Berkshire Pigs

Ritter Farm

The earth is turned by shovel, rake, and snout.
The taste of wild mint in the air.
Hogs in the glen, shaded by Sycamores,
root walnuts and worms alike.
Boulders, rocks, and stones decide on the hillside.
Grass is cut by teeth of sheep where feathers drift nearby.
On top the hill, bound by two streams, and atop the river,
stands Ritter Farm.

Our Life, Our Passion

Food is essential to life. Life is essential for food.
Therefore, we farm.

We practice organic and Non-GMO farming.

We grow fruit and vegetables the way nature intended.

We raise animals humanely in a natural and safe place.

We pursue the highest quality and flavor in our food.

The sunrise greets us every morning. So do our children, chickens, ducks, pigs, sheep, and dogs. Feed the kids. Feed the animals. There’s always a mouth to feed. And we always eat well.

We invite you to discover the food we eat and grow.


Michael and Laura Ritter’s small organic farm in Howard County has been growing leaps and bounds over the past several weeks as more people look for alternative ways to buy proteins, like meat and poultry.
