- We’re supporting 8 farm businesses on our 520 acre farm.
- We’re facilitating a farming community that works together,
and has fun together.
- We’re home to livestock, wildlife, two hiking trails, and two valuable creeks.
- We’re providing a living classroom for students and our community learning more about local food and sustainable agriculture.
- In 2019, we proudly hosted 245 adults and 60 youth at Lundale Farm!
We hosted a viewing of Wasted: The Story of Food Waste and panel discussion at the Colonial Theatre; seven farm tours; a workshop on the Spotted Lanternfly and our volunteers’ organic interventions to control it and Ailanthus trees; a 7th grade OJR student club planting trees; a middle school environmental science camp; Ursinus College students studying sustainable agriculture; a tractor maintenance workshop with PA Women’s Ag Network; and a beautiful celebration of life ceremony for one of our beloved founders, Eleanor Morris Illoway.
In the new year, we look forward to expanding our programming to include helping other landowners lease their land for food production, and providing educational opportunities in sustainable agriculture and environmental education for our community.
Saving farmland from development protects fertile soil and open space for future generations, but without a next generation of farmers, that land will not be productive. The USDA 2012 census shows the average age of American farmers advancing toward 60, while the number of young people entering farming continues to decline.
Your contribution to Lundale Farm, Inc. (a 501 (c)(3) non profit organization) enables us to go beyond making affordable land and housing available to beginning farmers by addressing their educational and professional needs. As many studies have shown, new farmers can only establish thriving enterprises if they have: ongoing technical support, business mentoring, access to capital, assistance with marketing and distribution.
Lundale is dedicated to enhancing land use through productivity. Our farmers add to the common good by growing wholesome food for local residents, creating honest work, utilizing farming practices that improve soil, water and air quality, and encouraging public access to and education on their farms. Your contribution to Lundale Farm, Inc. is an investment that benefits the entire community now and in the future.
Please consider supporting Lundale Farm’s work in promoting sustainable agriculture in southeastern Pennsylvania and beyond. Your contribution is deeply appreciated.
