Maryland Farm Facts is a campaign focused on providing the truth about Maryland agriculture. Our farmers are constantly under attack by environmental groups and activists who portray agriculture as an industry that doesn’t care about pollution or the Chesapeake Bay. We are here to tell the real stories about Maryland farmers who are good stewards of the land, implement conservation practices and do all they can to keep the environment safe and healthy.

The USDA released an updated progress report on the Chesapeake Bay for Maryland in September of 2016. Click the images below to view the report.
