YES, there really is a Pete.
Pete began dairy farming on the Jones's farm, now the current site of the Bayard Rustin High School, in 1986. In 1989 he planted sweet corn on one-eighth of an acre and sold his harvest from the back of his pick up truck.
Deciding to concentrate solely on growing produce, he sold his cows in 1992 and opened his first stand. In 2000, Pete moved his operation to Westtown School. Built on 170 acres of the school's land, the large farm stands on the north side of Street Road/Route 926 and grows some of the finest produce in the area.
Pete, an active board member of the Chester County Food Bank, designates roughly 4 acres of land to grow for the less fortunate members of our community. Last year, we donated around 20,000 pounds of fresh produce to the Chester County Food Bank.
Customers and local chefs from all over the region travel for miles to purchase Pete's produce.
