Potluck Dinner and Folk Music Jam Scheduled
for Friday May 31, 2019

Please join us for an evening of flour, fun, food and music on Friday May 31, 2019.

Pick up your June flour order from 5:30 to 6:15 PM and then join us for a potluck dinner in the Livery Hall.  A folk music jam will follow dinner.

Plan on bringing a dish to share, your instrument(s), voice, music and a sense of fund.

Folk music jams are folks playing and folks singing and folks listening.  An attendee at a November '07 jam called it a community sing-along.

Fred Rogers Company Films "Daniel Tiger's Neighborhood Segment
at Weatherbury Farm

Daniels Tiger's Neighborhood, an animated spin-off of Mr. Roger's Neighborhood filmed a "live" segment at Weatherbury Farm for an upcoming show on November 8th.

A sweater kid (remember Mr. Roger's sweaters?) watched Farmer Dale move the cattle and bottle fed a calf.



 Weatherbury Farm's Organic Grains Sweep
the 2016 Washington County Fair


Weatherbury's sheaf of Frederick Soft Wheat (which is ground into pastry flour) won 1st place and Judges Choice; our stalks of field corn won 1st with the largest ears and tallest stocks in the county.  It is no wonder then, that Weatherbury's corn bread (made from pastry flour and corn meal)   also took 1st place!

All in all, Weatherbury won 1 Judge's Choice, 11 firsts, 5 seconds and 4 thirds.

1st  Place Field Corn

Weatherbury Farm Milling Operation


The Mill at Weatherbury Farm is registered with the Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture, insuring that we adhere to safe food handling practices.  
All products are USDA certified organic .This means we use absolutely no GMO’s, no herbicides, no pesticides, no fungicides or synthetic fertilizers. Our grain is nourished with  compost, manure and green manure cover crops.

Wheat bread flour, wheat pastry flour, rye flour, spelt flour, buckwheat flour, cornmeal, polenta, black turtle beans and rolled oats are available. Detailed information about all of Weatherbury Farm's grain products is on the grain products page.

At Weatherbury Farm we do everything from putting the seed in the soil to putting the flour in the bag. Like many fine wines we consider our flour an “estate flour” imbued with the flavor of Southwestern Pennsylvania. Our customers can know exactly where the grain for their flour was grown and where it was milled.

Details about grain pick ups and pricing are on our grains page

Weatherbury Farm Vacations 2017

We are farming three times as much acreage as we did several years ago -- however, we still want folks to have the opportunity to experience life on the farm. We've made a few changes to our farm stay format for 2017 -- farm learning experience weekends, farm stay weekends with light chores and group stay opportunities.

In 2017, Weatherbury Farm will offer three types of farm stay opportunities on select Friday and Saturday nights in June, July & August:

1. Farm Learning Experience with a hearty farm fresh breakfast followed each day by in-depth morning chores. Weatherbury's educational farm experience stay is appropriate for adults and children (usually 8 & older) who want to learn more about farming and agriculture. The emphasis will be on the organic and sustainable production methods used at Weatherbury Farm.

2. Farm Stay with a light farm fresh breakfast. Light morning chores   --  collecting eggs and, perhaps feeding baby
animal(s) ** will be offered on Saturday and/or Sunday morning. Enjoy a relaxing escape to the tranquility of life in the slow lane and/or explore the countryside.  
** Subject to farmers' schedule

3. Group farm stays -- rent all three suites for a family & friends get-together. Light farm fresh breakfast. Light morning chores** will be offered on one or both mornings. Enjoy life on the farm and/or explore the countryside.
Dates other than those listed on the calendar are available. Please inquire. 
** Subject to farmers' schedule

Farm stay visitors are invited to participate in our Weatherbury Farm Kids Program.

At this time, we do not accept credit cards. Reservation deposit and final payment are by cash or check.

Weatherbury Farm Receives PCO Sustainability Award

Weatherbury Farm was honored to be one of two farms state-wide to receive the PCO Sustainability Award at the PCO annual meeting on February 2, 2012. 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!"


Something new is always happening at Weatherbury Farm!

Over 1400 children are now Weatherbury Farm Kids! Our Weatherbury Farm Kids Program is a great way for your children, grandchildren, nieces and/or nephews to learn about life on the farm. The Weatherbury Farm Kids Program is open to families who visit during a farm experience weekend.

Many families never leave the farm, but opportunities for bicycling & hiking,  fishing, horseback riding and golf abound in the area. A number of museums are conveniently located to the farm.  Covered bridges, farm markets, factory tours, shopping, sporting events, a winery, and  zoo offer other nearby places to visit during an escape to the tranquility of Weatherbury Farm.  Check out the area activities for more details.

Some great aerial views of Weatherbury Farm are now on-line, thanks to Kevin Sell, a Weatherbury Farm Jam  participant. Kevin brought these photos which he shot in October 2009 to our May 2010 jam.  It's these unexpected niceties that make being a farm vacation host a delight.

What's the best age to visit Weatherbury? (from our "winter emoos" emailed on February 19 2010)

One of the most asked questions prospective guests ask is "is my child a good age to visit Weatherbury Farm? The answer is that all children are the right age -- of course, different age groups take away different experiences from the farm.

So we though we would include some thank-you notes received from children this past summer:

"I love the farm The farm is the best place ever."  Age 5

"Dear Farmer Dale, I had so much fun on the farm and I'm glad that you do this for children." Age 8

"Dear Farmer Dale, Thank you for letting me do the chores in the morning. Also thank you for giving me my certificate at breakfast. I hope I can come back." Age 9

"Dear Tudor Family, Thanks for a wonderful farm vacation! I enjoyed it a lot? I had fun taking care of the animals. Thanks again!" Age 9

"Thanks, Tudor Family, for an Amazing farm vacation! I had a blast! I am sure you will see me again at the farm soon!" Age 13

"Dear Farmer Dale, Marcy & Nigel, We had a wonderful time this weekend learning about the operation of your cattle farm and your daily morning chores. Thanks so much!" Age 14 & 15

One mother of a toddler told us that we should charge more for toddlers (!) as the sensory and experiential stimuli are invaluable.

You might also enjoy reading 3 1/2 year old Vania's journal of her visit to the farm (in PDF format).

Hope to see you on the farm soon!
