News From the Farm

The Farm Stand is open for the season! In case you want more of something in your CSA or fresh flowers for your table, plan to stop by the farm on Saturdays between 9 and noon. For your convenience, produce can be pre-ordered on our online farm stand for pick up at the farm Saturday morning. There are also some great classes coming up including Cooking with Eggplant and on Preserving Herbs. Both classes will be held in the newly restored historic summer kitchen here at the Horn Farm.

Meet Your Farmer – Miranda Gindling

“Miranda’s smile brightens my entire day.” Alyson Earl, Executive Director

Second year Horn Farm intern Miranda Gindling is originally from College Park, MD but now calls York County home. She became interested in agriculture after volunteering at a farm three years ago. She realized growing her own food and learning survival skills empowered her. Since then she’s worked on growing her homesteading skills in order “to feed my family and community.” “I love to get reminded of the miracle of things growing,” she says of her internship. Miranda has been working hard on the herb garden at the farm this year. In addition to her internship,  Miranda loves to read, write, make art and sew quilts. If you see Miranda at the farm ask her about the herb garden and her experience as a intern.
