White Hall family farm and its iconic sunflowers to be featured on Maryland Public Television show

Miller’s Farm and Farm Market in White Hall will be featured on Maryland Public Television’s original series Maryland Farm & Harvest on Tuesday at 7 p.m.

The segment, entitled “Sunflowers Help Grow a Farm Business,” features the Miller’s Farm’s large field of sunflowers planted by the roadside — a display that gets the attention of those driving between Baltimore and Harford counties in the summer.

The Millers have been farming this property since 1957 and recently expanded the operation to include a market in Harford County to sell beef and other farm products. To help draw in customers, the family planted a field of sunflowers. According to Jake Miller, when the sunflowers are in bloom, their business increases 20 to 30 percent. To capitalize on the plants’ popularity, customers can enjoy a walk through the field and cut flowers to take home.
