Their interest in developing community led them to incorporate a café and many more useful and needed product lines. They sourced locally before it became fashionable, and included Kimberton Hills products from the beginning. To help meet Kimberton Hills' needs, they offered wholesale prices for bulk items, and continue to do so to this day.
As their business expanded, they took it to several area communities, and with those new stores, their vision of wholesome, organic locally sourced (where possible) foods. They collaborate with distributers to create more visibility for good food, and educate their consumers through newsletters, events, and in-store educational materials. They have opened their Kimberton Store for educational and charitable events, and have encouraged good citizenship through their examples, as well. They have led in sustainable areas beyond agriculture -- for instance, in business, ecology, and community building. They can be counted on to help support local charitable, artistic, and educational events, and of course, the efforts to create a more walkable and sustaining community in Kimberton.
Perhaps most people know them most for their incredibly deep work ethic and commitment to doing all they can to meet needs of their customers and community. Luckily they have a family of progeny that has also supported the business and the work it has taken to build and sustain it. They remain people whom one likes to meet when visiting the store-- friendly, interesting, interest-ed, knowledgeable, and deeply committed to living their ideals. They are wonderful people and strong friends of Kimberton Hills, where Terry served on the Board, and a significant power for good in our region.
Terry and Pat, thank you, for all you do in this community and beyond!
