Howard County, Maryland’s historic Clark’s Elioak Farm, located along Maryland Route 108 in Howard County, Maryland, is a working farm with 540 acres. It is prohibited from using the land for non-farm development since the entire parcel is protected by county or state farmland protection programs.
The Elioak farm has been in the Clark family since 1927, and the Clarks have a long history of farming in Maryland that dates back seven generations.
A type of silty clay loam common on the slopes and summits of hills in the northern portion of the Piedmont Plateau is referred to as Elioak in the name of the plant. Elioak soil is deep, well-drained, and fairly permeable, making it a good choice for apple orchards because of its favorable characteristics. Elioak was also recognized as a former Howard County postal village from the turn of the twentieth century.
