About Us:

In 1998, "Maggie's Organics" was created on one acre of a 94 arce farm in Westmoreland County. By growing the most exotic heirloom varieties of vegetables, Maggie found immediate interest from many four-star chefs in Pittsburgh. This small, speciality business flourished intil, in 2001, Maggie decided to open a one-of-a-kind restaurant of her own, "Maggie's Mercantile" near Donegal, PA. The restaurant distinguished itself by being the only all-vegan eatery in Western Pa, with an emphasis on using organics to whatever degree possible. With the addition of a large greenhouse, growing vegetables and lettuces became a year round occupation and finally, production was high enough to sell to much larger purveyors. Currently, Maggie's Organics sells exclusively to Paragon Monteverde Foods and "Maggie's Mercantile" supplies Giant Eagle Market District with several deli dishes in their gourmet section. This spring, Maggie will open a second restaurant, deli and organic grocery on South Craig Street in Oakland. (Pittsburgh)

This season, the farm will begin expanding production to include four more cultivated acres, add a second greenhouse, open an on-site farm store that will feature fresh picked veggies, a small deli of Maggie's vegan foods and eco-friendly gifts. To make a visit to the farm more interactive, shoppers will be able to pick their own berries and select their own cut flowers. This season also will be the first time the farm will provide "tipi" structures for interns, erect a solar heated bathhouse, install composting toilets, and initiate plans for more sustainable ways of doing the business of agriculture.

Next year, the farm will be further developed with the addition of classrooom spaces, a conference center and "green" habitable sturctures among the rolling fields and forests. Locatedd just minutes from the New Stanton exit of the turnpike, "Maggie's Organics" hopes to become a center for retreat activitied and as educational center exploring biodiversity, permaculture, wholism, and earth friendly living.

We are ceritfied organic by PCO. Most of our varieties are heirlooms passed down through the years for their great taste. Come join us
