Bel Air's Saturday farmers' market, at 27 one of the oldest in the state, is a standout in many ways. Brimming with colorful fruits, vegetables, plants and other locally grown or made products from April to October, it consistently ranks as one of the state's Top 10 markets in attendance. It is also, according to Tony Evans, coordinator of farmers' markets at the Maryland Department of Agriculture, the only market in the state where compost is sold or where, for the first time this year, local beef is for sale.

The Graystone Lodge, a proposed restaurant in an 18th- century Harford tavern and lodge on Belair Road, was reviewed by the county's development advisory committee last week and is moving forward, with some traffic and water-quality issues to resolve. Several community members spoke in favor of the restaurant, which owners Steve and Anna Marie Bavett of Baldwin hope to model after the Milton Inn in Baltimore County and Union Hotel in Cecil County. "We are very much for it," said Patricia Dallam, who lives in Joppa, adding that the project would help preserve the rural character of the Belair Road entry into Bel Air in a "beautiful fashion."

Alex Pace walked the halls of a local nursing home, stopping at the patients' rooms to visit. During brief conversations she learned many of them were without families or visitors. "It made me feel good to be at the elder home," said the 13-year-old, an eighth-grader. "I wanted to make them smile and feel better. I'm close to my grandparents, and I got to help the elder people without grandchildren see what it would be like to have a granddaughter." Alex's visit was a small part of the extensive community service program offered at Harford Day School, which she attends.

On the farm Like many dairy farmers, Kate and David Dallam hire a nutritionist to regulate the feed for their cows. Well aware that proper diet is crucial for a cow's health and milk production, the Dallams, owners of Bloom's Broom Dairy in Bel Air, learn the fat and protein content from reports every few days from the cooperative that processes the milk. Correct protein levels in feed are important, experts said. Too little leads to low milk production, and too much can be an expensive waste of feed.

Andy and Mary Laudenklos each spend more than 70 hours a week caring for their 600 cows, delivering calves and overseeing the milking at their Carroll County dairy farm - and they're also raising three young sons. The couple and their three-year-old business, East West Farm outside Union Bridge in Carroll County, are struggling. They have doubled the size of their herd and hope to one day procure a robotic milker, all to turn the operation profitable. They are just breaking even now. Dairy farmers are an increasingly rare breed in Maryland, where such operations are disappearing at a rate twice the national average.

Of the eight possible sites for a new and larger park-and-ride at Interstate 95 and Route 152 in Joppa, state transportation officials' favorite is the least popular with residents. The preferred site is a nearly 10-acre wooded parcel just north of the interstate. "That is 10 acres of pristine woods that is our buffer from 95," said Vince Rabenau of Joppa during an informational meeting last week at the Joppa-Magnolia Fire Hall. The property, owned by Trinity Baptist Church, provides "a sanctuary from the noise, pollution and traffic," he said.
