You might try Gravity Hill farm in Titusville across the river (see their website) but they are not Read Moreusually cheap. I also found some heirloom tomatoes at Home Depot last week...not sure if they still have any. There is a farm stand out past Richboro that sells some nice plants and veggies too. It takes quite a lot of time and effort to be completely organic...so they are not...but she told me they use nothing on some things (like strawberries because they don't need any spraying) and as little as possible on other things. good luck!

I completely support Johnny's comments! While this issue may have many years of conversationRead Morebehind it, there is not currently a consensus or good solution on the table. There will always be tension between the rights of property owners who want peace and quiet (and to maintain their property values) and businesses who are engaged in legitimate enterprise. However, the sheer volume and noise of the traffic on Swamp Road is inconsistent with the quality of life that Newtown and surrounding area residents expect. There are vehicles going (barrelling) down Swamp Road at 3 in the morning. We could be living by the airport if you went by sound alone. As for "don't live there", well, Swamp Road is how long (15, 20 miles?). Not a helpful suggestion. And, there is no real estate "disclosure" for folks buying these houses that helps them understand the noise issue before purchase. I would appreciate a conversation about limiting traffic to normal business hours, enforcing speed and weight restrictions, installing "green" sound barriers along the roadside and providing alternative routes (that don't impinge on other residential areas). It would also be helpful to understand the life cycle of the quarries - is this a temporary problem or are they likely to provide a rumbling soundtrack to our backyard respite for many years to come?
