down on the farm: spring hours at one of my favorite farms

In the past I have told my readers about one of my favorite farms – Stratton Wynnorr Farm on Route 926 1/4 mile east of Route 352 , Westtown, PA 19395.

So I got their spring newsletter, and thought I would share what they are up to!

We are now open TUESDAY and FRIDAY  afternoons from 3pm -6pm. We will be selling Locally grown Seasonal Produce.

This week we have Strawberries, Asparagus Rhubarb and Romaine and Leaf Lettuce. We will update the available produce each week on our Facebook page.

Look for us along with our CSA partners Sunny Slope Farm at the Swarthmore Farmers Market on Saturdays beginning on May 19th from 9am to 1pm. This market will be open through October and takes place in the municipal parking lot next to the library.

We still have CSA spaces left for the season. It’s not too late join and get a full season’s worth of fresh produce.
Our website is still down so please email us at or call 610-399-9080.
We look forward to seeing you soon.



things are starting to happen down on the farms in chester county!

Two farms I think are awesome are Yellow Springs Farm and Stratton’s Wynnorr Farm.

At Yellow Spring’s Farm they have just announced their 2012 Goat Cheese CSA, open farm days on Sat/Sun, May 5-6; May 12-13; Sat, May 19; 10 am to 4 pm.  They also have the most amazing plants they raise.  I have actually purchased plant material from them in the past and can honestly say their plants are amazing and healthy.

Yellow Springs’s Farm is located at 1165 Yellow Springs Road in Chester Springs.  Their phone number is 610-827-2014 and they have a website. They are by appointment only if you care to visit the farm, and it is a little slice of heaven.

Moving over to Westtown, Stratton’s Wynorr Farm has announced their 2012 CSA .  In addition, did you know they offer small farm consulting services?

Much like Yellow Springs, Stratton’s is a beautiful working farm.  I love visiting there.  They have in the fall, pretty much my favorite corn maze.  Their phone number is 610-399-9080.  They have a website. They are on Route 926, East of Rte. 352.

Another fun thing here is the yarn they sell out of their own sheep.  So if you are a knitter, check out their yarns. I am not a knitter, can’t crochet, but am perfectly happy to receive…..

chester county ramblings: farm wandering

O.k. locals, last post of the day and the topic is farms.  When I was a kid, we had friends who had an idyllic piece of land and an amazing old farmhouse in Harleysville in Montgomery County – these were the days before so many plastic and stucco McMonstrosities were planted instead of crops.

One of the best things was not only the fun antiques stores in crossroads villages where there were actual deals to be had, but also visiting the farms which they had as neighbors for produce, poultry, dairy, etc.  It was a slice of heaven and truly local before it was a hip, modern eating/buying trend.

So you already know I like Stratton’s Wynnorr Farm , Yellow Springs Farm (in addition to goat cheese, their plants are AMAZING) and may not know I am a devotee of Sugartown Strawberries and Farmer Bob.

But where else would you send me?  And for what?

Again, leave a comment and thank you for flying chester county ramblings.
