Plowshare Produce is a Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) farm located in McAlevy's Fort, "The Heart of Stone Valley." Micah and Bethany Spicher Schonberg are grateful to rent six acres of Bethany's parents' land, where her great-grandfather farmed with horses in the 1940's.
At Plowshare Produce, we are committed to being good neighbors in our community and careful stewards of the land. Now in our sixth season of farming, we grow healthy, tasty vegetables without synthetic fertilizers or pesticides. Our gardens and greenhouses are certified by Pennyslvania Certified Organic.
We invite you to become a Plowshare Produce shareholder by signing up for a weekly bag of fresh, local vegetables from the last week of May through the first week of November, or by joining our weekly Pick List to custom-order your veggies.
Our CSA "Farm Share" provides a family with vegetables all season long, and it includes a newsletter that offers recipes and tips for creating nutritious, delicious meals from your weekly bag. Half Shares offer the opportunity to pick up a share every other week.
Whether or not you are a farm shareholder, you are welcome to sign up for our "Pick List" - a weekly e-mail list of our surplus produce - then place an order and come to the farm on Fridays for your veggies.
Plowshare Produce is in McAlevy's Fort along Route 26 - sixteen miles south of State College and sixteen miles north of Huntingdon. Folks are welcome to pick up their shares at the farm or at a central location in State College or Huntingdon.
We hope to be your farmers!
