Greetings to You!!
Richard and Nancy Frush
We are truly blessed with three lovely grown children: Alex, Rachel, & Sonia.  (Our oldest son, Dennis, left this life July 22, 2012).  And 10 spectacular grandchildren:  Aidan, Leiham, Simone, Helena, Ruby, Charlotte, Kana, Tara, Kiyomi, and Miyuki!
In 2005, we purchased the 6.5 acre farm.  Most of the land was pastureland for horses, the remainder in lawns.  The original 210 year old farm included more than 150 acres.  But as years passed, most of the land was subdivided and sold.  Sandstone from the original bank barn was used to build the 2-story studio apartment, garage and farm store.  The barn was built about 30 years ago. 
During the spring of 2006, we started the first section of vegetable gardens. Goats and chickens were added.  Each year additional vegetable gardens
were created.  In 2008, the first vegetables were grown and sold to customers by advertising through temporary signs along the road.  
Our Frush Farm Store officially opened in the spring of 2009.  We offer our customers a wide variety of fresh fruits, vegetables, greens, herbs, jams, canned goods, and brown eggs from happy, free-ranging chickens.  (Visit the "Produce" page for additional information.)
Frush Farm Bed & Breakfast opened November 16, 2015.  It features 3 rooms in the farmhouse, a first floor suite and an 1,100 sq. ft. studio apartment  above the garage!  We offer those who stay here a truly "down to earth" experience!  Although wireless TV and WiFi are available, we recommend our visitors disconnect and truly immerse in the outdoor environment of our farm. (Visit the "Bed & Breakfast" page for details.)  
A wide variety of flowering plants, many which are native species to Pennsylvania, can be found throughout the property.  Jack-in-the-Pulpit, Butterfly Weed, Blood Root, Joe Pye Weed, Sunchokes, Milkweed, and other wild flowers grow here.  Flowers are mingled in with herbs and other edibile plants.  Pollinating birds, bees, butterflies, and other insects come to the delights of the many flowering species. Praying Mantis and lady bugs can be found, helping to control the populations of damaging insects.
Our goal is to create an eco-friendly environment that provides a fragile balance between production of healthy, safe foods for human consumption and a place for living organism to thrive free of adverse impact.  This includes fresh air, fresh water, clean living conditions, and naturally grown foods for our animals and us. 
We strive to reduce our dependence on utilities and our imprint on the environment:
A wood stove heats the 1st floor of the house. 
A solar electric fence keeps the animals "in".
A well & hand pump near the barn supplies fresh water for the animals, as well as for humans! 
We recycle almost everything!
We even hang our clothes "out" to dry!
When the electric power goes "out", we can continue to remain in our house, with heat, water, and cooking opportunities available, not only for us, but for our animals. 
So, we hope you come and visit and enjoy the rich beauty and flavors of Frush Farm!  Once you have tasted the fresh, naturally grown vegetables and fruits, there is no turning back!!!  And once you have spent a few days with us, you will want more!!!
