Farms and a healthy farming economy play critical roles in local communities and in the social fabric of our region. According to the 2012 U.S. Census, Calvert County boasts nearly 33,000 acres of farmland spread across nearly 270 different farms.

Calvert County celebrates Business Appreciation Week 2017 with a salute to agriculture, including our local seafood industry. During the first full week of May, the Calvert County Department of Economic Development presents a series of events focusing on the vital role that agriculture and aquaculture business owners have in our local economy.
