Horizon Organic Holding Corp., which operates a large dairy farm on Maryland's Eastern Shore and leases the Naval Academy dairy farm in Gambrills, reported a sharp drop in first-quarter earnings yesterday despite a big jump in sales. Net income for the Boulder, Colo.-based company for the three months that ended March 31 was $307,000, or 3 cents a share. For the corresponding quarter of last year, the company posted a profit of $502,000, equal to 5 cents a share. Sales rose 60.4 percent to $26.3 million, from $16.4 million.

Bobby Prigel has started off on the right foot — with ice cream. He'll get to the bottled milk, cheese, butter and yogurt later. Right now, he's only selling ice cream, and the good stuff you can make with ice cream, like milkshakes. I got a call on Saturday from Steve Belkoff, a Prigel supporter. He had his first Prigel milkshake in hand, took a sip while he was on the phone with me, and declared it delicious. You can't go wrong if you start with ice cream. After a long, unfortunate and costly legal battle with some of his Long Green neighbors in Baltimore County, Bobby Prigel has opened his organic creamery for operations.

Four years ago, the outlook was sunny for the vacant 875-acre Anne Arundel County farm that once produced milk for generations of Naval Academy midshipmen. A new tenant, Horizon Organic Dairy, had turned it into an educational center focused on all-natural farming, and was welcoming busloads of schoolchildren from across the Mid-Atlantic to see a corn maze, among other attractions. Today, however, the center is closed and the Gambrills farm is nearly deserted, except for three employees and a few dozen heifers.

KENNEDYVILLE -- Sprawling over 140 acres of hilly pastures outside this Eastern Shore crossroads, the Horizon Organic dairy farm looks for all the world like a postcard. But lately, it has become a flash point in a national debate about how to raise cows to supply a burgeoning market for organic products. At issue isn't the milk that comes from more than 500 Holsteins at the Kent County farm. It's about whether cows should be cows - or at least how much time they should get to spend outside the barn, grazing in green pastures of grass, clover or alfalfa.

It is only when you wander around the other side of the barns on the former Naval Academy dairy farm that it becomes clear what the project is all about: hundreds of acres of rye, soybeans and hay growing pesticide-free, and about a half-dozen farm animals being raised without hormones. Horizon Organic Dairy, which opens to the public this weekend, has made a monument to pesticide-free eating, drinking, working and purchasing. One of the gleaming white buildings on the dairy farm is now an educational center, teaching visitors about bovine life, crop rotations and milk's journey from cow to carton.

It is being renovated as a teaching farm, where visitors can learn about the interaction of agriculture and the environment.

Picture this: a weekend of hanging out on the grounds of a picturesque farm in Anne Arundel County. You sit with friends on a soft picnic blanket, preparing for the summer concert to begin. And as the sweet country air fills with energy and music, the band's tunes are softly echoed by bucolic harmonies, a series of long and throaty "moooos" from the cows in the audience. Set on the home turf of 250 black Holsteins, the first Horizon Organic Acoustic & Roots Music Festival will take place this weekend in Gambrills.

Horizon Organic Dairy Inc., the Boulder, Colo. producer of organic dairy products, announced yesterday that it wants to sell its 465-acre dairy farm near Kennedyville that it opened four years ago. Pika Fisher, a spokeswoman for Horizon, said the sale of the Kent County farm is part of a corporate decision to get out of the business of milking cows and rely on outside suppliers for its milk. The company is also considering the sale of a much larger dairy farm in Hall, Idaho, along with 600 acres near California's Sacramento Valley, where it planned to open a dairy farm.

Eleven days after the government unveiled the first national standards for growing organic foods, the Horizon Organic Dairy farm in Gambrills closed for the season. And when the 875-acre former Naval Academy farm reopens in April, visitors will notice that the company has been cultivating more than rye and soybeans. Horizon, the nation's largest organic dairy farmer, is adding a conference center, an animal barn and a food concession. Those are in addition to the dairy's store and the 3,000-square-foot Organic Discovery Barn, where young visitors learn the life cycle of cows and trace worm travel through soil.
