Agriculture


The Deer Creek Watershed, which encompasses 171 square miles (109,400 acres) in Harford and Baltimore Counties in Maryland and York County, Pennsylvania, has retained a predominantly rural character with land use that is primarily agricultural and forest.

As of 2002, the 86,000-acre Harford County portion of the Deer Creek Watershed was comprised of agricultural use (54 percent), forest (30 percent), and developed land (15 percent).

In fact, preservation of the rural heritage of the County and protection of the natural environment are major goals addressed in Harford County’s Land Use Element Plan:

- Goal: Preserve and protect the County’s natural environment

- Goal: Protect and preserve the County’s agricultural heritage and the continued viability of agriculture

The Harford County Executive’s Office Division of Agriculture has provided the following list of nearly 150 farms located within the Deer Creek Watershed. These farms are listed alphabetically within the 9 major areas in Harford County through which Deer Creek flows (Bel Air, Churchville, Darlington, Forest Hill, Havre de Grace, Jarrettsville, Pylesville, Street, and White Hall).
