  • Best Accokeek Memory

Sitting on the boat dock, watching the boats go by and a bald eagle dips into the river, scoops up his lunch and flies over my head. It was a magical moment.

  • Favorite Part of the Farm

The trails: I love hiking and spending time on the trails allows me to collect my thoughts and be introspective. We all need times to quiet our minds and just take in the outdoors. That’s what this place does for me!

  • If I could be one of the farm animals…

Chicken: They are quite personable, and in the words of Homer J. Simpson, they are known for their bravery and intelligence!
