About the Farm
Located in the Hamilton neighborhood of Northeast Baltimore, Bearfoot Farm sits on two acre plot if land that has historically been farmed in Baltimore city for many years. About 20 years ago, the Long family, purchased the land and it has since has undergone gradual revitalization. Kyle Long has undertaken the resurgence of this land as an urban farm and in 2016, the farm inaugurated its first growing season! By promoting, biodiversity and the maintenance of native species, Bearfoot hopes to implement sustainable and ecologically sound methods to keep the land fertile, flourishing, and healthy. One interesting way they are doing this is through their woodlot. The woodlot, which existed long before the establishment of Bearfoot provides a habitat for the adaptive native species as well as a breath of fresh air for a farm in the bustling cityscape. As long look to the future and the growth of Bearfoot he hope that with the incorporation of chickens, goats, ducks and with the maintenance of the farm land and woodlot Bearfoot will continue to be a healthy and model farm that strikes at the balance of reaping the benefits of farming while also supports a health ecosystem.
