Harvest Valley Farms grows over 65 varieties of fruits and vegetables. Brothers Art and Larry King along with Art's son, David King manage the farm of 145 acres. Currently 180 CSA members pick up their shares at the farm on Tuesday's from 2 to 6 pm or Wed. from 2 to 7 for 23 weeks a year and another 172 members use a drop site in the city of Pittsburgh. It works like this for pickup at the farm: you have two mandatory items, then you can pick 6 additional items from the 20-40 that are on display. One "item" might be: 1 watermelon, or 4-cucumbers, or 1 lb. of green or yellow beans, ect. We have an annual "Farm Field Day" where members can come and get a "farmer guided" hayride tour at one of our three farm locations. As of winter 2013, we have 7 drop sites in pittsburgh.
We grow the imfamous"Pennsylvania Simply Sweet Onions" every year!! This is a trade marked onion that is the sweetest onion you will ever eat, rivaling the vidalia and walla walla.
We also have a Fall Festival for all the pumpkin and farm animal lovers in the community!
