We are a 501c3 non-profit farm dedicated to increasing public understanding of sustainable food systems. Our mission can be best summarized as “Grow-Give-Teach”. We grow organic, seasonal vegetables in Horsham, PA. We give thousands of pounds of fresh produce to local food cupboards, helping to provide nutritious food to community members who are food insecure. We teach the community about the value of sustainable agriculture, where their food comes from, and educate the next generation of farmers.

ABOUT OURCSA PROGRAM
Pennypack Farm’s CSA is set up to provide high quality, local food, value, choice and an on-farm experience to its members. We offer both Summer and Winter CSA shares so our members can enjoy our produce year-round.
Our CSA pickup is at our farm and offers many seasonal choices. Summer members also get opportunities to pick some of their own strawberries, beans, cherry tomatoes, and more! We offer add-ons of flower picking and a fruit share from a local orchard.

August is the busiest time of the entire year on the farm. We often call it 'second spring' since we spend much of the month planting crops for fall and winter. And while the actual spring is also a very busy season, "second spring" is coupled with the added...
The Case for Cabbage
Cabbage made its first appearance in our CSA as of last week. It has quickly become one of my favorite crops to grow and to harvest, for no reason other than the pure joy it evokes in me these days. However, for most of my life, I never really thought much of...
