Join our Farm! Support Community Agriculture!
Did you know that human nutrition comes from the soil? Microbiology interacts 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.
Sign up for our Organic Produce CSA!
Become a member of the Blackberry Meadows Farm by joining our CSA. Purchase 20 weeks of produce in the spring to be provided weekly or bi-weekly throughout the growing season (June through October). By joining, members get to meet and know their farmers at pick-up sites: either on Farm or at Farmers Markets in the city of Pittsburgh.
CSA Members reduce our farm risks by paying a portion of our operational costs in the spring. Members enjoy exclusive access to foods and preservation quantities of bumper crops in exchange for keeping us on the land.
Little Homesteaders Summer Programs
Join us on the farm this summer! We are expanding opportunities for play, learning, and family time on the farm. Some of the opportunities are dependent on interest and staff availability so please let us know which of these would be of interest to you and your family. Responses reserve a spot; program confirmation and registration links to follow.
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.
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.
