As time went on, growing and seeking out only the most natural, seasonal foods, and preparing them with the simplest, time honored recipes became much more than a personal pleasure. Liz has instructed cooking and healthy food preparation across a network of Farmers' Markets as a Certified Community Food Educator, worked for international sustainable agriculture organizations, connected many a farm to restaurants and hotels, and established an interactive urban nutrition program in New York City - just to name some of the food-based initiatives of which Liz has been a part. Her favorite meals are those prepared for friends and family on mismatched plates. Wine is always served at Liz's house in small juice glasses.

The Gardens are comprised of 481 plots, each measuring roughly 16' x 20'. One can find towering yellow corn, bright red heirloom tomats, meandering flower beds, and more growing side by side in this maze of plots. Some plants are chosen to attract bees from the adjacent apiary. Gardeners grow produce and vegetables for their family, friends and churches. A few will grow for restaurants; others donate to local food banks. Some use their plot to create an outdoor oasis to escape to. The Gardens serve as an excellent place to learn new greenthumb techniques, enjoy the company of fellow Gardeners, and take in the beautiful scenery the area.

He has pioneered the "Permanent Cover Cropping System", which includes no-tillage, cover crops, and effective crop rotations as a way to increase profits, enhance soil and water quality, and reduce pesticides. The cornerstone of this system is a unique emphasis on maintaining a permanent cover of crop residues and cover crops on the soil surface and having something living in the soil at all times. All vegetables and crops are then seeded or transplanted into the organic mulch. This permanent cover aids in weed control, has virtually eliminated soil erosion on the farms 3-17% slopes, and has increased soil and water quality. A passionate advocate for sustainable agriculture soil conservation, soil health, and food quality, Steve started no-tilling in the early '80s. He later began using cover crops as another soil conservation measure and now plants cover crops based on the succeeding crop that will planted the next year. Some fields have not been touched by any tillage equipment for over 30 years!

The market opens for 2010 on July 14. Matt Severson, who has gained a following for his baked goods, is now at the stand next to us on Mondays. We grow varieties for the best taste and color, not because they ship well. We're always trialing new varieties, but the old heirlooms are a particular favorite. Since I start tomato plants from seed in a passive solar greenhouse, I can grow tomats like Brandywine, Orange Banana, Black Krim, and Green Zebra. I also grow rows of the favorite cherry (Sunsugar/Sungold) and every year try a few new types. Our other specialties are salad mix and a variety of greens all year, and baby summer squash in all colors and shapes. And of course there are the cut sunflowers and the wheatgrass. The vegetables being a bit late in Susquehanna County, we often have a wide assortment of potted herbs and container plants early in the year. They get pushed off the truck as more vegetables and flowers mature, or once they're too big to carry around! We'll have sprouts (lentils, wheatgrass, pea shoots), potted herbs, flowers, foliage plants and sometimes landscaping shrubs. As always, Geof and I welcome your suggestions, brochure requests, and offers to weed.

The farm consists of a typical old farm house, a late model single level, a 14,000 square foot barn, a small green house and other small outbuildings in a beautiful setting, and is a registered wildlife refuge.

Because the organization is a non profit corporation it is conceivable and possible that the cost of product could be lower than originally stated. The amount of participation and assistance rendered by members could also lower or hold down cost of operation which could also reduce pricing. Because Misty Morning Farm is an instructional/educational farm some social events will be held from time to time which should prove to be fun as well as informative. Because the higher costs of organic food is rapidly causing some levels of the population to be excluded from the "good -for-you-foods" , we are fast becoming a nation of good (pure) food for the "haves" and poor quality contaminated/chemically tainted food for the "have nots". Our approach, via the non-profit concept, is an attempt to bridge the gap and see all natural foods available to a larger portion of our society.

After that, once a week for 22 weeks you come to our farm on the evening you chose at the onset of the season. You pick out your share—the portion of the harvest that you receive weekly. There are three different sizes of shares available this year. Whole shares feed four omnivores or two vegetarians for about one week. They usually contain about 8-12 different items. Partial shares feed two omnivores or one vegetarian for about one week. They usually contain 5-9 different items. Sampler shares can supplement home gardens or feed one person. Each week you will receive 4 or 5 different items. Most of what comprises your share is determined by what is in ready to eat that week, and how much of it we pick for you. We think that ds not give members enough control over menu planning for the week. This year we will implement a “your choice table” where you may select a certain number of the any of the items there. It will usually be comprised of the more odd things and not the favorites, that everyone begs for like carrots and lettuce. For example, we have two bundles of yard-long beans that we are trialing, some chard, some escarole, extra tomats, okra, and an edible weed. You can pick two of those to be included in your share that week. Each week the amounts and variety available will change, but the concept will be the same. We think this will be fairly simple to manage, and give you more control of your menus. Each share size comes with pick your own flowers and herbs opportunities as they are available. We can't guarantee flowers each week, since we put most of our efforts into growing a big variety of vegetables and fruits. But for all you flower lovers, summer and fall typically sport some decent bouquets. Our pick your own herb garden will be started this season and expanded next season, so look forward to opportunities to gather your own fennel, dill and parsley as you need it. The volume of food supplied in shares fluctuates from week to week. The most popular items are

Because the organization is a non profit corporation it is conceivable and possible that the cost of product could be lower than originally stated. The amount of participation and assistance rendered by members could also lower or hold down cost of operation which could also reduce pricing. Because Misty Morning Farm is an instructional/educational farm some social events will be held from time to time which should prove to be fun as well as informative. Because the higher costs of organic food is rapidly causing some levels of the population to be excluded from the "good -for-you-foods" , we are fast becoming a nation of good (pure) food for the "haves" and poor quality contaminated/chemically tainted food for the "have nots". Our approach, via the non-profit concept, is an attempt to bridge the gap and see all natural foods available to a larger portion of our society.

