Welcome to the Dillner Family Farm owned and operated by Don and Jane Dillner and family. We are a third generation family-owned fruit and vegetable farm located in Gibsonia, Pennsylvania since the 1940's. We participate every week during the growing season in several Pittsburgh area farmers markets, providing fresh locally grown produce. We have a farm market on the farm open from June to October. There are six greenhouse structures to extend our growing season. An orchard and blueberry bushes complement our vegetable production. Our Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) program is a successful part of our business and we are happy to offer it each year to our customers.
Our method of farming is sustainable agriculture. We use the least amount of material necessary for crop protection. We start most of the plants in our greenhouse, and then transplant them to our high tunnels and fields. The high tunnels extend our growing season by 4 weeks earlier in the spring and 4 weeks later in the fall.
What is CSA all about?
A CSA is an arrangement where individuals buy into the farm at the start of the growing season and in exchange receive a share of the farms produce. Each week from late May thru October shareholders take home a bounty of freshly picked produce from gourmet green beans and heirloom tomatoes to our delicious peas, squash and sweet red strawberries. The farm raises more than 110 varieties of fruits, vegetables, flowers and herbs. A large family share feeds a family of 3 to 5 members and is $475 for the season. A season lasts for 22 weeks. We also offer a biweekly share for 11 weeks at $300. New in 2008, we have added a small family share for a family of 2 or 3 members at $300 for 22 weeks.
A variety of fruit from Boyer Farms will complement our fruits and vegetables in the CSA box. Value added products are offered from other local farms including Amish baked goods, preserves, relishes, premium aged beef, organic roasting chickens and organic eggs. A periodic newsletter, farm tours and an occasional survey are some ways that we keep in touch with our members. We host farm tours in May. You may visit the farm and see, first hand, how your food is being produced. We are located on Sandy Hill Road one half mile from Rt. 8. Nine Springhouse Lane is our driveway.
