Harvesting Just for You

Here at Green"er" Acres Farm, we are trying to make your farm product shopping as personalized and fresh as possible. Our new online market will allow us and our fellow growers to pick specifically for your orders. Don’t want kale this week, no kale. Want everything in tomatoes, that is what you will receive. No order too small, no order too large.

Our new online market is more like an “A La Carte” shopping experience. While not a true cooperative, we use cooperative efforts to achieve a steady and dependable means of supplying the highest quality produce and other products possible. Simply pay $75 membership fee annually, and you will have unlimited access to our fine list of products, YEAR-ROUND. It is like going to your local farmers’ market without leaving your armchair.

What kind of growing practices do you use?

We use the most sustainable methods possible in growing our produce. We do not knowingly grow any GMO varieties and avoid the use of any synthetic pesticides, herbicides, antibiotics or hormones. (Any crops raised using synthetic herbicides will be noted as such) We also raise many heirloom varieties of produce and specialize in the unusual colors, sizes and shapes of produce available, such as purple green beans, purple and white carrots, tiny Mexican Sour Gherkins, baby Blue Hubbard Squash, personal size butternut squash,and much more.

Our fellow growers share our passion for sustainable practices. Any grower who is Certified Organic or Certified Naturally Grown will be noted as such.

Where do the items I select come from?

In order to provide you, the customer, with a larger, more diverse selection of products, we are partnering with some amazing local growers. Every item listed in our market will have the grower/producer of that product listed. To learn more about our growers, simply click on the ‘Our Growers’ tab.

Check back frequently to see the new growers we add. If you know of a grower/producer with some amazing products that would fit nicely with our program, please feel free to send them our way so that we can discuss with them the details of our program.

Why Buy From GreenerAcresFarm.Locally Grown?

  • Enhance local economy: By purchasing produce and other items from local growers you are providing stability to your local economy through the support of local businesses.

  • Save natural resources: Buying locally makes you an invaluable link in the process of saving resources such as fossil fuels and packaging materials. Also, we are right here in your community so the expense of transportation and delivery is kept to a minimum.

  • Provide learning opportunities: Locally Grown supporters provide member growers the means to help educate our community about the importance of sustainable agriculture.

  • Supporting a way of life: The number of small farms in the United States has decreased dramatically in the last decade. Please help us preserve an honest and worthy means of making a living.

  • We believe that small, diverse, family-owned farms contribute to society’s overall health.

    What Are My Ordering Options?

    Unlike other co-ops, buying clubs, or CSAs where everyone gets the same box of stuff (and you don’t know what you’re getting until you get it), with GreenerAcresFarm.Locally Grown you get to order what you want, in the quantities that you want, from the farms that you want. The weekly email lists the produce, meats, dairy, milled products, fresh flowers, and artisan goods available that week, and you can browse the items on this website before you place your order.

    Can I Use My WIC/Seniors FMNP Vouchers?

    Yes! Green"er" Acres Farm, and several of our growers, are registered, inspected and authorized by the USDA to accept FMNP vouchers for eligible produce.
  • The Farmers Market Nutrition Program (FMNP) is a nutrition program governed by the USDA through the Farm Bill. The program provides WIC recipients and low income seniors with fresh, nutritious, unprepared, locally grown fruits, vegetables, and herbs from approved farmers’ in Pennsylvania.

  • Each eligible recipient receives 4 – $5.00 FMNP vouchers to redeem at a qualified farmers’ market or roadside stand.

  • The vouchers can be redeemed for Pennsylvania fresh fruits and vegetables only. No meats, eggs or dairy. No processed food like jams, honey, nuts, cider or baked goods. Also citrus and other tropical fruits are not allowed.

  • Due to the USDA rules, we can not give you change back if your items are less than the $5 increments. If your items exceed the $5 increments, you can simply make up the difference.

  • What does the Homegrown By Heroes/PA Preferred logo on your website mean?

    The Homegrown By Heroes logo is a national labeling initiative that represents that the grower/producer is a military veteran. Our owner, Cathie Dibert, is an Army Veteran who served during the first Gulf War.
    Our friends Andy and Vince Golden of Appalachia Malting, Rhonda Smith of The Skirted Soldier, Beth Roxby and Todd Fasnacht of Jamboree Farm and Beth Futrick of Cherry Hill Farm are all veterans as well.
    The PA Preferred logo symbolizes that the item is made or produced in Pennsylvania.
    The combined logo provides you, the customer, proof that the item you are buying was made or produced locally in Pennsylvania by a veteran.

    As we add new growers, we will highlight those using the Homegrown By Heroes label at their grower listing under the ‘Our Growers’ tab.
