Rising Stars: Meet Missy Vanarsdale of Whitehall

Today we’d like to introduce you to Missy Vanarsdale .

Hi Missy, thanks for sharing your story with us. To start, maybe you can tell our readers some of your backstory.
It had always been my dream as a little girl to own a farm & 2 years ago my dream came true! Our family owns a 1st generation 10 acre farm in Whitehall, Harford County Maryland. We offer agricultural educational experiences for both children & adults, goat yoga, guided tours & more! Our farm is also part of Harford County’s “Barn Quilt Trail” which you can view our unique barn quilt on the back of our roadside farm stand! At our self-serve roadside stand, we offer a variety of local products including but not limited to farm-fresh eggs, honey, flowers, goat milk soaps/lotions & more! Our stand is open year-round 7 days a week! We hope to continue to expand & bring more homegrown local meats & produce to the community as well as more educational opportunities!

We all face challenges, but looking back would you describe it as a relatively smooth road?
It definitely has not been a smooth road; there has been a lot of trial & error. Being a new 1st generation farm in an already established multi-generation farming community has been hard, but we as a family continue to push forward to pursue everything we’ve dreamed of bringing to the community!

Alright, so let’s switch gears a bit and talk business. What should we know about your work?
I am a stay-at-home mom/homemaker for the past 14 years!

Where do you see things going in the next 5-10 years?
We have lots of hopes & dreams for our farm! We definitely want to expand on the agricultural education aspect & hands-on learning! As well as expand by providing fresh, local produce & meat to the community!
