Howard County Farm Heritage Museum
Howard County is a 253 square mile community located in Central Maryland. We have a population of approximately 250,000. We are in a geographical setting that ranges from urban neighborhoods to rolling hills and rural farmland. Located between the cities of Baltimore and Washington, D.C., Howard County is subject to the demands posed by rapid growth and development. The mission of the Howard County Farm Machinery Club is to preserve our agricultural way of life through programs that offer presentations and displays designed so those participating can experience the way of life in historical Howard County. Our programs are both educational and informative that combines learning with a wholesome family environment. We partner with numerous organizations, many of which can be reached through links from our web site. Please click on an image below for a larger view.

Ellicott Mills Brewery

Here at the Mills we have a very simple, yet demanding approach to producing Alpenhof beer. We use the very best ingredients available. We are efficient and precise in production method, yet we allow the product to age to its full maturity. Balance is the key to our beer. Alpenhof beer is not created to challenge the senses. It is not created to be a complex beer. Well balanced for Alpenhof means smooth and easy-drinking. The way a beer should taste.
