Natural Produce For the Masses
Our mission at SHEMPS Farm is twofold: First, we strive to provide a farm market for the local residents of Bellefonte and Central PA where they can enjoy fresh grown, high quality fruits, produce, and other specialty items. Secondly, we make it a rule to only partake in sustainable & responsible farming in order to lower our impact on the environment. Our Family Farm grows delicious farm-to-table ingredients for you and your family's next meal.
Since 2019 we’ve been growing our farm to provide fresh, local produce to the people of Central PA. SHEMPS Farm was created from a reestablishment of family roots in the Happy Valley. The Broker family established this farm in order to make a lasting impact on this area. Creating healthy and sustainable growth to provide our families with the best, most natural produce and fruits. We love opening our season with beautifully vibrant, greenhouse grown flowers for all. Our greenhouses stay operational most of the year, with our end goal being 'All-Year', in order to provide fresh, local fruits beyond their regular seasons. Experience the difference SHEMPS Farm makes.
Come by and enjoy our amazing products as well as events and activities all year long. Read on to learn more about our operations, products and activities.
