Founded in 2008, Fair Weather Farm at Fairhill, is a family owned and operated Organic Farm in Cecil County, Maryland. We began our passion for growing sustainable, organic food on a 5 acre plot of land on our homestead to service our small community in Fairhill. In an unwavering commitment to safeguard our regions farmland and expand our operations to serve the community, we purchased the historic "Watkins Farm" adjacent to us in 2016, to retain it's cooperative agricultural purpose. Farming to us is more than simply growing a sustainable crop, but it's also the responsibility of safeguarding the integrity of the land and its natural resources. Our family’s desire is to be good stewards of the land for future generations.
We also believe we have a social responsibility in educating our community in growing, harvesting & preserving sustainable grown foods to those who want to learn a healthier lifestyle. From our family to yours, we invite you to enjoy our delicious home-grown produce through our CSA program.

The Bentley's were introduced to the Gotland breed in 2015 and were immediately attracted to their personality and lustrous curly gray fleeces. Gotlands are quite bright, active and friendly - full of curiosity. Nancy & Randy were excited to establish this unique and rare breed of sheep at their farm, in Cecil County, MD. They raise and up-breed the sheep strictly for their fiber and offer other like-minded individuals the opportunity to purchase their sheep in keeping with the same mindset.
