Having been raised on a wheat and cattle farm in northern Oregon, Bob chose to continue the family tradition. We both have education and experience in pasture and resource management.
We had a farm in southeastern Oregon where we raised paint horses, managed cattle grazing and produced hay on 240 acres of uplands and irrigated alfalfa and grass. In 2001, when Bob accepted a position with the Bureau of Land Management in Washington, DC, we picked up and moved to a new farm – Groff’s Content – in Rocky Ridge, MD. Now that Bob is retired from the Bureau of Land Management, We run the farm full time, with the help of daughter Nina, nieces Arley and Stephanie and some awesome farm and market helpers.
Groff’s Content Farm has been around for over 250 years. It was part of a royal land grant dating back to the 1750s. The farm still has 100 of the original 120 acres it had back then, which we find amazing. The name of the farm in 1752 was Groff’s Content. To respect the history of the farm, we chose to stick with the historical name.
Today we participate in several Farmers Markets in the DC area and are wading into the world of internet selling and home delivery. Just know when you call or email you are contacting one of us.
