SHADY BROOK FARM: GROWING FAMILY FUN
Fun is always in season at Shady Brook Farm!
For more than 100 years, the Fleming family has been
building a local legacy down on the farm. Their main crop is growing entertaining events for families to enjoy.
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.
Throughout the year, the farm helps people create memories with seasonal special events and festivals.
