Farms and Farmers' Markets

Pennsylvania has a rich and diverse history of farming which has permeated every aspect of life here in the Poconos.

This guide to the many farms in the Poconos lists those farms that offer open doors to the public.

You are invited to view and even participate in many of the operations that take place on the farm.

Taking home locally grown produce and farm fresh products is not only fun, but is healthy for you, your family and the environment.

Poconos Farms and Farmers' Markets


Farms and Farmers' Markets

Many of the local farms that you find in the Poconos can trace their origins to family members that worked the land over a century ago. Toady's farmers struggle to compete with large-scale agribusiness economically, but there is no competition when it comes to food quality and freshness that you'll find at one of our local farms and markets.

When you buy local produce, fruit, cheeses, eggs and meat from a local farmer, you not only support a long cultural history, but you buy something that is much better for you to eat.

While all four counties of the Poconos have farms, the majority are located in Wayne and Carbon counties and to a lesser extent Monroe county.

Many farms have special areas set aside to entertain you and your kids. From rides on farm equipment to the unusual like pumpkin cannon firing.
