Fruit Add-On Shares are only offered during the summer season. There are no add-ons being offered for winter 2020.
What is an Add-On?
CSA add-ons are shares from other local farmers that will enhance your local food experience. Perfect for those wanting to expand their support of local farms, experiment with new products or ingredients, and make the most of in season items such as fruit or herbs.
How it works
Members receive an email with information on our additional vendors. From links on the email, members purchase add-ons directly from the vendor and then pick up at Pennypack Farm for a one-stop shop of local products. When choosing pickup location on their website, simply select Pennypack Farm. Participating farms will either deliver their products to the farm for pickup, or bring the orders themselves - a wonderful opportunity to continue to meet and connect with those who produce your food! This offer is only available to current Pennypack CSA members.

"Our focus is on cultivating varieties of fruit which are not commonly grown. Our greatest passion is the flavor and high quality of our produce. In our orchard, we have the largest selection of fruit varieties around; our apple collection alone includes over 350 different varieties! We also grow a large variety of plums, peaches, Asian pears, European pears, and seedless grapes" - North Star Orchard
