Summer Farm Tour Series - Plowshare Farms

Bucks County Foodshed Alliance and Buy Fresh Buy Local® Bucks County announce the 2018 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 farm evenings include a potluck dinner at 6 pm and a tour of the farm to follow at 7 pm.

The 2018 series opens Wednesday, June 6, with a visit to Plowshare Farms, 111 Stover Park Road, Pipersville, Pa 18947. While the tour is free, donations to offset the cost of BCFA’s programs are strongly encouraged. Please note that Plowshare Farms will not have a restroom available at this event.

Plowshare Farms has been growing organic produce and raising grass-fed lamb in Bucks County since 2014. Owners Teddy and Faith Moynihan use sustainable practices like composting, remineralizing, and cover-cropping. Plowshare Farms does not use chemical pesticides and instead works to increase biodiversity, improve plant health and nurtures the land’s ability to protect against pests. Plowshare Farms offers an organic weekly CSA.

For updates and more information visit plowsharefarms.com.

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.
