Welcome to Next Step Produce!

Next Step Produce is a 130-acre 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 towards a local food system.  When we were asked “Why grow rice?”, the answer was: “Because we eat rice.”

We grow here for people here

We know you want food that is grown nutritionally, tastes terrific, and is grown by someone you know and trust. If you live locally and would like to purchase morganic* fruit, vegetables, grains, grits, flour, and beans directly from the farm (Wow! That’s practically a full diet), you may do so!
