I’m the mom of a sweet little girl named Hannah and small scale community farmer. I grew up in Franklin County, Pennsylvania then ventured north to study at Sarah Lawrence College where, somewhere in between my studies and the streets of New York City, I fell in love with farming. A few years later, while studying at Harvard Divinity School, I made a conscious choice to return to the region where I was raised, to start a community farm, and to give back to the community where I was from. So here I am, just a few miles outside of Gettysburg, and only 20 miles from where I was raised.
Born May 29, 2015, Hannah is sweetest little person I’ve ever met. And her laughter is the best sound that I have ever heard. In all my life.
This lovely lady usually rolls in early, especially on harvest days. Sometimes with her sweet boxer/terrier mix named Petunia. Her beautiful blue eyes & quiet strength keep me centered when it feels like there are suddenly so many things to do, and all at once. She studied abroad in England while pursuing a Bachelor in Fine Arts and she always has creative and new ideas to try at AHF. This year? Cut Flowers.

I’m interested in your CSA crop sharing. I live near Gettysburg, but it’s still a drive, so I’m wondering if you can email your location to me to see if it’s something I think I can make happen on a weekly basis or if I should shoot for biweekly. Thanks!
This is for Elizabeth. I enjoyed your essay in the current Gettysburg Review, and just sent a brief message of appreciate to what I think is your Facebook account. It is being delivered to your Other Folder.
Hi Mark – Thanks for letting me know that you enjoyed reading And in the End is Our Beginning! I never did receive your Facebook message but I appreciate your kind words here. Thanks again! Elizabeth
We live in Orrtanna. Is it too late to buy a share? Thanks.
We do still have shares available! If you’re interested, please contact me at email@example.com. Thanks! Elizabeth
I am interested in signing up how do I do this?
Any idea of what has become of Thom and Judy Marti? Lost touch, trying to reconnect.
