Our nature preserves are open to the public 365 days per year, providing natural places that offer peace and respite for all. We do love dogs, however... Because it is an important bird area (IBA) for nesting grassland birds who are very sensitive to the presence of dogs, they are not allowed at Kirkwood … Learn more about our nature preserves.
We are excited to welcome you back to Rushton Farm ( 911 Delchester Road, Newtown Square) to celebrate our 13th Tomato Tasting!
Thanks to this summer’s hot weather, we’re anticipating a bountiful harvest of plump, juicy and delicious tomatoes, so come out and enjoy a tasty menu featuring Rushton’s tomatoes! We’ll also have Bob’s Famous Gazpacho; Cherry Tomato, Basil & Mozarella Skewers; Chutney and more! Cold beer, chilled wine, live music and good company will complete the evening.
Some featured tomatoes from Rushton Farm include Early Girl, Eva Purple Ball, and a Jubilee. Then there’s the ever-colorful Striped German and the granddaddy of them all: Brandywine. Each of our three successions of tomato plantings includes several additional varieties to complete our tomato production. Each variety is unique in both taste and appearance and we urge you to try them all and tell us your favorites!
