Shady Brook Farm: Growing Family Fun



For more than 100 years, the Fleming family has been building a local legacy in Shady Brook Farm and their main crop is growing fun events for families to enjoy. 

To understand Shady Brook Farm's present as one of the last working farms in Bucks County, visitors have come to appreciate its past.

T. Herman Fleming founded the farm in Andalusia in 1913 to grow wholesale crops for Philadelphia area markets. Since then, the Flemings moved to Lower Makefield and added more than 100 acres. 

Dave Fleming sees his job as creating a romantic feeling on the farm by helping people make memories with events for every crop and season. 

That's why the farm offers special events and festivals like Strawberry Days, Peach Festival, PumpkinFest, an annual Easter Egg Hunt, wine concerts and pick-your-own crops.

Shady Brook Farm's "agritainment" has expanded from a haunted hayride in the 1990s to other attractions, including a giant corn maze at Horrorfest. The farm's famous holiday light show has also grown with millions of lights.

The farm market is open year-round and provides locally grown produce, deli and dairy products and gardening needs. 

Dave encourages visitors to explore all the things to see and do in Bucks County and at Shady Brook Farm like playing on the playground, enjoying Uncle Dave's Homemade Ice Cream and sipping on a glass of Rose Bank Winery wine.  Shady Brook Farm also offers parties and tours.
