Today, Thanksgiving Farms continues to maintain a thriving CSA, orchard, nursery, garden center, brewery and gathering place, while maintaining the heart of the story, "We Grow Our Own"
ABOUT OUR FARM
"Thanksgiving Farms was born in 1980 when Timothea Zimmermann received one of the first business loans for women in Frederick County and was able to purchase a 57-acre farm just south of Frederick off Buckeystown Pike in Adamstown.
She was so thankful for the opportunity to realize her dream that she named the farm accordingly, and from her youngest child to the eldest (there were eight), the family worked a seven-day-a-week schedule to bring fresh, beautiful vegetables to farmers markets in Baltimore and Washington, D.C.
In the 1990s, the farm began selling ornamental and landscape plants. But as time elapsed, Zimmermann’s love of the beautiful and unusual — and her background in horticulture — began to manifest itself in the uncommon varieties of perennials, annuals and shrubs that Thanksgiving Farm grew and offered each season."
