Spore and Seed is a small but mighty farm in Baltimore County, MD. We are committed to providing our local community with high quality fresh cut flowers, dried flower products and mushrooms grown in a way that honors nature. We sell to florists, at farmers markets, and provide flowers for weddings and events. We sell mushrooms to local restaurants and at farmers markets.
We operate our farm as stewards of the land and as such follow organic growing practices and use low impact farming methods. We feel very grateful to interact with the natural world each and every day and try our best to create an environment that supports the flora, fauna and fungi that existed before us.
Who we are
I’ve had the pleasure of making agriculture/horticulture my career for over a decade. It took me all over this country, from the foot hills of Appalachia to the peony fields of Alaska. When I returned to Baltimore in 2017 I started tinkering with the idea of staring my own farm. With a whole lot of help, encouragement and sweat Spore and Seed was created in 2018 and we haven’t looked back since. My partner Ben is a full time studio artist at a glass blowing studio but he is also our #1 mushroom nerd and loves chatting it up at our markets. We love being able to provide products that nourish belly and soul while remaining true to our environmental stewardship beliefs.
