Jade Family Farm Port Royal, PA
Jade Family Farm, headed up by farmer John Eisenstein, is a certified organic vegetable farm in central Juniata county, Pennsylvania, at the foot of the Tuscarora Mountain. This is a true family farm, with three generations directly involved in its operation. The family cultivates about six acres of vegetables with another acre or so of fruit. Their fertile and well drained fields are bounded by forests on three sides, which results in some lovely scenery and renders them immune from such problems as groundwater contamination and pesticide drift.
The Eisensteins have been farming at Jade since 2005 and received organic certification in 2006. They grow almost every vegetable suitable for their area as well as gooseberries, red and black currants, kiwiberries, some tree fruit, and strawberries, some of which we are lucky enough to get our hands on!
