BROOK LAWN FARM MARKET
Roy and Ruth Erb began farming in 1938, raising a variety of field crops and vegetables.
A few years later they planted the first orchards with apples and peaches, and added
production of sweet corn, peas, beans, tomatoes, and potatoes.
In 1954, Roy built a temporary structure (pictured below) along the Lititz Pike in order
to sell produce to customers. This first stand was dismantled and removed from the site
at the end of each season. In 1960, a permanent structure began to take shape. Further
construction over the years gradually expanded the retail floor space, work areas, cooler
facilities, and parking lot.
Today, Farmer Jim supervises farm production and harvest. His wife Romaine and
daughter Diana manage the roadside market. Brook Lawn Farm utilizes environmentally
responsible production practices including reduced tillage and no-till operations,
water-conserving drip irrigation systems and integrated pest management. We strive to
be good stewards of the land.
So then neither is he that planteth... neither he that watereth, but God that gives the
increase. ~ I Corinthians 3:7
