Justin and Roxann are proud alumnae of the UMBC Meyerhoff Scholarship Program. One of the central teachings of the program is Luke 12:48, "To whom much is given, much will be required."
We know we have been blessed beyond measure, and are committed to 804 paying it forward to our community and the next generation.
Our farm is located in the heart of Prince George's (PG) County, and we couldn't be more proud to be a part of such a vibrant and diverse community. We are conscientious in our choices to support other small, local businesses.
Our decisions to purchase local supports our vision and commitment to provide high-quality, local products to our community.
We recognize the inequities with respect to food security in the national capital region and are thus committed to doing our small part.
Ground beef is the most versatile item we offer, and it is one of the easiest to prepare in a variety of ways. In an effort to provide ongoing support for our community, we are now giving monthly donations to the Capital Area Food Bank, which provides food to emergency shelters, senior programs, soup kitchens, day care centers, group homes, food pantries, and more in the region.
If you would like to assist 804 in supporting the Capital Area Food Bank, you may purchase ground beef by the pound through our DONATE product option in our store. You are welcome to donate as much or as little as you like; every pound counts! At this time, donations are not tax deductible. If you would like to donate something other than ground beef, just let us know, and we will make it happen.
Every year, Prince George's County hosts the Festival of Lights Trot for a Turkey This program allows the community a sneak peak at the annual Watkins Regional Park Winter Festival of Lights, where you can enjoy the 3.1 mile course of incredible holiday lights. All proceeds from the event go to providing turkeys to local families for the Thanksgiving Holiday.
We have had the honor of being Golden Turkey Sponsors for Trot for a Turkey, and we look forward to supporting them again in the future.
Sharing our experiences and knowledge with the community is one of the best ways we know to pay it forward.
We use the farm to educate children and college students that are interested in regenerative agriculture, raising cattle, and large animal veterinary medicine.
Annually, we have enjoyed hosting the Arcadia Center for Sustainable Food and Agriculture's Veteran Farmer Program to share our successes and failures with veterans interested in getting into farming.
We have also been fortunate enough to have the opportunity to be a champion for women. Annually, we have hosted the American Farmland Trust Women for the Land on our farm. These events have involved educational tours and discussions to assist in the program's vision of empowering women farmers and landowners.
