First Fruits Farm

GROW MORE - GIVE MORE - SERVE MORE

OUR MISSION

First Fruits Farm is a non-profit, Christian ministry dedicated to providing fresh, nutritious food for

the hungry through volunteer service and community partnerships.

The Farm is blessed beyond measure by God's goodness, provision, and faithfulness. Little did we know when First Fruits Farm started in 1998 that God would use us to make such an

incredible impact on our community. 

 

100% of everything the Farm grows is donated in Jesus' name to feed children and adults who are struggling with hunger and access to healthy food. 

 

Since our inception, just under 25 million pounds of our fresh produce has been harvested and distributed to food banks, shelters, schools, churches, and other organizations throughout Maryland and the Mid-Atlantic region.

 

This does not happen without His continued guidance and our volunteer community which is the lifeblood of the Farm. It truly takes a village to keep our operations running and productive, so we are beyond grateful for our partners, volunteers, and benefactors whose generosity is extraordinary

and make our mission possible.

The harvest is waiting...are you ready?
