Friends Farm

Friends Farm is a small family farm near Altoona and Huntingdon Pa. We use natural and sustainable methods to grow a wide variety of vegetables and fruits, eggs, meats and even honey bees. We have found it unnecessary to become certified organic as we sell everything we grow directly to our customers. We use no synthetic pesticides, herbicides, or fungicides on our crops, and our animals are raised on pasture using antibiotics only when absolutely necessary. We offer our products for sale through a CSA or vegetable subscription service, CSA in 2014 will be 4 separate seasons May through Feb(2015).

This is a wonderful place to pick up Non GMO veggies, and delicious fresh baked breads on Saturdays. We try to stop in as often as we can.. and will continue to support them! Love what they're doing, and happy to have them in Central PA.


We have been going to Friends Farm for about 2 years. There is always ample supply of fresh produce and a wide variety of whatever is in season. We especially appreciate that you can get grass fed, anti-biotic meats, along with hormone free milk, cheese, and eggs.... [more]
