Farm Tour: Aro Hill Farm

Bucks County Foodshed Alliance and Bucks County chapter of Buy Fresh Buy Local® announce the 2017 series of popular farm evenings that introduce consumers to the local small-scale producers who put the freshest foods onto our tables via direct sales, community-supported agriculture operations (CSAs), farmers’ markets, farm stands and other venues.

The 2017 series continues Wednesday, July 5, with a visit to Aro Hill Farm, 2624 Dark Hollow Road, Jamison, PA 18929. While the tour is free, donations to offset the cost of BCFA’s programs are strongly encouraged.

Meet Jim Wertman, a veteran now farmer, and his wife Stacy, and learn about the farm they’ve built. After 21 years, Jim retired from the Navy and earned his Masters in Business Administration and an Organic Farming Certification from Delaware Valley University. Shortly after, he started farming his land in Jamison. Today Aro Hill Farm is a  thriving 13 acre family-run farm.

For updates and more information visit Aro Hill Farm’s Facebook page.

The evening’s potluck meal runs from 6:00 to 7:00pm, with the tour to follow. Visitors are expected to bring a dish to share with others and their family’s own eating equipment, beverages and seating, and they should expect to carry out their own trash. This educational and entertaining event is appropriate for children of all ages who are under an adult’s supervision. Please wear appropriate footwear for the farm.
