Kaye and I (Ben) and our six children have been growing flowers (and occasionally other things) at the end of Irvington Springs Road for 25 years. Four generations of Moomaws have farmed this property since my grandfather purchased it in 1944. The kids have moved on to college, careers, marriage, parenthood, etc. But us two oldsters are still down on the farm, and loving every minute of it.
Every day brings something new to celebrate here. This is so much more than a job for us; it's a way of life. We are passionate about caring for the land, coaxing beauty from it, and sharing it with others.
Why do we do this? The garden awakens our best selves, teaches us through its cycles, and hints at the infinite that swirls in and around us.
You can find us at the very end of Irvington Springs Road. Turn at the light where Boonsboro Road meets 501. Go past Irvington Park and Beacon Hill subdivisions, to the end of the road. Pass through the farm gate, go about 100 feet, and you'll see our farm shed/shop and a parking lot on the right.
