About Us / Weatherbury Farm History: Weatherbury Farm is a sustainable integrated family farm in southwest Pennsylvania. Grass-fed beef and lamb are raised for sale directly to the consumer. Since 2009, certified organic grains (soft & hard wheat, oats, spelt, open-pollinated corn, emmer and einkorn) have also been grown on the farm.
In the spring on 2014, Weatherbury's on farm flour mill opened. From putting the seed into the soil to putting the flour into the bag all of the operations of planting, harvesting, grain cleaning and milling will happen on the farm. Weatherbury Farm is the only small farm producing estate flours, akin to an estate wine.
Weatherbury Farm is certified organic and inspected annually by Pennsylvania Certified Organic. This means we use absolutely no GMO’s, no herbicides, no pesticides, no fungicides or synthetic fertilizers. Our grain is nourished with compost, manure and green manure cover crops. Our mill has also been inspected by the Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture, insuring that we adhere to safe food handling practices.
Weatherbury Farm was one of two farms selected (from 500+ farms) for the 2012 Pennsylvania Certified Organic Sustainability Award.
Seasonally, bed and breakfast stays and farm experience stays are offered. As an agritourism farm, Weatherbury works to reconnect people with the farm and the source of their food. Our mission as a farm vacation is to educate our guests about farming and agriculture, with an emphasis on organic.
We are striving to be a totally integrated farm composting our animal manure to fertilize our fields. We also feed our free-range chickens organically using grains grown on the farm. Our goal is to heal the lands we farm which have been stripped of nutrients (with the use of synthetic fertilizers and pesticides and herbicides applied before our ownership.
