Know Your Farmers
Dana Hunting and Derek McGeehan arrived at Anchor Run Farm in late fall 2008. At that time the 5-year-old CSA program maintained and managed 10 acres and fed 175 neighborhood families weekly during a 25-week season. Since then, the farm has grown to 25 acres while nourishing 350 of our neighbors with Full, Medium, and Half shares over a 40-week harvest season, and has become Certified Organic!
Dana and Derek currently operate the CSA in the heart of Bucks County on land that is part of a 100-acre open space preserve that is owned by Wrightstown Township. In 2014 they purchased the homestead area of the farm from the township which includes the barns, outbuildings, 200-year-old stone farmhouse, and ranch house where Field Manager Hannah lives with her husband Jason. They are all so thankful to have the opportunity to be stewards of this beautiful land and to have a community that is very supportive!
Derek and Dana met while studying geography at Penn State University. During that time, Dana fell in love with local food and farming through her internship at Village Acres Farm, an organic CSA just outside of State College, PA. After completing their Bachelor of Science degrees in 2006, Derek and Dana moved to Washington, D.C. While there, Derek continued to learn about the natural world through an internship at National Geographic Society. As an urban planner, Dana also discovered more about the impact of human activity on the environment. They maintained a farming connection by becoming members of a local CSA-only farm and growing food on a plot of land in a community garden. After a year-and-a-half of city living, Derek and Dana were ready to immerse themselves in farm life and return to Pennsylvania. In early 2008 they accepted management positions at Spoutwood Farm in York County. While there, they learned about the wonderful opportunity at Anchor Run Farm, which brought them close to family roots in Bucks and Montgomery Counties. Since their arrival at Anchor Run, Dana and Derek (now with the help of their two little farmers Abigail and Gabriel) have labored to grow the highest quality produce for their neighbors, while protecting the precious resources that allow the farm to thrive year after year.

What is CSA?
Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) is a system of farming that brings together farmers, community members, and agricultural land into a mutually beneficial relationship.
Members of the community purchase a "farmshare" for a full growing season. This commitment implies a willingness to share with the farmer both the bounty from the land and at least some of the risks of its production. The farmer receives fair and guaranteed compensation. In return, members receive a variety of fresh picked produce, sustainably grown by farmers they personally know and trust.
