Summer Farm Tour at Anchor Run Farm
August 5 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm| Free
Bucks County Foodshed Alliance and Buy Fresh Buy Local® Bucks County announce the 2020 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 socially distanced tour of the farm. There will be no potluck meal this year.
The 2020 series continues Wednesday, August 5, 2020, at 7 pm, with a visit to Anchor Run Farm, 2578 Second Street Pike, Wrightstown (Newtown for GPS), PA 18940. While the tour is free, donations to offset the cost of BCFA’s programs are greatly appreciated.
Dana Hunting and Derek McGeehan own Anchor Run CSA and farm on municipally-owned, preserved land. Anchor Run Farm has a commitment to improve the land on which they grow while providing quality Certified Organic produce for the community. The first CSA east of the Mississippi to be sponsored by a municipality, they maintain a harvest season of 42 weeks annually over three CSA seasons. Since 2004, Anchor Run’s family-owned business has grown fresh, organic, local vegetables, herbs, berries, and flowers, expanding from 6 acres the first year to its current 25 acres.
