About Us / Kretschmann Organic Farm History: Becky and I (plus many other helpers) have been providing Pittsburgh area customers with organically grown produce, fruits, and meats since 1971. Our 80 acre family farm is located near Zelienople, about 35 miles north of the city. We also cooperate with several area farms, some close neighbors, and a wonderful group of Amish families to our north who have been farming organically. This assures an even steadier and more varied supply of produce while promoting the growth of organic production in western PA.One of the first organic growers in western PA over 40 years ago, we have always grown strictly organically and are certified organic with OEFFA. We believe in no magic formulas, just encourage life everywhere we can. We fertilize most heavily with the farmer's footsteps, keeping our operation diverse and simple. We try to give service and value to our customers and to stay humble enough to change. We have always felt our organic produce should be able to compete well with conventional in both price and quality. We feel we give our customers both. And more.We started many years ago selling most of our produce directly to consumers at farmers' markets. We have also sold to stores, schools, hospitals, resale wholesalers and restaurants. Unfortunately, many people have been unable to obtain this beautiful chemical-free produce either because of time constraints or location. Since 1993, we have offered boxes of produce via subscription to be delivered to your neighborhood or business through a CSA (Community Supported Agriculture). Every week from the first of June to Thanksgiving a subscriber receives a box of produce containing whatever is in season. We have three sizes for you to choose from based on the size of your family. Delivery days are Tuesday through Friday, depending on location.
