Star Democrat: Godfrey Farms receives recognition from comptroller

SUDLERSVILLE — Family-owned Godfrey’s Farm received a proclamation from state Comptroller Peter Franchot on May 1.

The Queen Anne’s County farm owned by Tom and Lisa Godfrey grows 250 acres of hand-harvested fruits and vegetables, including asparagus, peppers, strawberries, peaches, cherries and blueberries, and was recognized for its contribution to Maryland’s agriculture business.

Godfrey’s Farm offers both a farmers market and the option for visitors to pick their own produce from the fields. It also sells produce directly to grocery stores, produce stands and distributors in Maryland, Delaware and Pennsylvania.

Open from mid-April to Labor Day, the farm at 302 Leager Road in Sudlersville also is home to the Peach Festival held each summer.

The Godfreys, who were pleased to be recognized by the comptroller, said they take pride in hosting events for the community that inspire healthy living.

On May 24, Godfrey’s Farm will host Strawberry Home School Day, an educational program for students pre-k through 12th grades that, for a small fee, will introduce kids to the workings of the farm and let them pick their own container of strawberries.

June 24 is Bluegrass in the Blueberry Patch, when fresh blueberries will be available, and guests can enjoy listening to live, local bluegrass music while visiting the farm and enjoying kids' activities, hayrides and food.
