Rock Hill Orchard

The Orchard & Farm Market

Bring your family for an authentic farm experience: pick your own flowers, pick your own peaches, pick your own apples, pick your own vegetables, and visit our farm market for pre-picked fruits and vegetables (and hand scooped ice cream!).  We are committed to farming using a sensible sustainable approach that allows us to provide you with a quality product.  In the fall, we have a corn maze and a large pumpkin patch.

Rock Hill Orchard is located in the Agricultural Reserve in Northern Montgomery County.  We are midway between Damascus and Mount Airy, MD on Route 27.  We are 18 minutes from Exit 16 on I-270 in Germantown.

The Creamery

Woodbourne Creamery at Rock Hill Orchard
The First Grade A Dairy Processing Facility in Montgomery County, Maryland.

We are producing (actually our beautiful grass fed Guernsey cows are producing), pasteurizing and bottling Creamline Golden Guernsey Milk.  We are the only farm in Montgomery County making their own ice cream and we are the only made-on-the-farm ice cream within 40 miles of downtown Washington.  Learn more about how we make our ICE CREAM from our milk.

Maryland Ice Cream Trail

You can find it for sale in our market.  Naturally high in beta carotene, our milk is easy to recognize by it's amazing golden color!
