First Fruits Farm, Inc. is a Christian ministry dedicated to providing hungry people 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.
First Fruits Farm’s volunteer staff works together to plant, harvest and distribute fruit and vegetables on approximately 185 acres in northern Baltimore County, Maryland, the use of which has been donated by several local farm owners committed to our mission of serving needy individuals in our community.
Refrigerated trucks from our distribution partners, including Maryland Food Bank, York Food Bank, New Hope Ministries, Central Pennsylvania Food Bank, Rock City Church, MANNA Food Bank, and Westminster Rescue Mission, help to transport the harvest to hot meal programs, food banks and shelters in the Baltimore/Washington region. We also deliver directly to a variety of partners serving healthy meals to those in need. Since 2004, nearly eight million pounds of fresh produce have been provided to hungry people living our community.
