Founded in 2003, Pennypack Farm is a 501(c)3 non-profit diversified vegetable farm growing with organic and regenerative practices in Horsham, PA (eastern Montgomery County). The work we do on the farm is centered around our mission to Grow, Give, and Teach.
Grow: Growing on 13 acres, we run a 380-member Summer CSA from the end of May through early November and a 180-member Winter CSA from late November through early March. We also attend the Ambler Farmers’ Market weekly. We grow over 150 different varieties of 60 different crops, aiming to provide our community with high quality and nutrient-dense produce consistently throughout the year. Building our soil’s health and fertility is the foundation of our farming practices, and we strive to be good stewards of the land by using regenerative methods to ensure the farm’s productivity for many years to come.
Give: An integral piece of our farm’s mission is increasing accessibility to high quality organically grown, local produce in our community. As part of our Produce Giving Program we donate produce weekly to four different food pantry partners and also work with other local hunger relief organizations throughout the year. In 2020, we donated 20,000 lbs of produce to our community as part of this program.
Teach: The farm focuses on educating the next generation of farmers through our summer internship and apprenticeship programs. We also teach our community the importance of sustainable, locally grown food through volunteer opportunities, weekly newsletters, and workshops.