Produce the type of food people expect from a small sustainable family farm. Our goal is to be the farm the factory farms put pictures of on their labels. In nature everything works together in harmony and we find the same is true in agriculture. The more diverse our farm becomes the better it runs. We carefully manage the pastures to feed the animals, the animals in turn help build and fertilize the soil which in turn feeds our vegetables, the leftover vegetables help feed the animals and the soil (compost), etc, etc,.

Beccari Farms 5095 Thoms Run Road, Oakdale, PA 15071 Tel: 412-221-8768 vegepete@beccaris.com http://www.beccaris.com/index.html In 1963, Mary Beccari started The Beccari's Farm Market. It began with a bushel of apples that she sold "self-serve" style from a picnic bench. This first stand lasted for about three years. It then evolved into a small 8-foot by 8-foot lean-to, which was washed away by a flood only two years later. Then, with used lumber from a demolished house nearby, a larger building and in-ground cooler was built. That building stood from 1968 to 1991 when the new brick building - the present-day home of Beccari's Farm Market - was built. The Beccari's have been in farming since the early 1900's. The basis of the business had been wholesaling down at the strip in Pittsburgh. But in the early 1960's, Mary saw the coming change in the produce market. People wanted fresher and better produce than the grocery stores could supply. The farm market was a way to get the freshest produce to the consumer and cut out the middleman. Beccari's Farm is an IPM practicing sustainable farm. This approach we use to manage pests is a mixture of cultural, physical, biological, and chemical practices, which in turn produces a healthy, economical and environmentally friendly crop Bedner Greenhouse 315 Coleman Road, McDonald, PA 15057 Tel: 724-926-2541 Fax: 724-926-3518 russ@bednersgreenhouse.com http://www.bednersgreenhouse.com Bedner's Greenhouse is a family-owned business run by Bob and Sue Bedner, their son Russ and his wife Melanie.

To assure the freshest, most tender meat, our chickens are processed at seven to eight weeks of age. In order for these young chickens to develop healthfully, they are constantly monitored for temperature and diet in a strictly-controlled environment and not exposed to bad weather or diseases. At Bell & Evans, our chickens are raised without antibiotics on a proper, 100% natural, all-vegetable diet fortified with vitamins and minerals. Unlike many other chicken growers, we never feed our chicken junk food like rendered meat scraps; bone, feather or fish meal; or animal fats, oils, and grease.

Blue Rooster Farm is a family owned and operated beef and sheep farm located in the Ridge and Valley region of South Central Pennsylvania. Our sheep and beef rotationally graze on approximately 50 acres of pasture. During the winter they are fed grass and alfalpha hay purchased from neighboring farms. We do not fatten on corn or other grains, rather we aim to have our beef finish on grass in about 18 - 20 months. We also avoid the use of sythentic growth hormones and uncessesary antibiotics. In order to grow our beef quickly on grass and hay, we select for small-framed Black Angus cows and bulls. Our sheep are predominately North Country Cheviot - a hardy, flighty, stocky breed who give our Border Collie, Mac, a run for the money. Along with pasture-raised lamb and beef, we've experimented with raising free-range pigs. We are still learning how best to incorporate these intelligent, rooting, omivores into our pasture without creating too much disturbance and chaos on the farm. For now we are offering a limited amount of pork products. We have been farming according to organic standards since 1998 , however we are not USDA certified organic. BlueGrass Beef

Home » Projects BRADDOCK FARMS Braddock Farms is entering its third full growing season on a series of abandoned lots in the historic borough of Braddock! Located on a highly visible portion of the main business corridor, and set against the backdrop of the borough's last remaining steel mill, Braddock Farms is Grow Pittsburgh's largest demonstration farm. The vegetable production relies on raised bed construction, intensive planting techniques, and all-organic methods of growing. Flowers are also grown at a neighboring site and offered for sale. This summer Braddock Farms will grow a wide variety of vegetables and herbs, sell produce to local restaurants, and manage a farmer's market right next to Bell's Market on Braddock Ave on Thursdays from 2pm - 6pm. "My dream is for Braddock to become the center of urban agriculture in the region." --Mayor John Fetterman

Braddock Farms has received strong support from the Mayor's Office and Braddock Borough Council as a revitalization tool that will create job opportunities, transform vacant land into attractive greenspace, and increase local access to fresh nutritious foods. The long-term goal of Braddock Farms is to create an operation that is self-sustaining through the sale of food grown on the site. Braddock Farms has the potential to expand its operations in the near future. Grow Pittsburgh looks forward to its growth and development in the years to come.

Cedar Meadow Farm 679 Hilldale Road, Holtwood, PA 17532 Tel: 717-284-5152 Contact: Steve Groff steve@cedarmeadowfarm.com http://www.cedarmeadowfarm.com/default.html Steve Groff and his family, farm 200 acres of vegetables and crops on hilly land in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. He has pioneered the "Permanent Cover Cropping System", which includes no-tillage, cover crops, and effective crop rotations as a way to increase profits, enhance soil and water quality, and reduce pesticides. The cornerstone of this system is a unique emphasis on maintaining a permanent cover of crop residues and cover crops on the soil surface and having something living in the soil at all times. All vegetables and crops are then seeded or transplanted into the organic mulch. This permanent cover aids in weed control, has virtually eliminated soil erosion on the farms 3-17% slopes, and has increased soil and water quality. A passionate advocate for sustainable agriculture soil conservation, soil health, and food quality, Steve started no-tilling in the early '80s. He later began using cover crops as another soil conservation measure and now plants cover crops based on the succeeding crop that will planted the next year. Some fields have not been touched by any tillage equipment for over 30 years! Cedarland Farm 168 Slab Road, Delta, PA 17314 Tel: 717-862-3244

Contact: Amanda Grace cedarlandfarm@verizon.net http://www.cedarlandfarm.com We are a small family farm dedicate to raising Icelandic sheep as naturally as possible. We believe in nurturing the land by intensive grazing and rotation. The meat lambs are raised on grass/hay alone and with a custom mineral mix stay very healthy. We deworm only when needed, not on a set schedule. The Icelandic meat is very mild and many who don't love lamb enjoy it. We also sell registered breeding stock, fleeces, roving, handspun yarn and wool craft items. We occasionally have litters of English angora rabbits and sell the fiber as well. Grass-fed poultry and eggs are available on a limited basis.

