Where is your farm located?
Our mailing address is Howard, but we are located in a little village called Nittany about half way between Bellefonte and Lock Haven in Centre County, Pennsylvania. Visit our Contact page for a map and mailing address.
Can I visit your farm?
Currently we do not offer farm tours because of our GAP Certification.
Do you have a bakery with storefront hours?
We do not have a bakery that is open to the public, however baked goods can be ordered and picked up at the farm during scheduled times. Please contact us for more information.
What does it mean to be GAP Certified?
Good Agricultural Practices, or GAP, Certification was developed by the Food And Drug Administration to minimize microbial food safety hazards for fruits and vegetables. It entails an annual audit during harvest time and extensive record-keeping. In our case, we are required to maintain GAP Certification in order to legally sell produce to certain grocery stores.
What products do you have available right now?
The majority of our growing season is between the months of June and October, but we generally keep potatoes in cold storage year-round. We always have fresh eggs available. Please visit our What's In Season page for a more extensive list of what we grow and when it is available.
Where can I purchase products from you?
We are a member of the Boalsburg Farmers Market, the North Atherton Farmers Market in State College and the Original Bellefonte Farmers Market in front of the courthouse in downtown Bellefonte. We also sell produce to grocery stores including Wegmans in Williamsport and State College, Giant on College Avenue in State College, various Ingrams markets, Save-A-Lot in Lock Haven, Bierly's Meat Market in Spring Mills and many local restaurants.
Are you an organic farm?
We are not a certified organic farm. Technically we are classified as conventional because we make use of both natural and synthetic fertilizers, pesticides and herbicides when absolutely necessary. We also have an irrigation system and till our land. We are not, however, a large-scale industrial farm that employs irresponsible and unsustainable farming practices. Our operation is a tight-knit band of family whose main objective is to maintain the health and vitality of our land and our business.
How many employees do you have?
At this time we are a family-only operation. Willis, Wayne, Mark and Tom are the full-time farmers. Mark's wife, Samantha, is very active in the operation as well and Sam's parents, Bill and Bonnie, regularly help out at the farmers markets during the summer and fall.
Are you hiring?
We are not hiring at this time.
