Tom Murtha and Tricia Borneman have been farming together for 12 years. They have worked on organic farms in Connecticut, Oregon, New Jersey and Pennsylvania and have been involved in all matters of diverse vegetable production and marketing. When they returned to Bucks County where Tricia grew up, they became fully committed to preserving and encouraging the rich agricultural heritage of their region.
Blooming Glen strives to be good stewards of the land by maintaining and enhancing soil, water and air quality through sustainable farming practices. They encourage and support a small farm ecosystem of diverse plants, birds and pollinators. Their crops are grown without synthetic fertilizers, pesticides, herbicides or genetically modified organisms. They use compost, cover crops, mulching and crop rotation to encourage healthy soil and plants and to build long term fertility. They believe a healthy body is inseparable from a healthy soil. In order to be a healthy economically viable farm, it is important to have both a diversity of crops, and a diversity of markets.
Tom & Tricia’s goal is to always provide the highest quality product to all of their customers. Through the CSA experience they hope to encourage a sense of place by reconnecting people with the land that sustains them.