The Andersen Family established the farm in 2001 on 40 acres purchased from the Fisher Family in an effort to preserve the beautiful site in scenic Charlestown Township, provide the community with fresh local produce, and encourage the establishment of a network of sustainable farms in the Phnixville area. Charlestown Cooperative Farm offers a complete variety of vegetables, flowers, and herbs to its members from June through November. Bourbon Red heritage turkeys are available to members during Thanksgiving. As a member you would pick up vegetables once a week at the farm from June through November. It's about 22-24 weeks, depending on the late or early frost in the fall. In the barn there is a blackboard that lists all the pickups for that day and the U-pick items as well. The share usually includes about 12-16 different items in quantities for a family of four (2 adults and 2 children). The U-pick items may have some limits but are available for you to pick that day or any other time during the week and half days on Saturdays. U-pick items include beans, peas, flowers, herbs, cherry tomats, paste tomats, soybeans, hot peppers, strawberries and raspberries as they come in season. Wonderfully fresh vegetables are hand-picked at the peak of ripeness, affording the best taste and highest nutritional content.

However, in 1980 the Crivellaros decided they needed to enter a new market and converted the dairy farm into a hog farm. Then, in 1989, Paul and Ember Crivellaro needed to expand the farm, so they moved a few miles west to Hamburg. There they purchased 55 acres of land and updated and expanded their hog farm. The Crivellaros saw an opportunity in the growing market of health foods and began raising chemical free hogs. Paul and Ember solely maintain and run the entire farm. They take special pride in their hogs, treating them as if they were their children. This is essential in providing the highest quality of pork imaginable. Today, Country Time Farm provides the top restaurants in Philadelphia with incredibly healthy and great tasting pork, including some heritage breeds.

At present, about 30 of the acres owned are actually farmed. Most of that acreage is taken up by apples, with about 2 acres of pear trees, 5 of peaches and nectarines, and an assortment of berries and prune plums. Dawson's Orchards also brokers watermelon and packs apples for wholesale trade. Janet still constantly works outside during spring, summer and fall.

Frankenfield Farm & Market 98 Allentown Road, Corner of Allentown and Nice Roads, Elroy, PA 18964 Tel: 215-721-1084 Contact: Andrew Frankenfield frankenfiedfarmmarket@comcast.net http://www.frankenfieldfarmmarket.com/ Frankenfield Farm Market is a family run vegetable, beef and crop farm. We grow ALL OUR OWN sweet corn, tomats and pumpkins. In season watermelon, potats, mums, straw and corn shocks are available. The farm grows timothy, alfalfa, and grass hay in small square bales and round bales for the Augus Beef herd and as well as to sell for horses or other livestock. In addition to hay we grow field corn, soybeans and rye for use on our farm. Rye straw is also available for sale in small square bales for landscaping or decoration. Call or email us for current availability and price. Our Farming Methods: We practice sustainable conservation farming to provide the best possible fresh produce to our customers. The key focus in our fields is to use the No-Till farming method along with cover crops and crop rotation. In No-Till farming the soil is not tilled with any kind of plow or tiller. We harvest our crops and immediately plant a cover crop to protect the soil over the winter and capture and hold nutrients for the next season's crop. We plant the cover crop either by broadcasting the seed on the soil surface or using a no-till seed drill to place the seeds in the ground with little soil disturbance. The following spring we spray the cover crop with Round up to stop it's growth and then plant our crops in the dead cover crop with a planter that only cuts a slice in the soil, drops the seed and closes the slot back up. The goal on our fields is to always have a living and growing crop in them. The benefits of no-tilling and cover crops is that there is little if any soil erosion, the soil has more microbes and earthworms, it holds moisture longer in dry spells and is more the way soils are in nature. There are no plows in nature unless you consider an earthworm a plow, which we have TONS of now that we have been no-tilling for 7 years. When you plow the crop residue under you bury the earthworms food, by leaving the crop residue and cover crops on the soils surface you are providing a food for the earthworm and in return they are making new soil for us and their channels which we have measured to go down nearly THREE feet provide our crops

a easy path to the most important thing in the summer's heat, WATER. In 2008 all 20 acres of our sweet corn was planted using no-till and I was very pleased with its ability to handle the drought stress this summer. All 5 acres of my pumpkins were planted into rye that was nearly 6 feet tall and rolled down flat in May and in June I planted my pumpkins directly into the thick straw mat of rye which helped to control weed and most importantly held moisture in the very dry periods in July and August.

In 2000, Good Harvest Farms added hydroponic lettuce and herbs to the mix. The only way to get fresher produce is to grow it in your own back yard.

Hails Family Farm RR2 Box 20 , Wyalusing, PA 18853 http://www.hailsfamilyfarm.com/ The Hails family now owns 50 acres and farms a total of 450 acres. The cow herd consists of Ayreshire, Normande, Jersey/Holstein cross, Jersey and Brown Swiss. The cows' feed program is grass-based, meaning that their main diet is hay, baleage, silage, and pasture spring through late fall. The cows are milked in a parlor and are intensively rotationally grazed spring through fall. The cows enjoy being outside even in the winter. The cows are fed a 16% mixed ration and each cow receives only 5-10 pounds of grain a day - even less in the pasture months. Most conventional dairies feed their cows in excess of 40 pounds a day. The grain is free of bone meal (animal parts) and BSTs (hormones that cause an animal to milk like her lactation has just begun). PRODUCTS The cow milk is processed at the Grade A processing plant located on the Hails' farm. The milk is a full-fat milk that ds not need to be "fortified with vitamins A and D" as the Hails' milk retains all of its natural vitamins; the vitamins are not stripped out and then put back in with synthetic vitamins like so many brands. This milk is of superior quality and received an excellent rating from The Cornucopia Institute in Wisconsin. The Hails' milk is not homogenized, nor is it ultra-pasteurized, making it the closest product to raw milk you can get. You will notice the "cream on top" and it's delicious! This excellent milk and feta cheese is shipped to This Land Is Your Land and is then distributed to fine health food stores along the East coast, from Atlanta, Georgia to Newport, Rhode Island.

