Mott Family Farm

We are a small family farm specializing in diversified vegetable crops (mostly heirloom varieties), stone fruit and berries. We currently run a 65-member CSA and participate in the Farmers at Firehouse Farmers' Market (Pittsburgh, PA), and Farmers at Phipps Farmers' Market (Pittsburgh, PA). We sell to restaurants in Columbus and Pittsburgh who are part of the Local Matters network and who also seek local, organic produce. We are Certified Naturally Grown which requires the same stringent growing practices as certified organic, however with the added requirement of marketing locally. We believe in sustainable practices and renewable energy resources in our personal lives as well as for the farm. We use a permanent mulched bed system and minimally till. Our house runs on solar and wind generation, with a wood-burning stove for our heat. We believe in stimulating and supporting a local economy and will trade/barter for our goods!

Being members of the Mott Farm CSA has brought great value to our family and household in so many ways.

First, we are supporting a wonderful enterprise that provides fresh organic food to the local community - and with the growing problems of big ag, we will all be thankful for local farms like the Motts and their service.... [more]


I love the Motts Family Farm!

All their vegetables and fruits are delicious.

The Mott's family are great people, they care about the planet and well being of their fellow human beings.... [more]


The Motts make you feel as if you're part of their family, not just getting produce from a local farm. They're a blessing for us, providing organic produce in rural Ohio!
