About Our Name

Our name originates from the colonial land grant for the area along with the original owner of the land, John Broom. The ‘Bloom’ refers to crops flourishing and providing for the tenants, hence the name, “Broom’s Bloom Dairy."

Our History

Broom’s Bloom is an interesting mix of ancestral history and new beginnings. The farm and house dates back to the early 1700's and is supporting its 9th generation of the Dallam family. The farm is named after the colonial land grant for the area. In 1997, David and Kate Dallam started milking 65 cows on the farm and even more recently they started making and selling old fashioned ice cream, farmstead cheese and pork sausage. Our animals are fed a natural diet of grains and forages and we do not use artificial growth hormones.

Christopher's Train Garden

Our annual train garden in memory of Christopher Cooper, a little boy who loved trains and Christmas. The train garden opens the day after Thanksgiving and runs through the first of January. The garden opens at noon and closes at 8 pm. Free admission, but donations collected go towards improving the garden.


As rated in the Washington, DC / Baltimore 2014 Zagat Restaurants Guide, "Its awesome homemade ice cream is best enjoyed with a view of the cows who contributed at this friendly, family-owned country cafe in idyllic rural Harford County that's ranked as Greater Baltimore's No. 1 Bang for the Buck; in addition to the relaxing farm atmosphere, simple soups and sandwiches give many I-95 drivers the energy to continue on their road trips."
