Last of Summer 2014 Farm Tours - Anchor Run Farm CSA on August 6th

On Wednesday, August 6, BCFA members, Bucks BFBL partners and all interested individuals and families are invited to Anchor Run Farm CSA for a potluck meal and tour.

Dana Hunting and Derek McGeehan have been farming at Anchor Run since the spring of 2009. Previously, they managed a CSA in York County and gardened together in Alexandria, VA. They are committed to sustainable, environmentally conscious farming using deep organic techniques that nurture the soil and biodiversity of the 100+-acre farm in general and produce healthy, nutrient-dense, tasty food. The 200 CSA shares receive vegetables, berries and eggs in season.

The tour will show how Derek and Dana improve soil qualities and properties through appropriate additions of minerals, compost and fertilizer; their use of cover crops to protect the soil and add organic matter; and their intention to enjoy their “work and lifestyle and cultivate a nice community of folks who are pleased to be on the receiving end of our hard work and dedication.”

The evening’s pot luck 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. Although the farm tours are free, donations to BCFA’s programs are encouraged. This educational and entertaining event is appropriate for school-aged children who are under an adult’s careful supervision.

Anchor Run Farm CSA is at 2578 2nd Street Pike, Wrightstown (Newtown 18940). Any cancellations due to severe weather will be posted on the BCFA website. For more information: 215.621.8967 or BucksFoodshed.org.
