Double Oak Farm

Double Oak FarmACLT is very proud of our volunteer run Double Oak Farm, located by our North Side Trailhead in Prince Frederick, Maryland. We are pleased to announce that beginning this season, almost all produce harvested will be donated to local Calvert County food pantries. With an acre of organic vegetables, fruits, and more, we anticipate that we will provide enough produce for 40 families per week.


We also hope to teach everyone to grow their own healthy food! Our "Outdoor Classroom" is ready for visitors! Stop by on Sundays for a tour and learn how easy it is (no, really!) to grow your own food!


Join us for our Second Sunday Farmer's Markets in June, July and August. All proceeds will go to benefit the mission of the farm.

The American Chestnut Land Trust (ACLT) is a local land trust located in Calvert County, Maryland, an hour's drive from both Washington, D.C. and Baltimore. We invite you to explore ACLT's self-guided hiking trails on your own, join one of our guided canoe trips, or attend one of the activities included in our Calendar of Events to experience our beautiful 3,000-acre preserved area for yourself. We also invite you to get involved in protecting the most pristine watershed on the western shore of the Chesapeake Bay by volunteering and becoming a member of the land trust!
