This fifth generation family owned farm in Adams County is a proud member of Pennsylvania Association of Sustainable Agriculture (PASA). They control disease and pests in their fields by using Integrated Pest Management (IPM).

John and Rachel are one of the leading forces behind the Sunny Harvest Co-op, a collective of friends and family farmers in their community.
