Farm Description

The original family farm was purchased in 1693. Frank and his son Bob Phillips are the tenth and eleventh generation to work this land. Frank?s grandfather planted the original apple and peach orchards with assistance from Cook College in 1901. Frank got his start selling apples to the public from a wagon during the second world war. Today most of the farm is dedicated to raising pasture fed beef and hay. The farm market located on route 537 in Jobstown started out in 1972 on a picnic table 15 feet from the road. In 1977 the Phillips built the market we visit today. With the help of his wife Mimi and son Bob the market has grown and diversified to offer a wide array of freshly prepared foods. They are most known for their homemade pies. Visitors can watch as the Phillips and their staff prepare and cook the fresh fruit fillings and roll out the pastry to make the wide assortment of pies.