Matt Severson, who has gained a following for his baked goods, is now at the stand next to us on Mondays. We grow varieties for the best taste and color, not because they ship well. We're always trialing new varieties, but the old heirlooms are a particular favorite. Since I start tomato plants from seed in a passive solar greenhouse, I can grow tomats like Brandywine, Orange Banana, Black Krim, and Green Zebra. I also grow rows of the favorite cherry (Sunsugar/Sungold) and every year try a few new types. Our other specialties are salad mix and a variety of greens all year, and baby summer squash in all colors and shapes. And of course there are the cut sunflowers and the wheatgrass. The vegetables being a bit late in Susquehanna County, we often have a wide assortment of potted herbs and container plants early in the year. They get pushed off the truck as more vegetables and flowers mature, or once they're too big to carry around! We'll have sprouts (lentils, wheatgrass, pea shoots), potted herbs, flowers, foliage plants and sometimes landscaping shrubs.

As today's farms become large commercial operations, we looked for a way to keep a small farm where our animals could receive the best of care, and we could have the satisfaction of bringing a quality dairy product direct from our family to yours. At our farm, clean, comfortable cows are fed a diet of the best hay and grain Jim can find. Because of the special care our cows receive, we rarely have any sick animals. However, because of the significant value of some of these animals, we do on occasion use antibiotics to ensure their complete recovery if they become ill. For this reason we are not considered a true organic farm. However, the milk from any animal receiving antibiotics is discarded until she is tested, and found to be free of all antibiotic residues. We also do not use any pesticides or herbicides on our pastures. Our cows do not receive RBST or growth hormones. They graze the quiet pastures on our farm and lounge under the fans if they get too hot. What a life! We believe the final product is only as good as what gs into it. Our 20 varieties of raw milk cheeses are made from only high quality milk, salt, cultures and enzymes. Their taste will reflect the quality and care that gs into all we do. No factories here! Heather Ridge Farm & Creamery invites you to visit our farm and discover for yourself a real, working dairy and creamery. With country hospitality, we host individuals, families, clubs and tour groups on our farm. Visit our gift shop, which boasts our 15 varieties of specialty cheese, homemade bread, local honey, maple syrup, candy, eggs, grass-fed beef, and gift baskets. We are open every day from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Stop by anytime, if you are a large group or a tour please call ahead to schedule visits.

Schuler purchased Hillside Farms from B.J.'s mother in 1990. The farm had been in the family since B.J.'s grandfather purchased it in the early 1940's. B.J's father had farmed it, raising Black Angus cattle and crops until he passed away in 1988. Not wanting to keep the farm herself, B.J.'s mother started negotiations with a developer who wanted to turn the farm into a nine lot subdivision. The sale unexpectedly fell through leaving B.J.'s mother out in the cold. Gary & B.J. stepped in and bought the farm. Their first attempt at farming was with seedling trees which died the first winter when mice chewed up the roots. The second winter Gary read about buffalo and went to visit a local buffalo farmer. He was hooked on the majestic animals. They purchased seven heifer calves in 1992 and a bull in 1993. Their first calf crop came in 1994.

We are blessed to be caretakers of the farm. Our children have always been home-schooled and each one is an integral part of the day-to-day operations. Each one has his or her own area of "expertise" and responsibility. Their classroom is not only their school desk but also with the animals, out in the pastures or gardens, on the tractor, unloading hay, collecting eggs, feeding animals, helping deliver a newborn goat, riding horses--the possibilities are endless! We are so thankful for the many opportunities we have to learn about animals and the nature around us. We strive for high quality goat's milk and cheese. All of our cheeses are made on the farm with many varieties available. We also make creamy delicious goat milk fudge. A new product this year is kefir, which is a cultured milk drink, similar to the taste of buttermilk. Kefir is high in beneficial enzymes to give you a "boost" and also provides healthy bacteria for the digestive tract. We also make some cow's milk cheeses. His Kids Dairy raises its animals with the purest natural feeds (without growth hormones / antibiotics) and also provides green pasture. The goats provide for us delicious milk from which flavorful cheeses and creamy fudge are made. Dairy products are available at the farm; please call

Our cows are raised in a humane and healthy way. They are not confined to a barn, instead they are allowed to graze freely on lush pastures. We do not use rBST on our cows and we do not dock their tails. We have not used any herbicides, pesticides, or chemical fertilizers on our farm in twenty-five years. We use organic practices on our farm but we are not certified organic since we purchase some feed locally. In February 2001 we started making aged raw milk cheeses in our small, licensed on-farm cheese plant. In February 2006 we added a pasteurizer and started making fresh products such as ricotta, soft cheese, and yogurt. All our cheeses are hand made using traditional, time-honored methods. We use only fresh milk, live cultures, and calf rennet. Our ricotta, quark, and yogurt are made without rennet. Since our cows are fed their natural diet of grass and hay our cheese is a natural creamy yellow color. As the seasons change the color of the cheese will vary depending on how much fresh grass our cows consume.

We were certified organic for over 15 years beginning in the early '90s helping to develop the Certified Organic label in Pennsylvania as charter members of Pennsylvania Certified Organic. Since then our focus on "Green Everyday" Beef has taken us above and beyond organic certification standards. Since most of our customers are private individuals who know us and our farming practices well, a third party inspection process seemed unnecessary. We welcome your visit for personal verification of our Beyond Organic practices! Livengood vegetables and meats are offered at four Philadelphia farmers markets as well as direct from the farm. We encourage a call before stopping by the farm as a full time farm stand is still in the dream phase. Our cattle help retired farmers and landowners keep their beautiful landscape in farming. If you live nearby, we expect you to stop by to meet our family and see how living on the edge of farmland loss is possible with your help. We've also experienced raising meat birds on grass and have found the results delightful! We will be doing more broilers this season.

