Wyck House - Home Farm

Home Farm

For more than 250 years, Wyck existed as a working farm. Today that legacy continues with Wyck's Home Farm. With the support of the Samuel S. Fels Fund, the Home Farm was established in 2007. Large vegetable and herb gardens are designed with paths wide enough for easy walking. Strawberry and two raspberry beds exist, along with fruit trees, an asparagus bed, a cutting garden, and a large grape arbor. The various gardens are managed according to traditional gardening techniques, and no synthetic chemicals are used. Produce from the Home Farm is sold at Wyck’s seasonal, on-site weekly Farmers Market. The produce is available to neighbors at below market prices. We have partnered with the Food Trust to serve as many people as possible, regardless of their means. We accept vouchers from the federally funded Farmers Market Nutrition Program as well as food stamps.

Currently, Wyck’s Farmers Market provides the sole opportunity to buy beautifully grown, extremely fresh produce in the immediate neighborhood. In 2008, approximately 2,800 people visited the Farmers Market over the course of its seven-month season. Unlike at most urban Farmers Markets, Wyck market-goers have the opportunity to stroll through the gardens and see where and how their food is grown, and Wyck garden staff is always available to answer questions about growing and using fresh food. Wyck’s surplus produce is sold to area restaurants and at the Fair Food Farmstand at the Reading Terminal Market, or donated to neighborhood senior centers.
