This year’s Farm Family of the Year is the Lambert Family.

Two hobby fermenters have found a way to merge their love of fermenting with local agriculture to offer products that are both good for you and taste delicious.
Glade Link Farms in Keymar is a family-owned and operated farm that has been around for more than 40 years. Their produce is sold at their farm along Woodsboro Pike, as well as at the West Frederick Farmers Market at the Great Frederick Fairground on Saturdays May through November.
John & Amie St’Angelo are not your average farmers. The couple purchased their first farm in 2004 with no plans of actually owning an agri-business. Thirteen years later, they own two successful country inns and event venues, a winery, a distillery, a lavender market, and an operating farm with big plans for the future. They can add makers of nationally-award winning spirits to their list, too.
