Local Farm Spotlight: Hess Farms

Farm name: Hess Farms
Farmer: Harlan Hess
Location: Waynesboro, Pennsylvania
Items grown: Zucchini, Squash, Eggplant, Cucumbers, Green Peppers, Tomatoes, Apples, Sweet Corn, and a few varieties of Hard Squash 

Harlan's family has been growing crops since 1986 and he's a second generation farmer! His beautiful 140 acre farm sits in a modest town called Waynesboro.

Hungry Harvest provides an easily and logical avenue to send my off grade produce that larger retailers and other big produce industry players would never accept. It allows the grower a security blanket to receive a return for quality produce, while also ensuring that we are limiting, if not eliminating our waste on the fields.
