Pittsburgh's Premier Organic Family Farm and CSA!
Our farm has provided Pittsburgh area customers with local, organically grown produce, fruits, and meats since 1971. One of the first organic growers in western PA, for over 40 years we have always grown strictly organically and are certified organic with Ohio Ecological Food and Farm Association (OEFFA). Our 80 acre family farm is located near Zelienople, about 35 miles north of the city. We raise an extremely wide variety of vegetable and fruit products, with a 3 acre apple orchard. We have several greenhouses, including high tunnel greenhouses which we use to extend our season. We market through an efficient CSA (Community Sponsored Agriculture) operation and a few wholesale sales. Since 1993, our weekly CSA subscriptions have offered a weekly selection of produce to our members in neighborhoods throughout the Pittsburgh area from June to Thanksgiving. Each member also receives a newsletter with updates about what is happening on our farm and recipe suggestions.
Joining our CSA is one of the easiest ways to ensure you have a refrigerator full of those healthy fruits and vegetables which keep you in top health.
The regular season is over, but the winter season is about to begin. Boxes begin 12/6 and continue every other week for 7 boxes, until the end of February. (There's also a monthly option) We're really excited about the selection of things we've got stashed away--lots of amazing carrots, beets, potatoes, cabbage, garlic, onions, squash, yams, golden ball turnips,...and Goldrush apples! There's also fresh greenery from field and greenhouse. To get on the list, follow the links here! →

"The little extra I find really appealing is the emails you send with musings and observations on the farm, the "head- up" on items us city-dwellers might not be so familiar with....and also the recipes! I had forgotten how to cook beets until you reminded me. We ate them warm, sliced into thick rounds on a big platter, drizzled with olive oil and sea salt (like we do with tomatoes in August!)."
"Your CSA, the efficiency of your business, the lovely E-mails with recipes, and the friendliness of your staff (the driver who drops off the veggies at my pick-up point), are an inspiration and important part of happiness in my life. I truly appreciate what you do and hope that others see the wonderful contribution you've made to society! I can't thank you enough! "
