Featured Farmer: Blackberry Meadows Farm
Let tomato season begin! This week at Farmers at Phipps from 2:30 – 6:30 p.m., Blackberry Meadows Farm is bringing a limited amount of sun gold cherry tomatoes. Blackberry Meadows is an 85-acre farm in Natrona Heights, Pa. It first obtained its Certified Organic status in 1992 and was the first farm in the region to offer shares as part of a CSA. The CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) program allows members to receive fresh farm produce every week through the entire season on a subscription basis, and their innovative Garden Share program gives members the chance to "grow their own CSA" using seedlings made available throughout the growing season. If you enjoy the produce you get at our market, ask about both programs, as they make great investments in local farming!
