About US

2016-09-02-06-44-52-2-1Elizabeth:

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. When I’m not tending to things at Amazing Heart Farm, you can find me at  Painted Turtle Farm, the Gettysburg College student farm – it’s a pretty amazing place. I also enjoy being on the Board of Directors for Certified Naturally Grown.

 

Hannah:

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.

 

Maria:

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.

    Hi there!
    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!
