Pennsylvania Certified Organic
2012 Sustainability Award

Weatherbury Farm was one of two farms statewide to receive the 2012 Sustainability Award at the annual Pennsylvania Certified Organic meeting on February 2 2012 (PCO is Weatherbury Farm's organic certification agency.)

The awards presentation program reads:

"Father and son, Nigel and Dale, along with Nigel's mother and Dale's wife Marcy, work together as a family to operate Weatherbury Farm in Avella, southwestern Pennsylvania.  The farm produces certified organic grains and flours including soft and hard wheat, oats, spelt, open-pollinated corn, as well as emmer and einkorn, ancient heritage grains.  In addition to raising grains and flours, Weatherbury Farm produces grassfed beef and lamb, and host farm vacations with a special attention to organic agriculture, green tourism and energy efficiency.  The Tudor family's goal is to heal the lands they farm which have been stripped of nutrients with the use of synthetic fertilizers, pesticides and herbicides applied before their ownership.  Toward that goal, they strive to be a totally integrated farm, composting their animal manure to fertilize their fields.  Weatherbury Farm is an extremely well managed farm, with exceptional records and excellent representatives of organic farmers!"