Here we raise alfalfa and mixed grass hay along with about 10 acres of oats annually. We use this hay to feed our livestock and we sell it to horse breeders.

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 tomats 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.

We will provide rustic housing with access to kitchen, bath and laundry, fresh produce and a stipend based on Farmers' Market sales.

The farm consists of a typical old farm house, a late model single level, a 14,000 square foot barn, a small green house and other small outbuildings in a beautiful setting, and is a registered wildlife refuge.

Because the organization is a non profit corporation it is conceivable and possible that the cost of product could be lower than originally stated. The amount of participation and assistance rendered by members could also lower or hold down cost of operation which could also reduce pricing. Because Misty Morning Farm is an instructional/educational farm some social events will be held from time to time which should prove to be fun as well as informative. Because the higher costs of organic food is rapidly causing some levels of the population to be excluded from the "good -for-you-foods" , we are fast becoming a nation of good (pure) food for the "haves" and poor quality contaminated/chemically tainted food for the "have nots". Our approach, via the non-profit concept, is an attempt to bridge the gap and see all natural foods available to a larger portion of our society.

Ned quit milking cows a year earlier because of low milk prices and the frustration that there was no system by which farmers could sell milk organically. Ned and Norman teamed up with four organic dairy farmers in Lancaster County, PA and created a whole system in which grass-fed organic milk could be produced, transported, processed and packaged, independent of the huge, volume based milk industry. Strict adherence to organic principles and a dedication to high quality were the rules, which Ned, Norman and the farmers demanded of each other. Natural by Nature P.O. Box 464 , West Grove, PA 19390 Tel: 610-268-6962 Fax: 610-268-4172 ndpc@kennett.net Cows are meant to eat grass, not grain. Pastured cows are healthier and less stressed. At NDP, we strive to make fresh pasture the main diet for our cows. Our farmers own and operate small family farms in Lancaster County, PA. The milk from grass-fed cows contains higher levels of Conjugated Linoleic Acid (CLA) than that of cows fed grain. CLA is an Omega 6 Fatty Acid, which studies have shown, helps in disease protection. Grass-fed milk naturally contains higher levels of Beta-carotene, Vitamin A, and Vitamin E because grass itself contains more of these nutrients than grain. Consuming grass-fed dairy

Jim and Moie Kimball Crawford own and operate New Morning Farm, a 95-acre certified-organic vegetable farm in south-central Pennsylvania. The Crawfords have farmed organically for over 30 years. New Morning Farm now produces approximately 40 different crops, all certified organic. Crops include berries and herbs in addition to most standard garden vegetables. The farm employs, besides the family, one or two year-round helpers and approximately 15 seasonal workers and apprentices. The farming apprenticeship program is well-developed and has helped a number of aspiring growers to get started in farming. Over the years, the Crawfords have built a many-faceted, successful direct-marketing system. They started and operated a roadside stand in years past. They have organized two now-well-established farmers markets and helped found a wholesale marketing cooperative with a group of growers Tuscarora Organic Growers. New Morning Farm markets (both wholesale and retail) various locally-produced foods year-round in addition to its own produce.

Ojala Farm Clover Creek Cheese Cellar 5161 Clover Creek Road, Williamsburg, PA 16693 Tel: 814-832-3755 Contact: David and Terry Rice info@clovercreekcheese.com http://www.clovercreekcheese.com We sell raw milk from the farm, grass-based beef, and eggs from pastured poultry. We make our raw milk into 10 varieties of cheese. Our cheese is not another push button cheese. Each vat is filled slowly, using a stainless steel pipeline direct from the milking area as the cows are being milked. Cultures are then carefully added and the milk is gently stirred by hand, not beaten by stainless steel paddles. After the right amount of time, rennet is added following the age old tradition of making great farmstead cheese. After coagulation, the curds are quickly cut, allowed to rest and heal, and then gently stirred by hand. The curds are eventually packed into molds and pressed by hanging weights for the allotted time. Cheeses are then aged in one of our climate-controlled cellars, on locally grown sugar maple shelving. Instead of suffocating them in plastic, they grow a natural rind that gives additional character and flavor to the cheese. At just the right time, we remove them, package them, and sell them to discriminating customers. Welcome to the taste and quality of true farmstead artisan cheese! We hope you enjoy our cheese as much as we enjoy making it! Organic Acres 3539 Scenic Road, Gordonville, PA 17529 Tel: 717-768-3364 The chickens are available from May to November.

The farm boasts 112 acres of rolling pasture, with lovely views in all directions. A traditional red Pennsylvania Bank barn, pond, and classic white farmhouse complete the picture. Owens Farm started on 13 acres in New Hampshire. The family raised livestock for their own needs, tending their animals in a natural setting and avoiding chemicals and growth stimulants. It was only a matter of time before neighbors approached them, asking if they could raise and sell some extra animals. People were learning about the pitfalls of industrial agriculture, and seeking pasture-raised meat for their families. A business was born. By 2007, the Owens family was ready for a larger farm. A two-year search led to the state of Pennsylvania and the town of Sunbury. Caroline is a former Vocational Agriculture teacher who worked in marketing communications and the equestrian travel business before starting her family. She holds a B.S. in Animal Science/Agricultural Education from Cornell University and an M.B.A. from Boston University. David is an engineer now running his own database and software consulting business.

Please check our web page for more information, or e-mail (You can phone us but we are hard to reach by phone). Note: We are no longer OCIA Certified Organic. We were for many years, but because of the extra expenses involved in being certified organic, we dropped our certification, and the last certification we had expired at the end of November, 2008. Instead of being "Certified Organic," in the Summer of 2008 we switched to "Certified Naturally Grown (CNG)," which is a grassroots alternative to being certified organic. It is much more reasonably priced for small farms like ours. The way we grow our crops hasn't changed though, and we still grow our crops organically and to the highest possible standards. Our "Certified Naturally Grown" certification is current and we will gladly show you our certificate upon request. THANK YOU for your support and patronage.

