Posts Tagged ‘Wrightstown Farmer’s Market’

We brought our Flip to the Wrightstown Farmer’s Market on its opening a day a couple of weeks ago, because we figured the best way to get a feel for the market was to hear from the vendors themselves. So, without further ado…

Vendors you’ll see on the video and what they offer…

The Happy Farm: raised-on-pasture  poultry, lamb and eggs

Tall Pines Farm: naturally-raised vegetables, fruits and plants

Flint Hill Farm: naturally-raised chevre cheese (goat and cow), butter

The Coffee Scoop: organic, fair-trade locally-roasted coffee beans

Red BarnThe Bucks County Foodshed Alliance is hosting a series of farm evenings this summer, each featuring a potluck supper at 6:30pm followed by a farmer-guided tour of one of the area’s premier small farms. There is no charge and no need to register for the event which is open to the public. Everyone brings a picnic dish to share, a beverage of choice and their own eating equipment.  (Chairs or picnic blankets also appreciated.)

The first one is this Wednesday, June 3rd at Delaware Valley College’s campus. Participants will meet at The Market by Shady Brook Farm, 2100 Lower State Road, Doylestown, 18901. Delaware Valley College is a private, co-educational four-year college founded in 1896 as the National Farm School. Its 550-acre campus includes the fields, farms and education facilities that support its agriculture, science and business programs.

Three more summer farm evenings:

  • Wednesday, July 1Hendricks Farm & Dairy, 202 Green Hill Road, Telford PA 18969
    HF&D is a grass-fed, natural raw milk dairy producing fine farmstead cheeses and cured meats. Trent and Rachel Hendricks are dedicated to horse-powered, sustainable farming the traditional way.
  • Wednesday, August 5Trauger’s Farm and Market, 335 Island Road (Route 611 & Island Road), Kintnersville PA 18930
    Myron and LeeAnn Kressman grow a huge variety of vegetables and fruit on a little more than 50 acres, run a small store on the premises and sell produce in season at local farmers’ markets. The farm has been in the Trauger family for nine generations.
  • Wednesday, September 2Manoff Market Gardens, 3157 Comfort Road (between Laurel and Paxson roads), Solebury PA 18963
    Gary and Amy Manoff began farming on Comfort Road in 1984. They are known for their white and yellow peaches and nectarines and 20 different varieties of apples, as well as strawberries, blackberries, melons and pumpkins.

The farm tours replace the BCFA’s general meetings (first Wednesday of the month from June to September). For those of you unfamiliar with this great organization, the Bucks County Foodshed Alliance, founded in 2006, is a coalition of farmers, landowners, restaurateurs, educators, environmentalists and consumers working together to foster and expand a comprehensive, local, sustainable food supply in Bucks County, Pennsylvania. General meetings, open to the public, are held the first Wednesday of the month at the Wrightstown Village Library or other area venues of special interest. BCFA also manages the Wrightstown Farmers Market at 2203 Second Street Pike, which is open every Saturday, 9am – 1pm, May 23 to November 21, 2009 and the Lower Makefield Farmers Market at Edgewood and Heacock Roads in Yardley, open every Thursday, 3:30 – 6:30, June 4 to October 15, 2009.
