Internship information
General Farm Description: Spring Creek Farm is situated on 125 acres of rolling farmland with a spring-fed stream in Solebury Township, Bucks County, PA. As an all-natural, regenerative farm we are committed to supplying the local community with fresh produce of the highest quality and nutrition while simultaneously restoring the natural ecology of the land. 2020 marks the first year for the operation of the CSA at Spring Creek. We are aiming to launch with about 60 members, supplying a variety of vegetables weekly from June to October to members and local produce outlets. The farm also produces certified organic eggs and limited amounts of grass-fed / grass-finished beef available to our customers. Additional fields will be opened to vegetable and crop production as natural fertility is expanded. Join us in making a difference in our community, our soil, and our food.
