Taproot Farm is a family owned and operated farm in Berks County.

What makes us different is that we grow 100% of our vegetables and pasture-raise our hens on our farm, allowing us the ability to fulfill our promise of the most organic and sustainable farming practices in the industry. Plus, we leverage our Berks County friendships to bring our members the most delicious artisan bread, artisan cheese, chemical-free mushrooms and IPM fruit.

Whether you are a member who receives a weekly delivery of a fresh farm share (CSA) or you shop from our stand at one of our farmer’s markets in the area, or you purchase your ingredients for your restaurant with us, you are part of our family and we commit to providing only the best.


About Our CSA


We offer seasonal organically grown farm shares, also known as “Community Supported Agriculture” or CSA for short.

Members can sign up for a 23 week share in the summer (June – November) and a 12  week share the winter (November – January).

When you sign up for our vegetable share, you are also eligible to sign up for our eggs, mushrooms, fruit, bread and dairy shares.

Taproot delivers your farm shares to locations throughout The Greater Philadelphia Area, The Lehigh Valley, and Berks county


ORGANICALLY GROWN VEGETABLE SHARES


100% of our vegetables are grown here at Taproot Farm, unlike some of our competitors, who source their vegetables from multiple farms. We have 100% oversight, control and food safety of our organic farming practices and our fair labor practices.

All of our produce is seasonal, so you receive a weekly delivery of the freshest produce ever. In addition to our vegetables, our members will receive fresh berries & melons grown right on our farm. In the winter we can include jars of our famous tomato puree. We always email you a few days before you receive your farm share to let you know what will be inside!  These emails come with a full description of the produce, cooking tips, as well as weekly original recipes, catered especially for your farm share each week!

Small Share: 5 items
$410 ($17 a week)

Medium Share: 7 items

PASTURED-RAISED EGG SHARES


Pasture-raised eggs have more Omega-3s and Vitamin A than eggs from hens that live indoors. They have a rich, delicious flavor that is unparalleled. The deep orange yolk and perky egg-white of a pasture-raised egg is unmistakable.

We raise our laying hens on a rotated pasture and feed our hens local, organic, and NON-GMO grain. The hens freely roam in up to a 1/2 acre of moveable electric fence, which we use to keep predators at bay. That’s 71.6 square feet per bird!  Chickens thrive in this natural environment. They spend their days eating grasses and foraging for insects under open sky.  Our eggs are 100% sunshine eggs!

½ Dozen
$66 ($2.80 a week)

1 Dozen
$126.50 ($5.50 a week)

Taproot Farm Eggs are also available at our weekly Farmers Markets.
