About Locust Point Farm +-

Locust Point Farm started as a small family farm in 1980 in the northeastern corner of Maryland, close to the Delaware state line, and twenty miles from Pennsylvania. Glenn grew up raising and processing turkeys, so in the 80’s he and his wife Janet began raising and processing a few turkeys every fall for neighbors and family. They started out just working out of their garage. Eventually the little side business grew and they added on to the garage and put in a commercial cooler.

As their business grew, they moved on to getting approved for USDA processing. Timothy (their nephew) took over the operation in 2012. The business had grown quite a bit doing custom processing for local farmers. Aside from the extremely hectic Thanksgiving turkey season, they were only processing 1-2 days a week, and 500 chickens in a day was a big day. Multiple equipment and building upgrades later, they now process 6,000 per day easily and could do as much as 8,000 if needed.

The on-farm plant is processing mostly chicken now, which are raised on small farms in PA allowing them to focus more on the plant and yet still be connected to the poultry raising. The “home farm” in Lancaster County is where Glenn grew up and is now known as Sensenig Turkey Farm and run by Glenn’s nephew Merlin.
