Churchview Farm – A Third Generation Family Farmette

Churchview Farm is a small sustainable family farmette in the South Hills of Pittsburgh. The Farm is a teaching and learning space where we grow (non certified) organic food for our CSA workshares and volunteers, student interns, local chefs, and on-Farm educational and culinary events. We do not currently sell our produce, but we are happy to show the Farm by appointment only. Send us an email to schedule a time.

In the late 1930s Tara’s grandparents, Emil and Hilda Rockacy, purchased thirteen acres of land in the South Hills of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. They built the existing farmhouse and fed their family with the produce they grew and preserved, and the meat and dairy from the animals
they raised, utilizing all-natural growing methods.

In 2007 Tara Rockacy moved to the farm and began the process of restoring it to a working piece of land. Respecting tradition and the ecosystem of the farm, she continues to raise food without the use of chemicals, pesticides, or herbicides. Churchview Farm employs sustainable agricultural practices and respects all aspects of the farm by nurturing the soil, treating the animals humanely, and complimenting the natural ecosystem.
