Koiner Farm is an unexpected agricultural  oasis in the bustling hub of downtown Silver Spring, Maryland.  


As a visitor to Koiner Farm recalls ... "The first time I happened upon this little farm, I didn't see anyone out working in the gardens, yet I could not help but notice that the property was booming with activity - birds, squirrels, butterflies, even a few neighborhood children - all scurrying about among blossoming fruit trees and sprouting rows of lettuce.  The wonderful sounds coming from this little urban farm were in stark contrast to the heavy construction and busy intersections that I had just passed on my way here."

Koiner Farm was established in 1983 by Mr. Charles Koiner. It is now managed by CKC Farming.

This spring CKC Farming will be maintaining the eight garden beds, rebuilding the farmstand, and upgrading the irrigation and compost systems.
