Welcome to the Dillner Family Farm
owned and operated by Don and Jane Dillner and family

Our sustainable farm is a third generation family-owned fruit and vegetable farm located in West Deer Township in Gibsonia, Pennsylvania since the 1940’s. During the growing season, we participate every week in several Pittsburgh Area Farmers' Markets, providing fresh locally grown produce. On the farm we have a farm stand open from Mid May to Mid November. There are eight greenhouse structures (high tunnels) to extend our growing season. Raspberries bushes and blueberry bushes complement our vegetable production. Don and I are excited to announce that we have expanded our fruit and vegetable production on our new farm in Summit Township in Butler County.

For the last 10 years, the Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) program is a successful part of our farm business and we are happy to offer it each year to our customers.

Don and I would like to thank all of our CSA members  for another successful year. We hope you have enjoyed our farm harvest throughout the 2014 season!

 If you are interested in our CSA for 2015, please email us and we will add you to our waiting list.

A Sustainable Farm 
Our method of farming is sustainable agriculture. We use the least amount of material necessary for crop protection. We start most of the plants in our greenhouse, and then transplant them to our high tunnels and fields. The high tunnels extend our growing season by 4 weeks earlier in the spring and 4 weeks later in the fall. We use integrated pest management (IPM), which is good bugs eliminating bad bugs.  We mulch our fields with straw bales for weed control that will get turned under to add to the next years organic matter in the soil. We use bag fertilizer that is dispensed into the soil as we form the row for laying black plastic mulch (with a machine).
