About Freedom Farms
Freedom Farms is an evolving family business of local farmers, bakers, and chefs, working together to provide the highest quality food in western PA.
Our mission is to set the community’s standard in freshly picked produce, delectable baked goods, nutritionally dense meat, and family-oriented service. At Freedom Farms, we are truly born to farm.
Freedom Farms is comprised of four locations:
Farming is King
It all begins at the farm, where we grow our produce and raise our livestock. From there, along with the help of other local farms in our Freedom Farms network, we sell our goods in our Farmers Market as well as at traveling farmers markets in the Pittsburgh area. We also use them as ingredients in the local food we hand craft at the Donut Shop and the Sandwich Shop. It’s a big interconnected system that thrives on one main idea: providing locally grown, natural products and education to everyone who wants them.
Many people know about our farm and the King family from our show, Farm Kings, that aired on Great American Country. We credit much of the success of Farm Kings to the way that our family collaborates and pulls together to overcome challenges and hardships. Everyone plays their own unique role in the day-to-day operations of Freedom Farms, and everyone does their part helping each other where they’re needed.
We also publish a yearly calendar of the family and our farm, as well as Freedom Farms magazine to keep our fans and people interested in the farming lifestyle up to date with the latest in Freedom Farms and general farming news.
Though we are always looking for new ways to expand and better serve our community, Freedom Farms will never be an industrial farming operation. We prefer to serve our customers directly, because we find that interaction more rewarding than selling produce in bulk to a corporation. We like that our customers know us, and we like that we know them.
The History of Freedom Farms
While Freedom Farms may be less than a decade old, our business has done some pretty incredible things in a short amount of time and we take pride in how much we have grown.
Since we opened the Freedom Farms Farmers Market to sell produce from Kings Farm in June 2009, we’ve not only expanded into a full business model of growing the food on our farms and selling it to the community at our traveling farmers markets and through our Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) program. Now, with our Sandwich Shop in Butler, PA, we can truly put a farm fresh meal on the table.
And the King family somehow had time to film four seasons of Great American Country’s Farm Kings along the way!
