Did you know that human nutrition comes from the soil? Microbiology interact with plants to produce foods that are healthy and resilient against disease. This combination results in the formation of nearly all the vitamins and minerals we need to thrive.
In these strange times, many folks are realizing that our food system is NOT secure, and NOT healthy. Growing your own food (especially vegetables), by making the investment your soil's health and connecting with a local farm are two great ways to bring stability to your life, improve your health and save money at the store.
At Blackberry Meadows, we BOTH grow food and empower the community to do the same. We are here to provide our neighbors with a higher octane fuel for their family.
Some benefits you will see:
Real farm. We are located within 30 mins of Pittsburgh and encourage our community to dig in the soil, roll in the compost and wade through manure with us. Dirty boots are a must.
Real food. Certified organic, borrowing heavily from permaculture, biodynamic, and sustainable best practices, we have a strong focus on NUTRITION. Unlike other farms, our goal isn't quantity, it's quality. We have a strong belief that our collective lack of nutrition is directly related to the fiber+water sold in stores. We've invested heavily in our soil to ensure better nutrition in every bite.
Real farmers. Our hands are in the soil daily. We are the people who raise your food. There are no migrant laborers, no wholesale purchases back-filling orders, no middleman, no gimmicks. There is always an open invite for our community to join us here to see what we do, buy what you need and learn how to do it for yourselves.
For 25 years, Blackberry Meadows Farm has been producing Certified Organic and Verified nonGMO foods for our neighbors and community. In return, the oldest (and longest running) active CSA program in the region has been keeping the farm in business by assuming the fixed-cost risks of our farming operation... Exactly what a true CSA program was meant to achieve.
Take time to relish what it means to be an integral part of cultivating community. Join us today!
