Blackberry Meadows Farm was first certified organic in 1992 and has since provided the Pittsburgh area with high quality local, fruits and vegetables, meats and eggs. Our products are available through CSA shares, East End Food Cooperative, two urban farmers markets and on farm sales.
Our season runs approximately 20 weeks from the beginning of June through mid to late October. Subscribers travel to our farm once a week to pick up in-season produce. We offer a (2013 pricing) Basic Share for $525, a Plus Share for $940 and a Half Share (subscribers come every other week) for $300. .
We host two city drop-off locations; one in Fox Chapel at the Boyd Community Center, one in Oakland at Phipps Conservatory. We limit these drop offs to Basic or Plus Share customers only (you can always find someone to split your share with) at a cost of $645 or $1050. Please contact us early, as city drop -offs sell quickly!
We're excited to be key players in creating a "local food community" within the Pittsburgh Region and want to share our knowledge and passion for local organic agriculture with all those who may be interested. See our website, www.blackberrymeadows.com, for more information or call or email us to subscribe.
In addition to harvested produce, subscribers can purchase freshly made bread, organic fruit (occasionally), local honey, chicken, turkey and eggs, hand made natural soaps, local pop (made without High Fructose Corn Syrup), as well as goods from Frankferd Farms, a regional wholesaler of natural and organic products ranging from cheese to dishwashing detergent to vitamins!
