to Mike Fink's Produce
Mike Fink is a fifth generation of the Fink family to continue farming. The family farm, Heidel Hollow Farm, Inc., is located along the southern slope of the Appalachian Mountains in Lehigh County, Pennsylvania.
Mike Fink started working with vegetables for 4-H projects at an early age. By the age of 18, he had over 25 acres of vegetables in production for wholesale and retail sales.
These 25 acres grew into what is today 1,000 acres of sweet corn, pumpkins, zucchini, cucumbers, winter squash, cauliflower, and broccoli. The farm orchard also provides apples, peaches, and Asian pears.
In 2009, Mike and Melanie decided to expand the business at Heidel Hollow Farm and began producing bedding plants, hanging baskets and vegetable plants in 3 greenhouse structures at Heidel Hollow. Various types of annual flowers and bedding plants are grown for sale at Water Wheel Farm Stand, and also in the farm store at Heidel Hollow.

We are thrilled to be participating again this year, and have some new and exciting activities planned. As always, we will offer hayrides to our pick-your-own pumpkin patch, demonstrations of our hay compression operation, a make-your-own scarecrow activity, demonstrations by "Bee Man" Lee Schleicher, and sales area for our full range of fall produce and chrysanthemums. We hope that you and your family will join us for this fun-filled event. Visit Lehigh County Open Gate Farm Tour for more information.
Water Wheel Update
Water Wheel Farm Stand is currently closed for the season. We plan to reopen on May 2, 2014 with weekend hours, just in time for Mother's Day!
Heidel Hollow Farm is “Going Green!”
In 2011, we added a Solar Energy System at Heidel Hollow Farm to help with our energy needs here on the farm. These 896 Panels are mounted on 64 poles overlooking the farm. The system is expected to supply about 240 Megawatts of energy annually, which will either be used here on the farm or fed back into the power grid.
