About Us:

Farm Description:
We are located in scenic Licking Township, Clarion County, Pennsylvania. We started farming in 1999 and became certified organic in 2001; we did not renew our certification in 2005 and will be applying to Certified Naturally Grown in 2006. Our farm encompasses 95 acres; about 3 acres are in vegetable production while the balance is in hay, pasture and woodland. We grow a wide variety of open-pollinated vegetables and herbs, most of them heirlooms. Diversity is one of the primary keys to a healthy ecosystem, and over the last 7 years we have seen first-hand the results of focusing on diversity and building a healthy soil foundation in the quality of our crops.

Practices:
Our produce is grown on a 3-year rotation cycle, in 4-foot wide crop rows interspersed with sod strips. Crops are mulched with hay or interseeded with companion crops. This method allows for weed control and soil erosion protection, as well as the growth of beneficial plants within the sod strips. We have a natural wetland area that is home to a variety of plant and animal species.

What We Grow:
Our focus is on heirloom varieties of produce; everything we grow is open-pollinated. We try to grow several varieties of each type of vegetable, and in 2006 we will be growing more than 25 kinds of hot peppers and more than 10 kinds of tomatoes in addition to many other items. We also grow several types of culinary herbs and 4 varieties of raspberries. In 2004 we started a small heirloom orchard.

Where we sell our products:
Our main market is through our CSA. We are combining our efforts with 3 other organic farms (1 certified, 2 not certified) in order to provide our customers a bountiful variety of fresh local produce. We are accepting members until May 1, 2006. Please contact us for details!

We are also at the Clarion County Farmers' Market on Saturday mornings, 8:30 to Noon from May 13 to October 28, 2006. The market is located in Memorial Park, on Main Street across from the courthouse in Clarion, PA.

INTERNS WANTED!
In 2006 we are starting an intern program. Interns will assist with all aspect of our operation, from growing produce and maintaining the garden, to operating the CSA and attending the Farmers' Market. Our Interns will gain experience in vegetable production, customer service, marketing and display design. We will provide rustic housing with access to kitchen, bath and laundry, fresh produce and a stipend based on Farmers' Market sales.
