Top 50x2: Scenic View Orchards and SERVPRO OF Frederick County

In this year’s special edition of Frederick Top 50x2, we are recognizing Frederick County’s most resilient businesses that have been serving our community for 20 years or more.  Each week we will be highlighting businesses and organizations that were selected for the publication.  These are the companies that prove that Frederick County is a great place to do business. 

Scenic View Orchards
16225 Sabillasville Road | Sabillasville
Established: 1860

Founder: Samuel Harbaugh

Scenic View Orchards began their operation in the mid-1800's with primarily a hay and grain operation. Through the years, different crops were raised based on product demand and to allow for proper soil management practices. The farm has remained family owned and operated for the past seven generations.  Over the past thirty years, we have expanded our operation to include fruit trees, berries, and vegetables.

Why is Frederick County a great place to do business?

Frederick County is a great place for our business because the community supports local produce and farms. We also have great access to market our products in the second largest city in Maryland; we attend three Frederick farmer’s markets during the growing season. Our roadside market in Sabillasville is also convenient for those looking to explore the countryside. Lastly, there is a strong network of other growers to market our produce to and use as resources.

SERVPRO OF Frederick County
4660 New Design Rd Suite I | Frederick
Established: 1999

Founder: Charlie Thompson

Servpro of Frederick County is a full service provider of restoration/mitigation services for water, fire, flood, biohazard and sanitizing services.  We offer 24 hour emergency service to make any of your fire/water emergencies "Like it never even happened".  We are a locally owned franchise serving Frederick, Gaithersburg and Germantown. 

Why is Frederick County a great place to do business?

Frederick County is a great place to do business because the community values local businesses and owners.  Frederick County is a large county but still has a small town feel.  We live and work in the County and know it is important to our customers to know we are invested in the community.

Describe a significant event in your company’s history.

This past September we were asked to be a part of Servpro's Storm Team and respond to hurricane damage in Florida from Hurricane Sandy. To be a part of such a big relief effort was humbling and rewarding.  We traveled to the Gulf Coast with crews and supplies to respond to over 20 homeowners in need.

What is your advice to a young company?

Be a part of the community as much as possible.  Frederick is a very friendly community with many networking opportunities. Personal connections are invaluable.  Take advantage of all Frederick County has to offer!

Frederick County is very fortunate to have an amazing business community, especially those that have been in business for over 20 years.  We understand that there are more than 100 legacy businesses in Frederick County, but unfortunately, we were not able to include all these businesses in the Top 50x2.  The businesses included were selected from responses submitted to a business survey.  OED staff verified the responses and then selected the businesses on a first come first serve basis.  If your business would like to be included in future opportunities, please email
