Ben Wenk (Grower, Retail, Wholesale Delivery, Partner)

Ben Wenk, Three Springs Fruit FarmHi folks! My name is Ben Wenk, seventh generation to farm in our little corner of Adams County. I'm a 2006 graduate of Penn State's Agroecology program, minoring in Horticulture. I returned to our family farm not long after that, responding to an email seeking out vendors for Philadelphia's new Headhouse Farmers Market. Since February of 2007, I've managed our weekly trips to farmers markets in Philadelphia and the Baltimore and Washington DC areas and grown the small fruit and vegetables to supply these markets. Through this retail operation, I've picked up a number of wholesale opportunities and I'd be eager to schedule delivery of our local fruits and vegetables to your business in and around these towns. Much in part to my experience working in the Entomology Department at the Penn State Fruit Research and Extension Center, I've also been put in charge of insect scouting and monitoring on all of our fruit acres - a large part of our effort in reducing our sprays here at Three Springs. I'd like to thank you for your interest in our farm and your support of the "buy local" movement! See you at market!
