About Us
Avella, PA | Certified Organic | Member Since 2016

The land that makes up Weatherbury Farm in Avella, PA has been farmed since 1815. Then, the farm was called Extravagence, a name that no doubt turned a few heads. The fourth, and current owners, the Tudor family, have been operating Weatherbury Farm since 1986. While most people think of produce, meat, and dairy when they think of local food, Weatherbury Farm is unique because it grows local, Certified Organic grains.

Weatherbury began by raising beef cattle, switching to grass-fed beef in 2007 and adding in certified grains in 2009 (for straw). Their table top mill led to their current stone mill and the milling of their first certified organic estate flours in April 2014.

Weatherbury's offerings now include wheat, oats, spelt, open-pollinated corn, emmer, and einkorn. When asked about his favorite part of farming, Nigel replied "Long tractor drives through sunny fields (a farmer’s version of taking long walks on the beach)."

Check out Weatherbury's website for their famed recipes! The Tudors love enjoying the products from their farm, from cornbread to buckwheat pancakes to spelt chocolate chip cookies. Did someone say local pizza?

At Weatherbury Farm we grow most of our own seed, we plant it, we nurture it, we harvest it and we grind it into wholesome flour for you. Like many fine wines we consider our flour an “estate flour” as everything from putting the seed in the ground to putting the flour in the bag is done here at Weatherbury Farm. The fertile silt loam soil of our rolling hills contributes to the character and flavor of our grain.

Weatherbury Farm has always had a strong commitment to sustainable agriculture practices. In 2012, Nigel Tudor and his family were one of two farms selected to win the PA Certified Organic Sustainability Award, and in 2017, Sustainable Pittsburgh recognized Weatherbury Farm as a Gold Level Sustainable Small Business.
