Y Worry Farm is a small family owned and operated farm in Davidsonville, Maryland, established in 1951. Over the years the farm has produced eggs, tobacco, hogs, corn, wheat, soybeans, hay & straw, tomatoes and sweet corn and pumpkins!
We’re full time farmers. Mark Scible who grew up at the farm and is current owner, began farming on his own in 1972 and has farmed ever since. Y Worry Farm currently serves as home base to his larger farming operation in the Davidsonville/Gambrills area. We rent approximately 600 acres of farmland in the area, where we produce mainly grain crops such as corn, wheat and soybeans.
We practice good soil conservation techniques such as crop rotation, cover crops and no-till planting and were named 2011 Cooperator of the Year for the Anne Arundel County Soil Conservation District.
The farming year is a busy one. Winter is a season for repairs, planning and preparation, as well as loading stored crops such as grain, hay and straw for sale.
Springtime brings planting and tending this years crops of corn and soybeans as well as cutting and baling hay. Pumpkins are planted in June, followed by harvesting wheat (and straw) in late June and early July. The pumpkins are tended and hoed throughout the summer and into September, when preparation begins for The Pumpkin Patch sales. Grain harvest begins in September as well.
Here at Y Worry Farm you’ll often see trucks pulling in to the grain storage tanks (near the barn), as grain harvest often takes place at the same time as the pumpkin harvest.
As crops are harvested fields are planted with cover crops such as rye or next years wheat crop. A busy year!
