The Maryland Harvest
Learn about Maryland's farm-to-table movement. The Maryland Harvest, a documentary about Maryland farms and farmers and the chefs who love them, takes us on a gastronomic tour of farms throughout the state with talented chefs Cindy Wolf of Charleston, Spike Gjerde of Woodberry Kitchen, David McCallum of the Tilghman Island Inn, and Rob Plant of Blue Wind Gourmet. Following the film, a panel of Howard County farmers and restaurateurs share their experiences with farm-to-table, what they've learned, and how it works.

In partnership with Howard County Tourism & Promotion, Howard County Economic Development Authority, and University of Maryland Extension, Howard County.

The Maryland Harvest screening is offered in conjunction with the Annual Film Festival at Clark's Elioak Farm on July 16, Howard County's Summer Farm to Table Restaurant Weeks, and Howard County Farmers Market on Wednesdays at Miller Branch.
