Shane Hughes, farmer and owner of Liberty Delight Farms has a lifelong passion for farming that finally began on his family’s historic property located in Reisterstown, MD. After college, he entered the world of corporate finance. The farm became his sanctuary/haven/refuge on the weekend after a long week of commuting into the city each day. Finally, in 2009, he turned down a corporate promotion and took over the family farm. Within 8 years,he has grown the farm from 10 head of cattle to a thriving farm business built on the the three cornerstones that are the foundation for Liberty Delight Farms: health, happiness, and sustainability.
Shane takes great pride in offering a free-range environment to all of the animals on the farm. All of his animals are raised without growth hormones, stimulants or antibiotics.
