Happy Easter & Passover from the Josie Porter Farm. We will be open this weekend at the farm and at the Easton Market. We have leg of lambs available for your holiday weekend meals as well as other great meat options. Spring warmth heated up our high tunnels and all the greens have really popped....we are excited to have spinach, arugula and more available this weekend. Coming up on May 17th, Steve Hoog will be offering his popular Wild Food Walk from 10 am to 3pm at the farm. Sign-up now!
Spring is here even though the weather feels confusing! The garlic is up and looking healthy and green! And in collaboration with MCTI and their horticulture program, the students have started many of our transplants for us. Lettuce, chard, kale, and more greens are up and will be planted in the high tunnel in the coming weeks at the farm! Herbs, Tomatoes, peppers and greenhouse cucumbers have been started and I'm dreaming of juicy tomatoes running down my chin. The fields are drying up slowly...and we were able to get in some snow peas this week! The sun has been out and drying our fields. We have started our daily tasks of planting, seeding, and mulching. Oh joyous Spring, we are happy you have arrived!

CSA & Buying Club Update
We are now taking applications for CSA membership. If you are interested in CSA membership, please see the bottom of this page for an application or contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org If you are interested in our Buying Club, an application is also available on the bottom of this page or visit us at the farm on Saturdays between 9 am - 2 pm.
Please feel free to contact us about our farm stand/buying club or to order garlic vinegar. We officially open our farm stand on Saturday, May 3 and Friday, May 9th and will be open every Friday and Saturday until December 20. We will then re-open after New Years. The farm stand/buying club is located at 6514 Cherry Valley Rd., Stroudsburg, PA .
Last year we diversified our farm operation to include a "Buying Club" at our on-site farm stand. The Josie Porter Farm is actively working with a number of other small family farms within our regional "foodshed" to insure the highest quality and widest variety of organically grown fruits and vegetables in our "Buying Club" and within the weekly CSA share. Variety and choice has been expanded through this collaboration and augments our notion of providing a local food hub for one-stop healthy, sustainable food shopping. We will be offering locally and regionally sourced: honey, maple syrup, meat, eggs, cheese, breads, wild caught Alaskan salmon and more! Click here for information about the Buying Club.
The foremost program of the Josie Porter Farm is the Cherry Valley CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) operation which provides a weekly share of produce to at least 125 families in the local community. Click herefor more information about the CSA.
If you are interested in our new Buying Club, applications are available on our website. Cherry Valley CSA and the JPF Buying Club are programs of the Josie Porter Farm.
We are located eight minutes south of Stroudsburg in Northeastern Pennsylvania, and offer families an opportunity to partake in fresh, locally grown and organically managed produce. Families who participate in the farm support the cost of raising these delicious vegetables, and help maintain the environmental and scenic quality of the beautiful Cherry Valley area of the Pocono Mountains. The local community of shareholders and members becomes connected with and mindful of the real needs of our Earth, the Valley, and this farm.
