Horsmon Farm 10 Years Harvest Festival

Horsmon Farm

1865 Horsmon Farm Lane, St. Leonard

In 2013, Cathy and JR Cosgrove became 4th generation owners when they purchased Horsmon Farm from Cathy’s parents with the plans of expanding the existing mum and pumpkin operation to having beef cattle, pigs, hay and offering educational farm visits to the public. The farm has been owned by the Horsmon family for 98 years.

When Cathy and JR took over operations, Cathy saw a need to increase the public's awareness of what farming was, is and will be like in Calvert County. The same year, they began offering hayrides and the next year a maze made from Sudan grass, the hay they grow for their cattle, was added. Every year, new farm-related and educational attractions are added to help bring the public closer to farm life.

Now, the farm welcomes guests of all ages, school groups and daycares with fun, educational activities, including a hayride that gives a tour of the farm, the Sudan Grass maze that promotes sustainability, a pumpkin patch to show the life cycle of pumpkins, visits with farm animals to teach about animal husbandry, a farm Trail to learn about soil conservation practices, school group lesson that teach about food origins and much more.
