About

Welcome to Underwood Acres, a regenerative agriculture market garden dedicated to cultivating a sustainable future. Founded in 2020 amidst the COVID-19 pandemic, our journey began with a passionate commitment to regenerating both environmental and community health. Starting from a humble backyard garden on a 1/3 acre plot in the suburbs of Baltimore, MD, we quickly grew into a vibrant source of sustainably sourced, nutritious food for our local farmers market by the summer of 2021.

In 2024, we are thrilled to plant deeper roots in Stockton, MD, on the beautiful Eastern Shore of Maryland. This move marks an exciting new chapter for Underwood Acres as we expand our vision of becoming a sustainable, agritourism farm. Here, we aim to enhance environmental and community health by regenerating diverse ecosystems, providing valuable education, and fostering community engagement.

Our Mission

At Underwood Acres, we believe in the power of food to transform lives and communities. Our mission is to produce high-quality, nutrient-dense food using sustainable practices that respect the land and nourish the people who consume its abundance. By integrating principles of permaculture and regenerative farming, we tackle environmental challenges with innovative solutions that restore soil health and promote biodiversity.

Health and Nutrition

Did you know the way our food is grown impacts our health? Chronic health conditions, such as high blood pressure and diabetes, can be vastly improved and managed through eating sustainably grown whole foods free of pesticides and antibiotics. Food grown in healthy soil is higher in nutrient density and enhances our gut microbiome with beneficial bacteria. This is a key pillar in maintaining health, living better lives, and feeling our best. At Underwood Acres, we are committed to increasing accessibility to diverse, nutrient-rich foods that support optimal gut health and overall well-being.

Sustainability and Innovation

Have you ever heard of permaculture design or regenerative farming? These are more than just buzzwords at Underwood Acres; they are the foundation of our farming philosophy. We view challenges, such as unexpected pests, as opportunities to innovate and develop solutions that replenish the soil and regenerate dynamic ecosystems. Our sustainable practices not only produce healthier food but also contribute to the resilience and vitality of our environment.

Community Engagement

We believe that building a sustainable future is a collective effort. Underwood Acres is dedicated to creating a vibrant community around the experience of growing food sustainably. We hope to offer educational programs, workshops, and events to engage and inspire our neighbors. By sharing knowledge and fostering connections, we aim to empower others to join us in cultivating a healthier, more sustainable world.

Thank you for being part of our journey. Together, we can feed the land, our bodies, and our community. Welcome to Underwood Acres.
