The team at Grow & Fortify have been instrumental in helping us at Star Bright Farm identify opportunities and develop a plan for Value Added Products; helping us navigate the political process required to create a Farm Market, where we can sell our products directly from the farm, including hosting some events at the farm, and being passionate advocates representing our efforts with State and County officials in Planning, Zoning and Maryland Agricultural Land Preservation.

I want to express my thanks to Kevin and the team at Grow and Fortify. I was in need of someone who had expert knowledge in the alcohol industry; I reached out to Kevin and he was very much willing to help me without hesitation. Grow and Fortify has so much to offer to all the alcohol industries in the state and has helped me and so may others. I can’t say THANKS enough.
