August 2013: Outstanding Conservation Farmers Award from York County Conservation District
In September 2012 we were named Farmer Heroes by Farm Aid.
In April 2012 we received the Governors Award for Environmental Excellence from Michael Krancer, Secretary of the Department of Environmental Protection.
We are Sunnyside Farm, a pasture based, chemical free farm located just off of I83, near Ski Roundtop, Pinchot State Park, and the Susquehanna Speedway. Our livestock live on pasture, our heirloom vegetables grow chemical free. We plant natives where ever possible, make compost and keep bees too.
Located between York and Harrisburg in southcentral Pennsylvania, Sunnyside Farm welcomes visitors, just requests that you call to schedule a time before visiting. Best time to visit is usually Friday 5-7PM, arrangements can be made for larger, daytime groups. Homer Walden and Dru Peters have been farming for years on leased land, and in August 2009 acquired the property that is now Sunnyside Farm.
November 27, 2013: We have eggs and chicken available on farm, Friday from 5-7PM. Eggs are $5 per dozen, chicken is $3.75 per pound.
