This morning Ms. Smith’s 3rd Grade class visited Roseda Farm in Monkton, MD. Roseda Farm proudly uses sustainable, traditional, small scale practices to raise cattle for meat. The students got to see inside the barn, pet a two-hour-old calf, play with the farm dog, and climb straw-bales (and frozen compost piles). You can purchase Roseda Beef at their farm store (15317 Carroll Road, Monkton, MD 21111). Farm store hours are Tuesday – Friday 10 am. to 6 pm. and Saturday 10 am to 4 pm. Roseda beef can also be purchased online at http://www.roseda.com/RosedaFarm/purchase-beef.html.

Plus, a few 3rd grade students (and our chickens) make a cameo.
