waltz Family Farm, located in Smithsburg, Maryland, will be offering Beef, Pork and Lamb. We raise all the animals on our farm. Feed all natural grains and hay. The hay we make on the farm, grain is custom-mixed and purchased from a reputable supplier near Lancaster, Pennsylvania. Beef and Lamb are pastured as well. The hogs are kept in a large barn and free to roam where ever they please (inside the barn).   

The Waltzes were a popular off-season attraction in the Cheverly Community Center parking lot this year, and provided many of our regular customers with wonderful fresh meat throughout the winter. This week, Waltz Family Farm will be well stocked with Beef, Pork, and Lamb.   They've done a lot of butchering recently and their freezers are full! Late last year, the Waltzes had for Beef Cheeks and also for thick cut Pork Chops, and she has them, so make sure to stop by the Waltz Family Farm tent this Saturday at Cheverly Community Market!
