Hundred Fruit Farm works hard to maintain agricultural traditions to preserve the character of Bucks County's farm land. The individuals who tend to the ten acres of Hundred Fruit Farm are passionate about the local food movement. Dusen states that the farm serves, "as an ecological refuge for pollinators, birds, amphibians, and other flora and fauna in an area that is increasingly being degraded by lawn chemicals, herbicides, and ornamental landscaping." 

Hundred Fruit farm grows strawberries, honeyberries, june berries, raspberries, blackberries, currants, blueberries, gooseberries, bush cherries, elberberries, grapes, seaberries, maypops, kiwis, and more! They also provide pastured eggs, mushrooms, culinary herbs, medicinal herbs, nuts, veggies, and pastured meats. Hundred Fruit Farm offers a CSA and various courses and workshops covering topics like permaculture.
