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.
