“For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat…. I tell you the truth whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me.“ Matthew 25:35, 40
First Fruits Farm, Inc. is a Christian ministry dedicated to feeding the hungry with nutritious, fresh-picked fruits and vegetables. We are also a mission that welcomes all brothers and sisters to experience fellowship, the beauty of God’s creation, and the power of the gospel to change lives.
The staff of First Fruits Farm is comprised entirely of volunteers who plant, harvest and distribute fruit and vegetables on approximately 154 acres in northern Baltimore County, Maryland, the use of which has been donated by several local farm owners committed to First Fruits Farm’s mission of serving needy individuals in our community.
Refrigerated trucks from the Mid-Atlantic Gleaning Network and the Maryland Food Bank help to transport the harvest to soup kitchens, food banks and shelters in the Baltimore/Washington region. We also deliver directly to a variety of food banks, shelters and missions. Since 2004, over 5 million pounds of fresh produce were provided to the hungry of our community.
