Business Description / Hours:

Gaver Family Farm is a diversified family farming operation established in 1978 by Michael Gaver at age 17, with the first sales in 1984. Today there are seventy acres of cut your own Christmas trees planted in different stages of growth. The pumpkin business was started as a small self-serve stand in the front yard in 1998 by 8-year-old son Greg. In 2007 the family expanded the farm stand to include hayrides to the patch for pick your own pumpkins and added an agritourism Fall Fun Festival with corn maze, farm animals and numerous fun and educational activities for families. In 2010 the apple orchard was planted and in 2018 sunflower fields were added. Gaver Farm is a food producer. In 2007, after 50 years on the same farm the family sold the milking dairy herd and now have cow/calf and feeder beef herd, meat goats, feeder pigs and various flocks of birds. They operate a crop farm and grow corn, soybeans, wheat, rye cover crop and various hays. The Gaver Family was Frederick County Farm Family of the Year in 2005 and was presented the Take Pride in America award in 2008 for outstanding conservation and environmental stewardship practices. In 2011 Gaver Farm was awarded the distinction of being a Certified Agricultural Conservation Steward under the Farm Stewardship Certification and Assessment Program. Mike and Lisa appreciate the community support and are most proud of their children’s return to the farm after college and desire to keep our farm in agriculture! You are invited to come and experience the farm firsthand!
