Crighton Farm

We grow varieties suited to western Pennsylvania and start all our plants from seed in our greenhouses. (And, No GMOs on our farm!) Our crops are naturally grown, hand picked by us and selected with you in mind each week. We begin with asparagus, lettuces, rhubarb,scallions, endive and radishes, progress to kohlrabi, cabbages, all sorts of peppers, tomatoes including many heirlooms, eggplant and beets, on thru sweet corn, potatoes, PA Simply Sweet onions, red, white and Walla Walla onions, herbs, squashes, pumpkins, turnips, tomatillos, broccoli, cauliflower, Brussels sprouts and many kinds of beans. During the season, we also have from our own bushes and trees, gooseberries, currants, blueberries, raspberries, cherries, peaches, apples and pears. You will receive our newsletter "Seed to Table" each week with pertinent information and recipes. An extra bit of information is that we keep our pets out of the fields and packing areas. And our army of ladybugs and praying mantids patrol our fields doing an amazing job.

We are a family, too and have raised and eaten our vegetables and fruits for many years. We preserve by canning and freezing almost our entire year's food. We have a free range flock of chickens and terrific eggs. These will be included occasionally with the produce if you wish. We believe in our farm and it's ability to support itself. We use green manures and spring water for irrigation. If you are health conscious, we believe fresh vegetables and fruits are key.
