Our Future Farm!

Hello folks!  We have lots of exciting stuff popping up this spring, but we want to introduce our future home for Down to Earth Harvest.  We recently purchased land south of Downingtown, PA and will slowly be transitioning to the new property, with hopes to be there next season.  Take a look at some of the photos to see what we got ourselves into.  Kennett friends and neighbors, don’t worry, we will continue to include you in our future plans.  Please be sure to share this information with your Dowingtown area friends, as we try and establish ourselves in our new home.  Thank you all for your continued support!

Join our CSA!

Although we are filling up quickly, we still have spots available for our 2015 CSA.  We will continue to have a pick-up location at the farm in Kennett Square, as well as two new locations in Downingtown and Malvern.  We are in the process of purchasing a small farm of our own just south of Downingtown giving us an opportunity to serve both the Kennett and Downingtown areas.  Click below for information!

Robert & Amy tied the knot!

The end of our 2014 growing season has been quite exciting.  We were married in September down on the Eastern Shore of the Sassafras River.  It was a beautiful day and we were able to showcase our delicious harvest and capture many wonderful memories with our family and friends!  Here are a few photos from the special day…

Rain or shine…

…we will be at the Bala Cynwyd Farmer’s Market today from 2:30 – 6:30! We still have a lot of tomatoes to get through so make sure to stop by and get your favorite heirloom.
