What we do
Purchased by the McCausland family in 2009, this tranquil and verdant land is home to prize winning Cheviot Sheep, Black Angus cattle, and elegant Morgan Horses. As stewards of the land, we at the farm work to preserve and protect this special place everyday. Situated on close to 450 acres, Erdenheim Farm remains one of the last sanctuaries of pastoral life within the greater Philadelphia area.
Erdenheim Farm Foundation Explorer Camp was established in 2021. The camp offers children a full farm experience, which sets us apart from a traditional camp. Our camp is multi-age, campers entering kindergarten through 12 years old. This design allows for peer-to-peer learning, where our older campers act as role models, demonstrating and assisting our youngest campers with daily activities.
We take pride in our crops and grow them using traditional methods without the heavy use of chemicals.
We are happy to provide the community with food through the Erdenheim Farm Stand. You can order a variety of goods including raw honey, greens, eggs, and grass-fed beef.
