The Farm


Hundred Fruit Farm is located in Buckingham in Bucks County, PA. The farm is about 15 minutes from New Hope, Doylestown, and Newtown, one hour from Philadelphia, and two hours from New York City.


Buckingham has traditionally been a very picturesque agricultural area but in recent years has become increasingly suburban, with new housing developments being built all the time. This is true of much of Bucks County, which has some of the best farmland in the country but has also seen some of the worst urban sprawl. Thankfully there is also an effort to preserve many of the farms in the area, which has helped the area retain some of it's agricultural character.


We hope that Hundred Fruit Farm can help keep the agricultural traditions and character of this area alive by embracing small-scale agriculture and the local food movement. Our small farm also serves as an ecological refuge for pollinators, birds, amphibians, and other flora and fauna — in an area that is increasingly being degraded by lawn chemicals, insecticides, herbicides, and ornamental landscaping. Over time, we are finding that the farm is also serving a very important role in acting as a permaculture hub for our local community; a place for permaculture education and social gatherings that help us build and expand our local permaculture community.

The farm itself is about ten acres, situated at the foot of "Buckingham Mountain" (which in truth is more of a hill). The land is gently sloping silty loam soil with a spring-fed pond towards the bottom of the property. Before we bought the farm, it had previously been a horse farm and hay field, and decades before that it use to be part of a large diversified family farm and dairy in the area that produced a large amount of eggs and milk for the local area. There is a large deer and turkey population here, which come down from the mountain to feed in the nearby fields and homes. Wild blackberries, elderberries, mulberries, and wineberries are abundant in the area.

We started the farm in May 2015. Before planting anything we put up a deer fence around the entire perimeter of the property to protect the fruit trees, berries, and other crops from the deer. Every year since then we have planted more fruit trees, created more gardens, brought in more animals, and continue to develop and diversify the farm in a multitude of different ways.
