This week, the Southern Maryland Agricultural Development Commission (SMADC) launched a new Video Series “Farms in Focus” showcasing Southern Maryland’s diverse agriculture of the land and the water.
The first of the videos to launch, the “Oyster Edition”, promotes Southern Maryland’s oyster industry with the goal to increase public appreciation for oyster farming; where and how oysters are grown and harvested and the economic, cultural, gastronomic and ecological assets the oyster industry contributes to the region. Both aquaculture and wild harvest oyster producers are featured in the video, plus a top local chef and restaurant owner shares tips to prepare and enjoy locally harvested oysters!
The “Farms in Focus” videos series is available now, to view on the SMADC YouTube channel. And… Stay tuned for more editions coming soon and through 2020.
