Longview Center for Agriculture

The Longview Center for Agriculture is a regional hub for reconnecting the land, the community, and food. The center consists of 90 acres of certified organic farmland, which includes an organic fruit orchard and an on-site Farmer's Market.

The center hosts many events like the weekly Lost Arts Workshop. They also serve as a connection point for farm-based education in the area's elementary schools.

The on-site farmer's market provides the community with local foods grown on site or at nearby farms. They carry products that are local and humanely raised and that support independent small farms. They clearly have
a commitment to the community!

The Longview Center for Agriculture is a great place to take children to explore their senses. Children are encouraged to get down and dirty and explore all that the farm has to offer from picking flowers, tomatoes, and even apples.

Currently, blackberries are in season and ripe for the picking! It will be hard for you not to leave with a ton of blackberries. Make sure you bring a container or bag to collect them in {and plenty of wipes!}.

 The Longview Center for Agriculture is located 3125 Stump Hall Road in Collegeville, Pennsylvania.
