Clark's Elioak Farm, Ellicott City

Clark's Elioak Farm, located along Maryland Route 108 in Howard County, Maryland, is a historic farm covering 540 acres. All of the acreage is part of county or state farmland protection programs, barring use of the property for non-farm development. The Clarks, a family with a tradition of farming in Maryland spanning seven generations, have owned the Elioak farm since 1927.
The name, Elioak, refers to a type of silty clay loam common to the slopes and summits of hills in the northern portion of the Piedmont Plateau. Elioak soil is deep, well-drained, and moderately permeable, making it suitable for apple orchards. Elioak was also listed as a former turn of the century Howard County postal village.
In recent years, the Elioak Farm has become a petting zoo and the venue for restoration of the former Enchanted Forest.

  • Clark's Elioak farm was fun. The animals were nice and seemed pretty well taken-care-of. It's worth a visit if you have small kids or if someone really loves seeing farm animals. The bunnies were nice, as were the goats. I dunno, bottom line for me is I could probably take it or leave it. Seeing the old Enchanted Forest stuff was kinda neat, I guess. Not too many places like this, that's for sure. Maybe a bit pricey if this isn't your thing. And I'd never want to go on a weekend: always looks crowded.
  • Its always fun for me and my son! Feeding goats! Seeing animals. Holding bunnies or enjoying rides. Pay for rides at entrance and enjoy! Small enclosed play area for toddlers. Enjoy the hay ride and train ride. Visit enchanted forest. Wear good shoes and sunglasses, be prepared to walk lots!
