  • 2.General Questions
  • What is CSA?
    ghfarm20-12-2014

    CSA stands for Community Supported Agriculture. This strategy for selling produce directly to consumers has been around for over 25 years.  Types of CSAs are as diverse as the farmers who run them. Our system is a simple subscription service that allows customers to order exactly what they want each week based on what we have available during the season.  Unlike other CSAs you are not required to get a share of produce each week. You simply shop as if you were at a farmer's market.

  • Where does your produce come from?
    ghfarm20-12-2014

    Most of the produce we sell comes from our own farm. We also occaisionally supplement our selection with produce from other local farmers, including our co-op - Tuscarora Organic Growers (TOG).  In the winter we also offer organic citrus that TOG brings up from Florida. This helps us broaden our selection so we can continue doing business in the winter months.

  • Is all of you produce organic?
    ghfarm20-12-2014

    Everything we sell is organic with a few exceptions.

    • Our eggs are not certified organic because we get our feed from Big Valley Feed and Grain in Belleville. We have a small flock that has access to a large yard and we also give them lots of left over vegetables.
    • We also offer local, seasonal tree fruit that we cannot obtain from organic sources.  These include peaches, plums, apricots, cherries, and apples. Our main supplier is Andrews Farm Market in Edenville. We have been dealing with the Andrews for 30 years and feel that supporting other local farmers is an important part of sustaining our agricultural community whether they farm organically or with conventional methods.
  • Can we buy your produce at farmers' markets?
    ghfarm20-12-2014

    Yes. We do one farmers market in Huntingdon at Portstown Park every Thursday from may through October, 12:00 to 5:00.
