Once home to Howard County’s farm museum, 340 acres will host an agriculture office

December 20, 2023

In West Friendship Park, where the Howard County Living Farm Heritage Museum recently closed, the more than 340 acres of land will now be home to the county’s new Office of Agriculture, County Executive Calvin Ball said Tuesday at a press conference. This will be the county’s first agriculture office and the state’s third, and it will promote farming in the county. “The Office of Agriculture will create a physical space where all our agriculture-facing functions can collaborate toward a common goal of supporting farms and farmers,” Ball said.
