Farmer Bob received his Masters Degree in Agriculture from Penn State University in 1980.
He has been farming full-time since 1986. His great grandparents bought the family fam in 1896.
He, along with his trusty, insane dog, Happy, work every day from April through November!
During the winter months, Farmer Bob beats himself up by going on Adventure Tours in exotic places. Hiking, biking, kayaking, scuba diving, and birding in places like Costa Rica and Belize. Next time you see him, ask him about how he lost all of his toenails!
Has worked faithfully in the store every Monday and Wednesday since 1999.
She buys candy and Halloween items and is always looking for bargain sales to re-sell at the farm market.
Bobby has driven our weekend hayrides for years. He is one of my avid deer hunters who helps out through the year doing all those glamorous jobs like putting hay in the barn/helping with the hay maze construction, and other tasks on the farm.
John usually answers to"Foss". He has helped in various capacities since 2000. John is the Wildlife and Habitat Manager of the farm.
He's always there to lend a helping hand and find arrowheads. He has also taken some amazing photographs of the farm, some of which are included in this site.
Jim is our beekeeper. His beekeeping interest arose from his gardening hobby and a desire to naturally increase his garden's crop yield.
Jim has a total of 38 hives in 5 apiaries. The newest apiary is right here at Sugartown Strawberries. We have 4 hives filled with bees grown all naturally with no chemical treatments. We also have 5 "nucleus" hives to grow the apiary stronger for next year! The bees are of Italian, Russian, Carnolioan and natural feral bee heritage - a great melting pot of genetics! Our bees will be gathering pollen and nectar April through July from the surrounding area to make the best all natural, local honey ever tasted!
Our honey is harvested towards the end of July and available for purchase right here at Sugartown Strawberries shortly afterward.
Ron drives the weekend hayrides in October and lends a hand driving the school tours.
