Approximately 350,000 people are employed in some aspect of agriculture, making it the largest commercial industry in Maryland. Agriculture also remains the largest single land use in the State, with 2.05 million acres, or roughly 32 percent of total land area used for farming in 2008. The majority of Maryland's farmland is located in the north central part of the State and the upper Eastern Shore. In 2008, some 12,850 Maryland farms averaged 160 acres each.


  1. That is simply gorgeous! I love the hue it casts all across the land! My favorite time of the day, when all quiets down and everyone can sort of take one long, deep breath and think about the day they just lived....yep this picture truly inspires me..Thank you Jason and thank you for your comment on my blog the other day!
    And may God continue to bless the hard working farmer; they provide sustenance for so many!!!

  2. This is breathtaking. It looks like a painting, a masterpiece. You've managed to capture the inner soul of dusk in all it's glory.

  3. Superb Photograph! I love it!
    Very interesting info too :)

  4. I don't know if that is a sunset or sunrise, but it is lovely! I lived in Maryland for several years, and traveled outside of the DC area to see the farmland. I bet it is surprising to most folks that agriculture is a major employment sector in the state!

  5. Wow! You should be posting on SkyWatch! That's a stunning sky!
