Under the leadership of Randell H. Spackman, Thornbury Farm is a Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) organization. By making a financial commitment to the farm, members create a relationship with the farm and receive a weekly basket of produce from late May into the fall. Please call 610-793-2933 or contact us for details and to become a supporting member. We only have a limited number of openings each year due to the demand.

There is a great selection of delicious fresh produce, fruits, specialty items, breakfast foods, jellies, condiments, sauces, treats, and other goodies to highlight your holiday feasting. We hope that you can stop by and browse all the new, interesting selections. There is easy parking plus Daisy the donkey, Luna, the goats, plus Fiona and Duncan the pet pigs always appreciate a visit.
