About Us / M&M Robertson Farms History: We are located in scenic Licking Township, Clarion County, Pennsylvania. We started farming in 1999 and became certified organic in 2001; we did not renew our certification in 2005 and will be applying to Certified Naturally Grown in 2006. Our farm encompasses 95 acres; about 3 acres are in vegetable production while the balance is in hay, pasture and woodland. We grow a wide variety of open-pollinated vegetables and herbs, most of them heirlooms. Diversity is one of the primary keys to a healthy ecosystem, and over the last 5 years we have seen first-hand the results of focusing on diversity and building a healthy soil foundation in the quality of our crops. Our focus is on heirloom varieties of produce; everything we grow is open-pollinated.We try to grow several varieties of each type of vegetable, and in 2006 we will be growing more than 25 kinds of hot peppers and more than 10 kinds of tomatoes, in addition to many other items. We also grow several types of culinary herbs and 4 varieties of raspberries. In 2004 we started a small heirloom orchard.INTERNS WANTED!In 2006 we are starting an intern program.
