UPDATE: The article below is about an event from years’ past. For the most up-to-date happenings around Nemacolin, please visit the What’s Happening page of the website.
A scroll through the Churchview Farm Instagram page reveals a rainbow of color and foods which jump off the screen. Bright tomatoes, a red currant puree, and fermented radishes are some of what you’ll see. In November, a cornucopia of flavors is coming from the farm to Nemacolin for the Preservation Dinner at Aqueous.
Churchview Farm is a small, sustainable family farmette located in the South Hills area of Pittsburgh. The farm’s history harkens back to the 1930s, when Emil and Hilda Rockacy purchased 13 acres of land, built a farmhouse, and fed their family with the fruits, vegetables, meat, and dairy products they naturally grew and raised.
