Clark’s Elioak Farm is a diversified farming operation on a 540-acre property in the middle of Howard County Maryland. Since 2002, we have run an agritourism business from April 1 to early November each year. We entertain and educate many people from around the region. We also raise and process 100% grassfed cattle (mostly Angus) and pigs. We sell the meat at our on farm store year round. We have a 3-4 acre farm garden that produces vegetables that we also sell on farm. The diversification has allowed us to succeed during bad weather and even this year’s pandemic.
