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.
Those 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.
Open Gate 2014
Our 2014 Open Gate Farm Tour was a huge success! We always enjoy teaching the public about what we do on the farm, and this tour is a great way to do it. A special thank you to the Rural Preservation Association of the Northern Lehigh Valley for the delicious Food Court and Bake Sale. Also, thanks to Heidelberg Union Church for helping out with the pumpkin painting and Make-Your-Own Scarecrows. Watch here for more information on next year's Open Gate Farm Tour!

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.
