We have incorporated modern organic practices with an ancient Egyptian style farming along the banks of the Maiden Creek. The Egyptians grew their crops along the banks of the River Nile on the rich soil which was left behind after the yearly floods. The fertile soil was ideal to grow healthy crops. A similiar soil exists along the banks of the Maiden Creek. We are also experimenting with container grown herbs with the future development of a full scale solar farm. Our produce includes tomatoes, sweet corn, potatoes, eggplants, string beans, sweet peppers, beets and cucumbers.

We are located in beautiful Perry Township in Berks County where the Saucony and Maiden Creeks come together. The Sauconk tribe had a large camp in this area and named the local area where the two waterways came together, Virginville. Our crops are planted on these ancient Indian tribal and hunting grounds. We believe we are very privileged to be the current stewards of land with such a rich history.
