Meet the Farmers
Marc Grossman, Owner of the Farm at Our House
We are The Farm at Our House, a 12 acre, organically-certified vegetable farm in Brookeville, MD founded in 2007 by Marc Grossman (pictured below) and John Brill. Our farm, an LLC, is located on land owned by Our House, a residential job-training center for at-risk teenage boys. Our farming success is due in great part to the creative vision of the founder of Our House, Richard Bienvenue and long time Board member, Dr. Ed Gould.
We grow high quality organically certified produce at a reasonable price for the people, restaurants and grocers of Montgomery County, Maryland. We also offer the young men at Our House and area high school students the opportunity to explore the natural wonder that is sustainable agriculture.
You can join us on our journey towards a sustainable future by being a member of our CSA, purchasing produce from our market stand at the Silver Spring, MD farmers market or patronizing the restaurants and grocers who source our produce.
The farm is owned by Marc Grossman and his wife Katherine. Marc is also a social studies teacher at Montgomery Blair High School. The farm is managed by Anh Doan, an aspiring organic farmer who will revolutionize agriculture in Vietnam. We also receive a hand from Our House trainees and Montgomery Blair high school students and eaters like you.
