Taproot Farm

We are a family owned and operated farm in Berks County. We grow 100% of our vegetables and pasture-raise our hens on our farm, allowing us the ability to fulfill our promise of the most organic and sustainable farming practices in the industry.

Plus, we leverage our Berks County friendships to bring our members the most delicious artisan bread, artisan cheese, chemical-free mushrooms and IPM fruit.

Whether you are a member receiving a weekly fresh farm share (CSA), frequent our farmers markets, or purchase ingredients for your restaurant with us, you are part of our family and we commit to providing only the best.
