Giving Back

NO FOOD WILL BE WASTED FROM GORMAN FARMs.

It is important that our CSA members know any leftover produce grown for the program goes directly to supporting the Community and those in need. A common concern to the CSA model, for many farms, is too much food or wasted food. This can result from share size quantities received, bumper crops and extra offerings, missed pickups (from life’s curve balls), vacations taken, personal preferences or dietary restrictions.  At Gorman Farms, your food is not distributed in a box.  You choose your selections within our offerings.  You may take less, without compromising your value because that is built in.  Understanding Share Value

Participating in the Gorman Farms CSA is not only providing the means for a farm in the neighborhood but is also giving back to the community through outreach.

We are proud of our relationships with the Maryland Food Bank and local food pantries. Over the past 10 years, we have made substantial donations, nearly each week of the season.  Last year, Gorman Farms donated over $8000 of produce back to our community.

These wonderful organizations are all serving the local Howard County community, and those in need struggling to purchase quality and nutritious foods. These organizations take all the fresh produce and add it to their grocery store like setting and open their doors to those in need. It is truly making a community difference.
