Tait Farms

We are located just minutes from State College and The Pennsylvania State University. Marian and Elton Tait purchased the Tait Farm in 1950. They were both Penn State graduates working for Agricultural Extension. Their new hobby farm was just the place to raise their 3 children (Sandy, David and John), as well as sheep, chickens, hogs, horses, and a few Basset hound dogs and Christmas Trees. 

In the summer of 1986, a bumper crop of raspberries was hanging on the canes while it rained buckets for nearly 2 weeks. Rather than allow the fruit to rot, it was picked and frozen for winter sales. After several unsuccessful attempts to sell the frozen raspberries, a family friend reminded David Tait of an old Colonial beverage called Raspberry Shrub. Shrub is made by preserving fresh fruit in vinegar and sweetening it with sugar, it was the perfect solution! This concentrate is then mixed with water (or spirits) to make a delicious sweet, tart beverage. The first bottles of Raspberry Shrub were made in David’s kitchen on the farm in 1987, and since that time has grown into a line of more than 50 value-added products.

It is like whole blueberries explode in your mouth when you take a sip!
