Our Story

Forge Hill Farms is a family farm owned by Scott and Jennifer Simpson. We are grateful to be in our seventh year of running Forge Hill Farms CSA. It is a joint labor of love for us. We share a vision for the purpose, process, and future of Forge Hill.

We purchased the property in 2009 so that Scott could start an ornamental tree nursery alongside of his landscaping company. After fully moving into the renovated farmhouse in 2012, another idea emerged for the farm. Jennifer, with a lot of Scott's help, began to develop a plan for a CSA with the specific purpose of providing vocational skills for young adults who have neurodevelopmental disorders. This group of individuals typically age out of all support programs when they enter adulthood. The hope is to use the CSA to teach agricultural and outdoor management skills.

We are grateful to be in our third year of working with the Vanguard School, a program of the Valley Forge Educational Services. Through their Community Based Vocational Training (CBVT) program, we welcome students and job coaches to work in every aspect of our farm. Their hard work and continued partnership is helping Forge Hill Farms realize its goals of providing healthy, local food alongside vocational skills for young adults with neurodevelopmental disorders.
