Maple Acres, tucked just south of Plymouth Meeting Mall, is being run by a fourth generation of farmers. Like most businesses of this kind, they are keeping a lot of balls in the air: overseeing ‘pick your own’ peas and strawberries, giving hay rides and monthly farm tours, raising cows, chickens and pigs, not to mention growing a wide variety of vegetables.
Corn and tomatoes are the big sellers here but throughout the season they carry everything from asparagus, broccoli, eggplant, string beans, peppers of all sorts, seasonal leafy greens, garlic, scallions and more.
It is important to note that they are not certified organic, but try to use as little pesticides as possible. Maple Acres also sells produce from other local farms. I have found the staff to be very friendly and knowledgeable about their offerings.
Their website is kept up-to-date with what is being offered at the moment. If you like canning, you can pick up their tomato seconds for a very reasonable price.
There are two things that I freeze for winter use: corn and sour cherries. Maple Acres has lovely corn all summer long.
A bonus: They have 8 acres of pick your own zinnias. This a cheap way to have fresh flowers whenever you have a little extra time and energy.
They carry Merrymead Farms milk, their own free range eggs and have a limited amount of meat from their own cows and pigs. If you have your heart set on a particular cut, they take pre-orders.
They take credit cards and there is plenty of parking.
