Although the final months of the year mean slower sales for many farm-based businesses in Maryland, the holiday season is anything but for Morris Hill Farm  in Anne Arundel County. In fact, it could be called their busiest time of the year.

Owners David and Vicki Haberkorn recently enjoyed selling nearly all of the 280 Thanksgiving turkeys that they began raising on their Tracys Landing farm back in July. This is a far cry from the 40 Thanksgiving turkeys that the Haberkorns raised and sold back in 2018, when they decided to turn the 13-acre parcel of land that Vicki grew up on in Southern Anne Arundel County into a working farm.
