About Us

Purchased in 1912 when it was just 12 acres, Maple Acres Farm nears its centennial celebration. "There's something to be said for staying in one spot for so long." Sage words of Brian McCracken but his mother, uncles, grandparents, great-grandparents, have lived and worked the farmland on Narcissa Road, right behind the Plymouth Meeting Mall, for four generations.

"I've been farming all my life" says Gary McKeown. Gary has preserved the Maple Acres Farm, named by his mother Millie, as it expanded to thirty acres. "My father would pick corn for me to sell after school as soon as I was old enough to count money." Gary still lives in the 18th-century farmhouse that he grew up in, a workload unto itself.

"There's so much to running this place. It's not the same farm it was fifty years ago." says Gary McKeown. "You wake up each day thinking you're going to do one thing and end up doing another."
