A Changing World from Rolling Hills Farm

Farmer Stephanie Spock writes...

As farmers, John and I consider ourselves lucky. We farm in a spot that is protected on all sides by trees.

Help us Support our Small Farmers

Dear Supporter,

You’ve heard it before, the importance of knowing who grows your food – and now it's even more important than ever. In addition to adapting to new and unexpected weather patterns as well as pests and diseases, Your Farmers are now also dealing with new rules, regulations and other economic challenges as a result of this pandemic. Over the years, BCFA has offered many ways for you and your community to better "Know Your Farmers," through the Wrightstown and Doylestown Farmers Markets, our Buy Fresh Buy Local e-guide, our websitenewsletters, and farm tours. And with your help, BCFA has also provided financial support directly to farmers. In 2019, we awarded Small Farm Grants (SFGs) to three local farmers. And recently, we continued this effort with a SFG to a generationally family-owned and operated Pennsylvania Maple Syrup grower and producer, whose primary market is Bucks County.
