Stop by, hang out and welcome Robbie Jester back to the Shore at the Kitty Knight House!

Robbie will be showcasing a variety of local delights on a grazing table for everyone to sample & enjoy. Scott from Orchard Point Oyster Co will be shucking oysters and Crow Farm Vineyard and Winery will be pouring some of their wines for purchase to pair with a tasting of our new meatball lollipop appetizer, sourced from Crowfarms’ grass-fed beef.

And be sure to save room for dessert… Lockbriar Farms has whipped up a special ice cream flavor to accompany Robbie’s delicious berry shortcake, made with Lockbriar Farm’s very own berries.

Lockbriar Farms
10051 Worton Rd Chestertown, MD 21620

Family-owned and operated u-pick fruit farm committed to providing the highest quality of fresh, local products and outdoor fun since ’93. Our philosophy combines organic processes, IPM measures, the cultivation of organic seed, and the co-op support of other local farm families.

Lockbriar is Kent County Maryland’s premier agriculture destination, specializing in small-fruits and farmmade ice cream.

“growing satisfaction for our customers since 1993


Open seasonally – Memorial Day Weekend to Thanksgiving – from strawberries to pumpkins and everything in between!

U-Pick options are available for most small fruits, fresh herbs, and beautiful cut flowers. Lockbriar’s Red & White Tent opens with the debut of U-Pick Strawberries, providing our customers daily access to the freshest picks around all through the summer season. We shift into fall, offering a beautiful assortment of pumpkins, the BEST local apples, and endless autumn decor!

With no admission fee, we welcome all to experience true, authentic Maryland agriculture on a working family farm. As a multi-generational Eastern Shore of Maryland farming family, dating back to the Civil War era, the Lockwoods love sharing the importance of high-quality food and knowing who your farmer is with our guests. It’s not business, it’s personal.

For all the news that’s picked to eat… sign up for our fresh newsletter.

We reserve the right to close our fields without notice, as we see fit, due to: weather, ripeness stage, over-picking,
pest management, etc. We do not want anyone to leave disappointed and we appreciate your understanding!
