Strawberry picking season was very short this year. There are very few left.
But, we do have a beautiful crop of veggies right now: lettuces, kale, broccoli, Swiss Chard, beans,
and more each day.
Our delicious slushie drinks are back,
and we anticipate corn and pick-your-own flowers and blueberries by the end of June. We have gloves and hand sanitizer available, but please use a face covering until further notice.
A MESSAGE FROM THE FARM
My name is Gary McKeown and I have dedicated every day of my life to running and working Maple Acres Farm. It is my life’s mission to keep this farm alive to preserve this loved land of open space and with all the new construction happening in this county it is more important than ever.
This farm has been a part of our family for 100 years and it is very important to me to continue to share this space and all its offerings with our community.
Maple Acres is the last working farm in Plymouth Township and its preservation is created by the love and support of our family and community members like you.
I love waking up every morning working to preserve these natural grounds and provide farm fresh offerings for my community.
Farming is my life and I thank you all for supporting Maple Acres Farm since 1916 and being a part of our community…our family.
and The Maple Acres Family
THE HISTORY OF MAPLE ACRES
Purchased in 1916 when it was just 12 acres, Maple Acres Farm has been a landmark of Plymouth Township for more than a century. The farm has been a generational contribution to the community where mothers, fathers, uncles, grandparents, great-grandparents, sons and daughters, have lived and worked the farmland on Narcissa Road, right here in Plymouth Meeting for four generations.
Gary McKeown has preserved the Maple Acres Farm, named by his mother Millie, as it expanded to thirty acres over the years. Today, Gary and his family still live in the 18th-century farmhouse that he grew up in."Farming is my life,” says Gary McKeown, and he is now focused on preserving the land and continuing the family generational duty of sharing the farmland with the community.

Purchased in 1912 when it was just 12 acres, Maple Acres Farm has been around more than a century. "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.
