About Us

Willis Ardry, along with his three sons Wayne, Mark & Tom, are the owners of Ardry Farms. You will most likely see Mark and his wife, Samantha, at the outdoor Boalsburg Market. The Ardry family has been growing produce for over 90 years. Not only do they participate in The Boalsburg, North Atherton and Original Bellefonte Farmers' Markets, but they also supply local restaurants and grocery stores like Wegmans and Save-A-Lot with seasonal produce.

Mark's great grandfather purchased the farm in 1933. He attended the Renovo Farmers' Market and also made house calls back in the 1920s before he started vending at the Bellefonte Farmers' Market in 1936. Today, the family grows an array of produce from sweet corn to tomatoes, beans, potatoes, strawberries and even melons. And somehow they still find time to raise beef cattle and keep chickens, as well.

Ardry Farms is located halfway from Bellefonte to Lock Haven, just off of route 64 in Snydertown not far from the Hublersburg Inn.


Samantha Ardry is a baker who focuses on using ingredients sourced directly from Ardry Farms and other local businesses in Centre County, including Meyer Dairy, Snavely's Mill and Way Fruit Farm. Sam went to culinary school in New York City, then lived and worked all over the country. She finally made her way back to Pennsylvania and eventually met Mark Ardry at the Boalsburg Market while working for Gemelli Bakers. You can find her selling produce and baked goods alongside her husband Mark and brother Tom at the Ardry stand.

Sam makes everything from scratch in the farm kitchen and availability of items is always changing with the seasons! Look for classic items with a twist like pecan pie bars. During the heat of the summer, be sure to indulge in a homemade popsicle made with fresh local fruit. Sam is also happy to bake a special cake or pie for a celebration.
