More About the Farm

Farm Managers April and Johnny
Edible Earth Farm was founded by April Parker in 2010. It started as a micro-farm, on five acres, in Tionesta, PA. In 2011, Johnny joined his wife at the farm full-time. Every year the farm expanded. In 2016, the farm was spread across five properties and was a challenge to manage. In 2017, the Parker's purchased a larger farm in Mercer County. Edible Earth Farm is now located in Sandy Lake, Pennsylvania and is a highly diversified fruit, vegetable, mushroom and livestock operation situated on 85 acres.

The Parker's are passionate about farming, food, nature and sustainability. They are committed to growing a wide variety of high-quality

Johnny and April grew up in the rich farming communities of Central Pennsylvania. They moved to Pittsburgh after April graduated from Penn State. While living in Pittsburgh, they became involved in the local food movement and began to plot the return to their farming roots.


Johnny spent his teenage years working on an organic farm after school, on weekends and during his Summer breaks. Before moving to Pittsburgh, he had a stint working at a French restaurant and learned under the chef and owner. At a young age, he developed a love for food. After moving to Pittsburgh with April, he pursued an education and career in computer science and software engineering. Before leaving to farm, Johnny was the Director of IT at Carnegie Mellon University.

At the same time, April continued her education in the areas of herbalism and aromatherapy and incorporates her knowledge into the farm and its products. She started Cloud 9 Aromatherapy in 1997.
