Many Maryland corn farmers turn to Bloom for a sustainable fertilizer and a great yield. So when Hampton National Historic Site needed help coaxing a historic cornfield back to life, Bloom was there for it! Located in Towson, Maryland, the National Park Service site today preserves the core of what was once a vast commercial, industrial, and agricultural estate that encompassed nearly 25,000 acres at its height, including what was possibly the largest private home in America by 1790.
Given the frequent use of “night soil” (wastewater from privies recycled onto fields) in that era, using Bloom is not only a environmentally sustainable choice for the site, but a historically appropriate one. Stay posted for results later this year!
