About Us:

Jade Family Farm is a certified organic vegetable farm located in central Juniata County at the foot of Tuscarora Mountain. Our fertile, well drained and relatively small fields are bounded by forest on three sides, which makes for some lovely scenery and also renders us immune to such issues as pesticide drift and groundwater contamination.
We have been farming here since 2005 and received organic certification in 2006. We grow almost every vegetable suitable to our area and some that are not (okra), along with raspberries, gooseberries, red and black currants, and strawberries. We like to grow both conventional and heirloom varieties for all of our vegetables. Our small size and diversity of crops provides us with the flexibility to adapt as market conditions change. This is a true family farm. We cultivate about eight acres of vegetables plus another acre or so of fruit.
We are committed to practicing sustainable agriculture and preserving and enriching our soils, pastures, and forest. We use cover crops, compost, and organic fertilizer to enrich our soil. Our proximity to forest land and the presence of a small orchard in the middle of our fields promotes the migration of micro-organisms into the soil in which our plants are growing. Our trees also provide habitat for birds that help control harmful insects. We are expanding our plantings of flowers to promote beneficial insects and providing habitat for solitary pollinating bees. We are embarking on a concerted effort to produce and incorporate on-farm produced compost and vermicompost into our cultivation practices, including brewing compost tea. We believe that a healthy soil, uncontaminated by artificial fertilizers and herbicides and pesticides, produces more nutritious food.
Our products are marketed in three ways. We operate a Community Supported Agriculture (CSA or Harvest Share) program in Harrisburg (with delivery on Thursday) and State College (Tuesday Delivery). We sell at the North Atherton Farmers Market on Saturdays from 10:00 AM to 2:00 PM at the Home Depot on North Atherton in State College and at the Boalsburg Farmers Market at the Pennsylvania Military Museum on Route 322 in Boalsburg on Tuesdays from 2:00 PM to 6:00 PM. And we sell to the Tuscarora Organic Growers co-op, which markets organic produce in Baltimore and Washington, D.C.
