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.

Maryland's reputation as one of the nation's leading states for farmland preservation is expected to get a boost today when Harford County officials announce the addition of 16 farms totaling more than 1,100 acres into a preservation program. The new acreage brings the amount of agriculture land that has been put into preservation in Harford County to more than 40,000 acres. The announcement is scheduled to take place at the Woolsey Farm in Churchville, a 164-acre spread that is owned by Gene and Louise Umbarger and is one of the properties entering the program.

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.
