Tour and be intrigued by the configuration of the Farm House built in 1783; visit the new Pollinator Garden and Monarch Waystation which feature several hundred native plants; reflect in the Henson-Hall Slave Garden about the produce grown by enslaved people who lived and labored on the property; check the Hoop House for peppers slated for distribution to local food banks; admire the variety of vegetables growing in the Sharing Garden; learn the sweet pleasures of beekeeping and purchase honey for tea, toast, and cookies; marvel at the newly renovated shallow water wildlife pond.
Dick Arnold, The Butterfly Whisperer, will have a fascinating display of live Monarch eggs, caterpillars, chrysalis, and newborn butterflies to be tagged and released.
The Maryland Agriculture Education Foundation’s Ag on the Moo-ve will have colorful displays; exhibits; and exciting, hands-on, tabletop activities for children of all ages, all stressing the importance of agriculture.
Master Gardeners will be present to discuss the Bay-Wise Program and educate the Goshen Farm guests about effective and sustainable landscaping practices. The Master Gardeners offer landscaping problem-solving through demonstrations, clinics, projects, partnerships, and outreach activities.
The Cape St. Claire Volunteer Fire Department will proudly display its off-road Wildland Fire Engine, used to fight brush fires. This Fire Engine is able to maneuver on difficult, rough terrain. If a brush fire occurs, the Fire Engine will leave Goshen Farm and fight the wildfire!

Children’s activities to enjoy; open spaces to roam; woodland paths to walk – children of all ages will enjoy exploring Goshen Farm.
