Elizabeth and I had the privilege of visiting the Terp Farm last week as part of our sustainability rotation. Our experience there was both rewarding and educational. In addition to helping out with the harvest by picking out, cleaning, and packaging turnips for the 2016 Taste of Maryland Legislative Reception, we were also given a lesson on Terp Farm’s history, mission, and impact by Guy Kilpatric, the farm’s lead agricultural technician and cultivation expert.
