Rising Hill Farm
Rising Hill Farm is a small flower farm operated by Amber Lagonegro and a close group of family and friends. Amber was moved to become a farmer in part because of the failings of our current industrial agricultural food system. She studied Environmental Science at Delaware Valley University in Doylestown, Pa, and worked at various area farms from her teenage years through her twenties. After a few seasons of growing vegetables for market and subscription customers, she decided to refocus her energy on producing sustainable cut flowers. At Rising Hill Farm, we want to offer people products that they can feel good about purchasing. Our crops are grown with out the use of manufactured pesticides, herbicides or fertilizers. Instead, we rely on sustainable systems to nourish our plants. We build soil nutrition with our homemade compost, cover crops and manure from our chickens and ducks. We rely on native insects for pest control and pollination, and do what we can to maintain an environment in which they will thrive. We mulch to discourage weed growth, and use minimal tillage so that natural soil organisms can flourish. Most of our work is completed by hand, minimizing fossil fuel consumption here on our farm. Purchasing your flowers and food from us and other sustainable farmers can help to protect the world that we love. Thanks for being a part of our journey.
