Red Hill Farm, owned by the Sisters of Saint Francis of Philadelphia, is located on 183 acres of woodlands and meadows, some of the last undeveloped land of Delaware County. The farm is one of the sisters’ many environmental initiatives. Red Hill Farm is a six-acre farm in its 14th year of production. It provides food for 120 members as well as for the Sisters of St. Francis.
Community Supported Agriculture
Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) allows community members to connect with a local farm and support their local food economy. Members purchase a farm share and in return receive a weekly supply of fresh produce picked at the peak of ripeness and flavor for the duration of the growing season. Red Hill Farm offers over 30 types of mixed vegetables and a wide array of U-Pick crops, including berries, cut flowers, and herbs. We also offer some off-farm products for purchase so that members have access to local meats, eggs, and dairy. Members agree to share in the inherent benefits and risks of the agricultural season. The arrangement guarantees the farmer financial support and enables many small, sustainable farms to stay in business. In a growing number of instances, this encourages young adults to consider a career in farming.
