Vegetable Power Farm
- ABOUT US -
Steve Merkel and Shazana Goff started a certified naturally grown farm from the ground up in the Spring of 2018. For many years, Shazana helped run a community farm in Philadelphia called La Finquita (The Little Farm) that was eventually pushed out by big development.
Steve discovered his love of farming while cultivating gardens in backyards and on rooftops.
They rented land and grew food at The Schuylkill Environmental Center in Roxborough, Philadelphia for 2 years as a small farm trial run. During those 2 years, they realized they needed to find land to start a farm. They've been living and farming in Germansville, PA, a beautiful rural pocket in the Lehigh Valley at the foothills of the Appalachian mountains, since April of 2018.
They are dedicated to using all natural and sustainable farming practices. Currently they have 60 chickens, 3 goats, and 3 dogs! This 2021 season they are growing food for a CSA and farm stand, as well as selling their delicious free range eggs! Shazana is also growing about a 1/4 acre of cut flowers to offer beautiful bouquets.
There are 20 week and 10 week Veggie and/or Egg CSA options for the 2021 season, running from June through October, and an 8 week Flower CSA in August and September.

Pick up will be Sundays at Liberty Lands Park from 2-5 pm. June through October!
