Montgomery County, Maryland celebrates its agricultural heritage by promoting local farms and inviting visitors to explore agricultural enterprises during the 2024 Farm Tour & Harvest Sale on Saturday, July 27, and Sunday, July 28.

Montgomery County was among the first counties in the nation to develop no-till conservation farming, and there are currently 583 farms and 350 horticulture enterprises in Montgomery County, which employ more than 10,000 people.

This year, the Montgomery County Office of Agriculture has partnered with 24 farms, orchards, and vineyards to host special events on July 27 and 28. County residents and visitors of any age are welcome!

The Agriculture Reserve or “Ag Reserve” is heralded as one of the best examples of land conservation policies in the country, the Agricultural Reserve encompasses 93,000 acres, almost a third of the county’s land resources. Visit farms in the Agricultural Reserve in the spring for pick-your-own strawberries, blueberries, tart cherries, blackberries, red raspberries, and tomatoes. In the fall, families head out to the pumpkin patch, and during the holidays, they cut fresh trees.
