Did you know that the first tea farm in Maryland is in our neighborhood?
Heron’s Meadow Farm, at 1596 Daisy Road in Woodbine, grows green tea. It will have the Second Annual Tea Blossom Celebration event on Saturday, Oct. 6 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. There will be limited amounts of green tea that was grown and processed on the farm this year. The tea plants at Heron’s Meadow Farm are seedlings and will need a few years before they are producing at their full capacity. Until then, Bob and Lori Baker’s BLTeas will supply top quality tea which has been grown around the world. At the celebration, you can sample artisan teas and learn about tea varieties and the processing of tea. Hand-crafted jewelry, footstools, baked goods and hand-crafted stoneware will be available for sale. If the weather permits, brick-oven pizza will be available.