Shared Earth Farm CSA 131 State Road, Mechanicsburg, PA 17050 Tel: 717-697-0762 Contact: Amy Leber amleber@comcast.net http://www.sharedearthfarm.com/ Our season usually begins around the last week of May. After that, once a week for 22 weeks you come to our farm on the evening you chose at the onset of the season. You pick out your share—the portion of the harvest that you receive weekly. There are three different sizes of shares available this year. Whole shares feed four omnivores or two vegetarians for about one week. They usually contain about 8-12 different items. Partial shares feed two omnivores or one vegetarian for about one week. They usually contain 5-9 different items. Sampler shares can supplement home gardens or feed one person. Each week you will receive 4 or 5 different items. Most of what comprises your share is determined by what is in ready to eat that week, and how much of it we pick for you. We think that ds not give members enough control over menu planning for the week. This year we will implement a “your choice table” where you may select a certain number of the any of the items there. It will usually be comprised of the more odd things and not the favorites, that everyone begs for like carrots and lettuce. For example, we have two bundles of yard-long beans that we are trialing, some chard, some escarole, extra tomats, okra, and an edible weed. You can pick two of those to be included in your share that week. Each week the amounts and variety available will change, but the concept will be the same. We think this will be fairly simple to manage, and give you more control of your menus. Each share size comes with pick your own flowers and herbs opportunities as they are available. We can't guarantee flowers each week, since we put most of our efforts into growing a big variety of vegetables and fruits. But for all you flower lovers, summer and fall typically sport some decent

Farming in the 'Hood Over the past several years, a new approach to farming has emerged. One that is grounded in local food systems and has a close connection to the consumer. One that is crafted around ecological processes and minimal capital investment. One that uses highly sophisticated rotational planting patterns to raise yields, reduce pest pressure, and build soil fertility. And it is happening right here at Somerton Tanks Farm, a demonstration urban farm which is pushing beyond the boundaries of traditional agriculture and taking it to places where conventional

wisdom says fruits and vegetables do not belong. In its fourth year of operation, using the SPIN Farming method, we produced over $68,000 in gross sales growing high value vegetables on a half-acre—in Philadelphia, the fifth largest city in the U.S. By pushing the physical and philosophical boundaries of agriculture, it is achieving a level of productivity and financial success that many thought impossible. And it's getting others to view the role of agriculture—where and how it is practiced—differently.

Tussock Sedge Farm 1239 Rt 113 , Blooming Glen, PA 18911 Tel: 215-453-2901 Fax: 215-660-4962 Contact: Henry Rosenberger, Maryanne http://www.tussocksedgefarm.com/ Our beef is distinguished from beef you can buy at the supermarket by what we do not put in it, and what we do put in it. We do not feed or implant our steers with hormones to accelerate their growth like the beef you buy in the supermarkets. As a result, our grain-fed steers require one to two more months to fatten than supermarket steers before they reach butchering weight. Nor do we give our steers antibiotics in their feed (or any other way) to keep them healthy the way mass cattle producers do. Instead, we rely on natural foods, clean barns, lush pastures and time to keep our steers healthy and growing. We can make these guarantees because we control all aspects of the production cycle. Since 1995 we have run a small-scale cow and calving operation that yields about 100 to 120 calves each year. During their first summer, the calves roam free on Tussock Sedge's green pastures with their

mothers. Each year we fatten the grown steers on our farm using corn, hay, and silage, most of which is grown on our farm.

So you might be asking, "What exactly is pastured pork and why should I be eating it instead of what I can buy in the grocery store?" You hear a lot about "grass-fed and pastured" meat products these days and maybe you are a little confused. Sometimes it is hard to understand the difference between grass-fed and pastured. Is it 100% grass-fed? What is "pastured"? Our pigs could be considered "grass-fed" because they do get a diet consisting of grass, but they are not 100% grass-fed. We use the term "pastured" when referring to our pigs to help minimize confusion. They do get the benefits of fresh air, sunshine and grass! Everything on the farm, from babies and their mothers to those ready for market, get the advantages of being raised on pasture. Here in Mercer County, PA we are fortunate to have reclaimed strip-mining ground to put into production for our farming needs. Our sows love to munch on grass while they are waiting for their grain and supplement rations. We are working on building our pastures so the pigs can get more of their nutrition from grass which will help in reducing the amount of grains used. If the Omega-3 fatty acids and vitamin E in grass-fed beef increase, why not in our pork that has been raised on pasture! Even our farrowing and nurseries get the benefits of the fresh air and sunshine. The mother's each have their own individual huts in which they farrow. The babies stay with their mother's between 4-5 weeks until they are placed in one of our portable "Little ones" out running around having a grand time! nursery units. The pigs stay for 5-6 weeks before they are moved out to pasture fenced with electric. They spend the rest of their days outside enjoying the natural environment that God created for them. Pigs raised outdoors tend to stay healthier, not needing the low level antibiotics used in confinement situations, which in turn ds lead to much lower stress levels. All these: fresh air, sunshine, grass, exercise, no antibiotics and low stress, contribute to our Fresh Air Pork being lean, yet delicious and flavorful! Our customers tell us that it tastes like pork should and what the older generation remembers! We do raise the real "natural pork"! Our pigs as you can see are raised in their natural environment, not in a confinement system and then sent off to have the meat minimally processed so that they may call it "natural pork". In a world where buzzwords are what is all about, we believe it is very important to be on the same page with your customer. The best thing to do is to get to know the farmer and their product!

