Internship informationGeneral Farm Description: We are a small, certified organic farm located in New Hope, PA. We grow high quality produce, specializing in heirloom varieties and year-round production for a CSA, farmer’s markets, and restaurants. We offer custom box shares, which in addition to vegetables includes our own canned goods, bread from our on-farm bakery, and other local specialties. In 2022 we have plans to open a new space where CSA members can pick up their shares, and the community can experience cooking and eating local, sustainable food right at the source. We will be producing artisanal aperitivo using herbs and vegetables grown on the farm and offering on-farm dinners.
