Salvaterra’s Gardens is a family-owned operation located in Alburtis, PA. Their “garden” originated as a simple backyard kitchen garden that fed the family fresh vegetables in the summertime and allowed them to put away canned and frozen items for those long winter months. In August 2009, Matt & Jess Salvaterra moved into a 7.5 acre farm located in Alburtis, PA. They enjoy growing heirloom vegetable varieties and saving the seed from these plants to continue a
tradition that is many centuries old. They believe that everyone has the right to access and purchase fresh, healthy and natural food. “It’s important to us to utilize natural and sustainable practices and products both in our home and on our farm. We grow all of our products naturally and we believe that if we wouldn’t eat it or serve it to our families, we shouldn’t sell it either.” In January 2013 the Salvaterra’s welcomed new baby, Serafina to the farm!

Cheesemaker Stefanie Angstadt’s passion for cheese making began in Brooklyn and then carried her to the award-winning Avalanche Cheese Co. in Basalt, Colorado where she learned the craft of olde-world style cheesemaking. Stephanie has returned to Pennsylvania and her German ancestors’ local roots in Oley Valley to handcraft raw, pasteurized and aged cheeses, butter and yogurt from sheep and cow milk. Milk for the cheese, yogurt and butter is sourced from nearby dairy farms who graze their animals rotationally on chemical-free pastures and never feed their animals grain — 100%, nothin’-but-grass fed milking herds — and the proof is in the curds! Valley Milkhouse currently offers sheep cheese, cow cheese, sheep milk yogurt and cultured butter from cow milk.

The Purely Farm Story as told by Joanna and Marc Michini… “In 2004 we decided to pursue our calling and began farming in Bucks County. Purely Farm evolved out of a reluctant vegetarian’s search for an alternative to factory farmed meats and a hunter/gardener’s quest for a self sustaining lifestyle. Over the years this journey has granted us the opportunity to offer families wholesome naturally pasture-raised meats. From the start we have chosen quality over quantity. We raise and process broilers in small batches with an attention to detail resulting in the cleanest, freshest birds ever experienced. Our pigs are born on the farm, remain together in individual litters, and are permitted to grow as tight family units. We believe our meats’ distinct flavor comes from the combination of life out on pasture and a diet supplemented by mineral rich, organic grain rations that are locally grown. All of our animals at Purely Farm are raised on pasture. Through practicing different methods of pasture management we are able to raise healthy, nutritious meats with distinct and savory flavor.” Purely Farm offers pork, chicken, turkey and lamb.

Peace Valley Winery
Before there was a Peace Valley Winery, there was a Susan’s vineyard. Susan Gross established her vineyard in Chalfont, PA in 1968 by planting 3 acres of wine grapes along with a large experimental plot of new hybrid grape varieties from France and Germany. Since that time, the vineyard has expanded into a commercial enterprise through experimenting with different varieties in order to determine which grapes work best for the local soil and climate. Peace Valley Winery was opened in late 1984 when Robert Kolmus joined Susan as a business partner. Rob started working at the vineyard as a high school student and continued on through his college days at Delaware Valley College where he majored in horticulture. Through years of study and hard work, Rob has turned the grapes from Susan’s vineyard into delicious, award winning wines. Feel free to stop by the vineyard overlooking Lake Galena and Peace Valley Park. In addition to great wines you will find that they have expanded into a thriving pick-your-own farm as well. Peace Valley offers 90% estate bottled, sparkling wines, European varietals, French-hybrid cuvees and native fruit wines.