While successful, he felt the real goal should be selling his crops directly to the consumer. His small roadside stand soon grew much bigger. With the help of his wife Cindy, Good Harvest Farms continued to grow and they eventually joined with the Lancaster County Farmer's Market. The business has grown 10-fold since 1990 - mainly because Chris listens to what his customers want, and that's the freshest fruits and vegetables available. In 2000, Good Harvest Farms added hydroponic lettuce and herbs to the mix. The only way to get fresher produce is to grow it in your own back yard. "Being Fresh is our Business," and we will continue to grow what our customers want.

Somerton Tanks Farm 2220 Kater Street, Philadelphia, PA 19146 rchristensen@infocommercegroup.com http://www.somertontanksfarm.org/

Farming in the 'Hood Over the past several years, a new approach to farming has emerged. One that is grounded in local food systems and has a close connection to the consumer. One that is crafted around ecological processes and minimal capital investment. One that uses highly sophisticated rotational planting patterns to raise yields, reduce pest pressure, and build soil fertility. And it is happening right here at Somerton Tanks Farm, a demonstration urban farm which is pushing beyond the boundaries of traditional agriculture and taking it to places where conventional wisdom says fruits and vegetables do not belong. In its fourth year of operation, using the SPIN Farming method, we produced over $68,000 in gross sales growing high value vegetables on a half-acre—in Philadelphia, the fifth largest city in the U.S. By pushing the physical and philosophical boundaries of agriculture, it is achieving a level of productivity and financial success that many thought impossible. And it's getting others to view the role of agriculture—where and how it is practiced—differently. Support us in staking out a new place for locally-based farming in today's global agriculture industry.

John J. Jeffries 300 Harrisburg Ave., Lancaster, PA 17603 Tel: 717.431.3307 Contact: Chef Cavanaugh info@johnjjeffries.com http://www.johnjjeffries.com Located in the heart of Lancaster city in an old tobacco warehouse, John J. Jeffries' unique approach to dining is based on our belief of a sustainable Lancaster and a local food-based economy. The restaurant is named after an actual tobacco inspector from the late 1800s, whose signed inspection stamp (November 5, 1890) was found in the floor beams during renovations. Our ties to historic Lancaster County don't stop there. During his first two months in Lancaster, Chef Cavanaugh visited small, family farms dotting the countryside to source the perfect ingredients. He was invigorated to find that those farms are as passionate about growing produce and raising healthy livestock, as the chefs at John J. Jeffries are about cooking it. One trip to our restaurant and you'll see that we have designed our menu on local, seasonal, sustainable and organic agriculture. We invite you to join us and taste the difference of local “farm to table” sustainable cuisine.

Our menus, which change often, reflect the use of traditional cooking techniques still prevalent in Italy, and are dependent on the availability of fresh, seasonal ingredients. Several trips to Italy have given me an appreciation and respect for the cuisine. Each of Italy's 20 regions has its own unique culinary tradition, but the common thread that unites them all is an emphasis on uncomplicated dishes that highlight the freshness and superior quality of the ingredients. This simple formula has, happily, seen a resurgence in recent years thanks to America's renewed interest in real foods. We have been shopping locally for ingredients over the last twenty years in Carlisle and have established many great partnerships with local

farmers and purveyors. Combining these local products with the best available olive oils, cheeses, meats and pastas from Italy allows us to create a most authentic dining experience. None of this would be possible without our great staff and our many wonderful guests who support our efforts to provide this unique dining experience.

HISTORY OF SHANNOPIN COUNTRY CLUB In April of 1919, when the stresses and strains of WorId War I were beginning to dissipate and the need to develop wholesome recreation as part of the resumption of normal living was obvious, three friends decided they should take up golf again. D. H. Rlofs, R. H. Houston and J. L. McBride thereupon embarked on the search for a site for a new country club which brought them to the Jackman Farm adjacent to Ben Avon Heights, a spot they found ideal for the purpose. A meeting was held July 1, 1919, attended by a growing body of recruits with kindred spirits and the necessary enthusiasm to commence such an ambitious undertaking. As a result of that meeting

Page 288

pennsylvania guide: restaurants
options were obtained to purchase the Jackman Farm and parts of the South Penn Oil Company's property adjacent to it. After more meetings, the Kilbuck Land Company was organized on December 13, 1919 for the purpose of purchasing the land. A country club organization was substituted for the Kilbuck Land Company on January 10, 1920, with John I. Thompson as its first president. Land acquisition for the venture began in March. History buffs within the membership studied early Indian records for Western Pennsylvania in their search for a suitable name for the Club. The great Chief Shannopin of the Delaware tribe had his village, which bore his name, on the southern bank of the Allegheny River near Washington's Crossing. Since he was said to have been gifted with eloquent speech, good sense and sincerity, the group determined that his name would be preserved for posterity in the name of their new Club. The golf course opened for play in September of 1920. The century old Jackman homestead was renovated and became the Club's social center until the Clubhouse was completed in September of 1922. Two tennis courts were also built in 1922 on the site of our present swimming pool, which was constructed in 1946. The original golf course was only nine holes, covering approximately the same territory as our front nine today, but an additional nine were added after the acquisition of more land. Since those early days, Shannopin has been a growing, progressive social institution. The original Clubhouse was expanded in 1964 with a major addition to the rear of the original structure, which included the main dining room, cocktail lounge and the mixed grill area adjacent to the main ballroom. In early 1979, the new entrance to the Club from the members' parking lot was added. In December of 1980, a two-story addition was completed, which expanded the kitchen and provided a new bag room. The golf course has undergone many changes over the years, including the construction in 1976 of a computerized underground watering system. Shannopin went through its most dynamic change in the early 1990's when approximately four million dollars was spent changing both the interior and exterior of the house facilities. In 1998, we added a bathhouse, course turnaround and snack bar adjacent to the swimming area. Shannopin's Clubhouse remains a stately but charming and comfortable replica of an English country home. Visitors to our golf course continue to be amazed by its natural beauty and isolation, its superb condition and the sheer enjoyment to be derived from playing it. However, bricks, mortar, sod and sand are not Shannopin's primary resources. The Club is sustained by the friendliness and affability of its members and their obvious enjoyment of each other. It will always be easy to walk in and get a game at Shannopin. A Day to Remember Is there a wedding in your future? Shannopin provides the ultimate in wedding arrangements.

