To find more local farm stands and markets, check out the Fresh From Bucks County Farms Guide on the website of the Penn State Cooperative Extension, Bucks County. If you want to know where you can do “pick-your-own” produce, or who sells locally raised beef, it’s a great resource. According to the guide, the 2007 Census of Agricultural has ranked Bucks County as 20th in the nation in the category of Direct Sales by Farmers to Consumers for Human Consumption. Aren’t we lucky?
