At Plowshare Produce, we are committed to being good neighbors in our community and careful stewards of the land.

Now in our sixth season of farming, we grow healthy, tasty vegetables without synthetic fertilizers or pesticides. Our gardens and greenhouse are certified by Pennsylvania Certified Organic.

We welcome you to share in the abundance of our farm as a CSA member,
a Pick List subscriber – or a guest at a Plowshare Potluck!

Contact us to join our e-mail newsletter list or click here to learn about special events at Plowshare Produce.

The Farm Share

Come to the farm once a week - or to a central location in State College or Huntingdon - to fill your bag with the best of the day’s harvest. Half shares offer the opportunity to pick up a share every other week. Download this form to sign up for the 2014 season!
The Pick List

Sign up to receive a weekly e-mail list of our surplus produce, then place an order and come to the farm on Fridays for your custom-picked selections. Though the Pick List offers fewer options than the Farm Share, it's great for occasional veggie-eaters or frequent vacationers.
The Flower Share

Join our flower share to receive a weekly bouquet of fresh-picked country flowers for ten weeks during flower season - or order a bouquet anytime for a friend or sweetheart. Sadly, we will not be offering flower shares in 2014.

What is Community Supported Agriculture (CSA)?

Community Supported Agriculture is a new name for an old-fashioned idea:
"Farmers and eaters should know each other!"


Shareholders pay in the spring, and receive a weekly selection of the fresh-picked harvest all season long. Some of the benefits include:

• We raise your vegetables with sustainability and flavor in mind – not just “shippability.”
• You’re always welcome to visit the farm to see your food from seed to harvest!
• Your weekly bag of produce – with over 50 kinds of vegetables throughout the season – encourages healthy cooking and eating.
• Picking up your share or coming to a Plowshare Potluck are great opportunities to meet your neighbors.
• Your money stays in the local economy and benefits your community by sustaining a small, diversified family farm.


What you’ll find in your box or bag:

Spring (May-June)
Salad mix, spinach, lettuce, radishes, tender white turnips, peas, scallions, kale and other leafy greens, cabbage, broccoli, early beets and carrots, the first zucchini, herbs

Summer (July-September)

Tomatoes, green beans, potatoes, carrots, beets, zucchini, cucumbers, sweet bell peppers, hot peppers, garlic, edamame, watermelon and cantaloupe, onions, swiss chard, celery, sweet corn, lettuce, herbs and flowers

Fall (October-November)
Pumpkins and winter squash, sweet potatoes, cabbage, broccoli, cauliflower, carrots, beets, parsnips, kohlrabi, onions, turnips, rutabagas, potatoes, kale, leafy greens, lettuce, spinach, herbs

Contact us to find out about ordering large quantities of summer canning veggies or fall storage crops.


Work Shares Available
We offer a limited number of farm shares in exchange for two and a half hours of work per week. Tasks may include harvesting, washing or packing vegetables and, of course, weeding! Contact us about joining the 2014 team.

The Plowsharing Fund

We are committed to making our vegetables available to all, regardless of income. Contact us to apply for full or partial share assistance or, if you are able to give, we welcome your contributions to the Plowsharing Fund.

Micah and Bethany Spicher Schonberg are grateful for the opportunity to grow vegetables on Bethany’s parents’ land in Stone Valley, where her great-grandfather farmed with horses in the 1940’s.

Plowshare Produce is located in McAlevy's Fort, "The Heart of Stone Valley," along Route 26 - sixteen miles south of State College and sixteen miles north of Huntingdon. Click here for directions.

We hope to be your farmers!
