Sharp's at Waterford Farm is a 530 acre working farm located in the western part of Howard County, family-owned and operated since 1903. We offer activities for children of all ages and adult guests.
From mid April through mid November, we offer a variety of educational programs and tours ideal for individuals and groups.
In the spring our greenhouses are full of fresh herb & vegetable plants for your gardens as well as beautiful flowers! Our opening is Tuesday, April 22nd. Check the Greenhouse page for our hours of operation.
Our spring/summer educational programs begin April 17th and go through August 15th. Click on Farm Tours on the left hand side to get a detailed description of all our programs. School groups, day cares, mom groups, or camp groups are all welcome! We also offer special Open House dates for those who are not part of a group but would like to attend our programs. (Click on Farm Tours and go to Individuals & Homeschoolers for more information.)
In the fall season there are hayrides to our acres of pumpkins. Our country store is overflowing with fall decorations grown on the farm, jams, jellies, local honey, apples, cider, crafts, mums, fall vegetables and so much more. Visit the farm animals, take a nature walk, see the observation bee hives or make a scarecrow. We also have a 10+ acre educational corn maze available every fall. We also have a mini corn maze for the younger children. There's plenty to do down on the farm.
We have been hosting visitors for 30 years and we hope you will visit with us this year. No admission is charged to enter the farm!
