What's Happening on and off the Farm
November 17 Canceled due to weather. We will be rescheduling. Martinmas Lantern Walk. In cooperation with Mountain Grove Waldorf School & Coop, join us with handmade lanterns as we walk at dusk. Carrying our lanterns we will follow a path
together singing songs of St. Martin. He tore a piece of his garment to
give to a poor beggar which inspires us to bring food to give to a local
charity. It is a beautiful and serene experience.

CSA & Buying Club Update
We are now taking names for our 2014 CSA waiting list. If you are interested in our Buying Club, visit us at the farm on Saturdays between 9 am - 2 pm or Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday between 3 pm - 7 pm. Our products are also available at our retail outlet at Shoppes on Main in Stroudsburg (maple syrup, honey, garlic vinegar, canned products, organic coffee, and more), 380 Main Street, Stroudsburg, PA. Shoppes on Main just moved to lower main street. Stop in and visit our new location. Open every day 10-6.
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 4 and will be open until December 21 and 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 will be 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 newly developing "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 here for 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.
