Your Farmers & Staff

The Paulk's (Farmers)

Harry & Zoe, The Cats

Harry, as in Dirty Harry, and Zoe, are our pet cats at Sassafras Creek Farm

Harry, like his namesake is fearless, dislikes rules, and sees the world as black and white.   Zoe, is Harry's little side kick and she can be seen following him around getting into trouble.   Both are funny and love to play.

She also helps several times a month at the BAE Farmer's Market.  Mary has extensive experience as a business owner in the horticultural and landscaping field in Massachusetts. She calls southern Maryland home and in her free time she enjoys running, vintage furniture and spending time with her husband and son.  Her favorite vegetable is the tomato.