Beccari Farms 5095 Thoms Run Road, Oakdale, PA 15071 Tel: 412-221-8768 vegepete@beccaris.com http://www.beccaris.com/index.html In 1963, Mary Beccari started The Beccari's Farm Market. It began with a bushel of apples that she sold "self-serve" style from a picnic bench. This first stand lasted for about three years. It then evolved into a small 8-foot by 8-foot lean-to, which was washed away by a flood only two years later. Then, with used lumber from a demolished house nearby, a larger building and in-ground cooler was built. That building stood from 1968 to 1991 when the new brick building - the present-day home of Beccari's Farm Market - was built. The Beccari's have been in farming since the early 1900's. The basis of the business had been wholesaling down at the strip in Pittsburgh. But in the early 1960's, Mary saw the coming change in the produce market. People wanted fresher and better produce than the grocery stores could supply. The farm market was a way to get the freshest produce to the consumer and cut out the middleman. Beccari's Farm is an IPM practicing sustainable farm. This approach we use to manage pests is a mixture of cultural, physical, biological, and chemical practices, which in turn produces a healthy,

Heather Ridge Creamery 269 Bryant Road, Wellsboro, PA 16901 Tel: 570-723-1026 Contact: Jim and Miffie Kahler jimmyk@quik.com Heather Ridge Creamery is located in beautiful Tioga County, near the Pennsylvania Grand Canyon. Our small family farm makes cheese from the milk of our 30 prize-winning Holstein and Jersey cows. As today's farms become large commercial operations, we looked for a way to keep a small farm where our animals could receive the best of care, and we could have the satisfaction of bringing a quality dairy product direct from our family to yours. At our farm, clean, comfortable cows are fed a diet of the best hay and grain Jim can find. Because of the special care our cows receive, we rarely have any sick animals. However, because of the significant value of some of these animals, we do on occasion use antibiotics to ensure their complete recovery if they become ill. For this reason we are not considered a true organic farm. However, the milk from any animal receiving antibiotics is discarded until she is tested, and found to be free of all antibiotic residues. We also do not use any pesticides or herbicides on our pastures. Our cows do not receive RBST or growth hormones. They graze the quiet pastures on our farm and lounge under the fans if they get too hot. What a life! We believe the final product is only as good as what gs into it. Our 20 varieties of raw milk cheeses are made from only high quality milk, salt, cultures and enzymes. Their taste will reflect the quality and care that gs into all we do. No factories here! Heather Ridge Farm & Creamery invites you to visit our farm and discover for yourself a real, working dairy and creamery. With country hospitality, we host individuals, families, clubs and tour groups on our farm. Visit our gift shop, which boasts our 15 varieties of specialty cheese, homemade bread, local honey, maple syrup, candy, eggs, grass-fed beef, and gift baskets. We are open every day from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Stop by anytime, if you are a large group or a tour please call ahead to schedule visits.

I am not your usual health food store owner. I don't have any degrees in nutrition or alternative treatments with herbs and supplements. What I do have is a little bit of life experience and a lot of compassion for those who have special dietary needs. When my daughter was six years old she started having some stomach and intestinal problems. As she got older, her condition worsened. Almost every time she ate she got sick. At times she was in pure agony. It was heartbreaking for me, as a mother. For six years we went to different doctors and hospitals, enduring many different tests, searching for an answer to my daughters problems. Finally, we were guided to a natural health practitioner. It was discovered that due to many bouts with ear infections, the antibiotic treatments had caused a yeast overgrowth through out her stomach and intestines. Many of the foods she was eating just made the problem worse. She was put on the strictest diet for one month; no wheat, dairy, sugar, or chocolate. Even certain fruits and vegetables were forbidden because of the hidden mold on them, which would promote yeast growth. After slowly introducing these foods back into her diet, we found that the worst triggers were wheat and sugar. What an adjustment to make! The search and experimentation began for alternative foods that actually taste good. It has been twelve years now, and we have found many alternatives. A little over a year ago we moved to this area, and found there were no stores offering the foods we needed. We got tired of making the long trip to other locations. So I thought, why not open my own store? This would be a great benefit to me and to many others in the area. After six months of much thought and many prayers, I felt led by God to take the plunge into the business world. I have found that I can share what I know from experience, with my customers. In turn, I am learning a great deal from them. I share in the excitement of my customers as they find the many good foods they can eat without getting sick. I know what that feeling is like. It is very fulfilling for me to be able to provide them with the variety they are looking for.

Many times the milk you drink today was on the farm yesterday! Try our regular or reduced-fat milk, buttermilk, ice cream, sour cream, flavord milk, half and half, cottage cheese and more. Vale Wood Farms' dairy store is located in the countryside, right by our processing plant and dairy farm at 518 Vale Wood Road. At our store, you can:

• Purchase any of our quality dairy products • Enjoy a fresh dipped ice cream cone, milkshake, or sundae • Buy other Vale Wood Farms' products, such as T-shirts, hats, insulated milk boxes, or milk bottles; and • Enjoy the country scenery!

Weaver's Way Co-op 559 Carpenter Lane, Philadelphia, PA 19119 Tel: 215-843-2350 weaversw@weaversway.org http://weaversway.coop/index.php Weavers Way Co-op, at 559 Carpenter Lane, provides a friendly shopping environment and a wide variety of quality foods, at prices lower than supermarkets. Members realize savings in several ways. The Co-op is owned by its members, so there is no owner taking profits off the top. Because members must work in the store six hours a year, a substantial portion of the Co-op's labor costs are defrayed. And by purchasing many items in bulk, and either selling them in bulk bins or repackaged by volunteers, Weavers Way keeps prices even lower. Whole Foods Plymouth Meeting 500 W.
