Here in Bucks County, PA agriculture is our heritage and future. Patterson Farm land has continuously produced food for 337 years. The abundantly-fertile Patterson Farm soil is currently rented and farmed by the Stewart family, local farmers who have a 5-generation legacy of growing award-winning produce. They are committed to responsible stewardship of the land.
Produce grown on Patterson Farm is available at the Charlann Farms farm store at 586 Stony Hill Road, Yardley, PA.
Patterson Farms open fields, wetlands and woodlands host an array of wildlife. Photography enthusiasts, artists and nature lovers enjoy the open vistas where they are likely to spot songbirds, amphibians, raptors, waterfowl and mammals. Patterson Farm is a place of refuge for the animals who share our world. Patterson Farm enthusiasts enjoy the serenity of its bucolic open spaces.
In the days before written history, Native Americans made their home on the land we now know as Patterson Farm. In 1683 Quaker immigrant Thomas Janney and his family arrived from England to settle the land and begin anew after escaping religious persecution. For more than three centuries Patterson Farm has endured through times of abundance and lack. Each successive owner added their unique contribution to the farms history. Those contributions write the pages of history that tell the American story.
We stand for preservation, gathering 4000+ signatures on our Change.org petition. We're strong advocates for preservation of local agriculture and history.
For years our members steadfastly lobbied Lower Makefield Township officials for a farmland preservation easement to protect Patterson Farms precious land. That easement was finally achieved in 2017, protecting a majority of the farm.
We've exposed illegal discharge of industrial waste water at Brightfarms, leading the PA DEP to issue a fine for violation of Clean Streams Act.
There's much to do and our numbers are growing. Since our incorporation in 2015, Patterson Farm Preservation members have collaborated with citizens, businesses and civic organizations to further the cause for farm preservation, generate funds and bring educational events to the public. The "Friends of Patterson Farm Preservation" on social media number over 2,500. Contact us to lend your talent to this worthy effort.
Each donation helps further the preservation effort. We sincerely appreciate the time, talents, labor and financial support our community has invested in the cause for preservation of historic Patterson Farm.
