Welcome to Next Step Produce!

Next Step Produce is an 86-acre certified-organic farm located in Southern Maryland, 50 miles south of Washington DC.  We are a four-season farm cultivating diverse grains, dried beans, vegetables, and fruit.  Since the inception of Next Step Produce in 2000, our specialties have evolved and continue to do so.  One thing remains the same – in our practices we strive to make a viable, regenerative, and often adventurous contribution to a local food system.  When we were asked “Why grow rice?”, the answer was: “Because we eat rice.”
