Thornbury Farm Market and CSA

Thornbury Farm Market is located at 1256 Thornbury Road, West Chester, PA, near the intersection of Rt. 926 and South New Street in Thornbury Township. Founded in 1709, the farm is continuing its rich heritage by producing many varieties of certified naturally grown vegetables.

At Thornbury Farm Market, there is a great selection of delicious fresh produce, fruits, specialty items, breakfast foods, jellies, condiments, sauces, treats, and other goodies. We also have meats that are 100% free from any added hormones or antibiotics, a super extra virgin olive oil that won a gold medal in Europe for quality, local cheeses, honey, jellies, and, of course, superior veggies and fruits. We have ice cream!


There is easy parking plus Daisy the donkey, Luna, the goats, plus Fiona and Duncan the pet pigs always appreciate a visit. Children must be supervised at all times for farm safety.


Thank you so much for helping to support local farming in Chester County!


Thornbury Farm CSA

Under the leadership of Randell H. Spackman, Thornbury Farm is also 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.


Bands and Bonfire Benefit - May 6th 4PM-10PM

Join us at the farm! Great local bands like Plastic Shrines, Younger than Charlie, Mindy Rhodes and the Bravo Theatre Company will be performing. Enjoy food and drink from Paradocx Vineyard, Natalie's Catering and Hood's Barbeque. Meet our market vendors, food trucks, local authors, painters of Brandywine area.

There will be a silent auction at 7:30PM and many antique cars from the Chester County Antique Car Club and more. Tours of the Thornbury pipe organ will be from 4-6PM.

Admission is free but we are asking for a $10 donation from individuals or $20 for families.

Damages to the high tunnel were roughly $8000 and we have crops to be planted in the next three weeks. We are the last working farm around at over 308 years old. Our farm market is what keeps the farm working but we need your support to rebuild.

Pipe Organ Restoration

Thornbury Farm is in the process of restoring a 1926 Mudler Hunter pipe organ. The organ contains 2300 pipes with a Haskell Swell Division and a Mollier Choir Division. The main blower is 100+ years old and weighs in excess of 2,000 pounds. This restoration is part of an even larger project to host serveral concerts and lectures each year at Thornbury Farm.
