Experience the benefits of a farm-to-table community at Amblebrook

Amblebrook is a farm‑to‑table community that is deeply rooted in Pennsylvania’s rich agricultural heritage. Our amenities, products, and experiences are designed to promote a lifestyle of everyday joy. From the authentic Harvest House and lively Heartland Market & Café to our high‑tech demonstration kitchen at Rock Creek Clubhouse–and so much more–we offer on‑site activities, features, and surroundings that nourish a rewarding active adult lifestyle.  

Amblebrook farm to table

Harvesting happiness from the heartland.

What does it mean to be a farm‑to‑table community? At Amblebrook, it all begins with our iconic Gettysburg, Pennsylvania location. Nestled in Adams County—home to over 20,000 acres of fruit orchards—Amblebrook is your home base for easy access to local produce. Thriving as a bountiful region for over a century, the historic South Mountain Fruit Belt is the heart and soul of fresh nourishment.  Here, healthy eating is rooted in lush soils, sweet sunshine, and fortifying showers. 

As a community that is focused on farm‑to‑table living, we understand that agriculture is more than planting and plowing; it fuels better living.  While delivering nourishing harvests and wholesome produce that cultivate energy and well‑being, local farmers use effective conservation techniques to ensure healthy soil for generations to come. Thanks to the generosity of groups such as Adams County’s Land Conservancy, thousands of acres have been forever preserved.  

Amblebrook Days of Joy

Celebrating local bounty.

A farm‑to‑table community offers abundant opportunities to embrace nature’s goodness and share in local harvests. During National Fruit & Vegetables Month in June, folks at Amblebrook celebrated summer’s bounty during the Days of Joy event. From farmers markets and children’s programs to local concerts and festivals, here’s a recap of recent farm‑to‑table activities along with a preview of upcoming fun in the Gettysburg area this summer:

Nurturing a healthy lifestyle.

Knowing that nutritious eating and daily exercise go hand‑in‑hand, Amblebrook is an active adult community in Gettysburg where farm‑to‑table meets health and fitness. Later this year, we’ll launch Rock Creek Fitness Center, a state‑of‑the‑art facility that will feature 24,000 square feet of spaces, equipment, and activities devoted to health and well‑being.  Specially equipped for strength and cardio workouts, yoga, Pilates, and dance classes, ball games, physical therapy sessions, as well as services and programs sponsored by WellSpan Health this extraordinary facility will provide a personalized approach to fitness, fun, and learning. With easy access to abundant amenities—including indoor and outdoor pickleball and tennis courts, bocce ball, a horseshoe pit, and more—residents will be free to design their own active adult lifestyle.  

As a popular active adult community in Gettysburg, we are committed to providing resort‑level experiences as our amenities evolve. To ensure that our residents won’t miss out on opportunities for daily exercise while we await the fitness center opening, we’ve allocated interim space at our expansive new Community Hall at Rock Creek Clubhouse.  Serving as a temporary area for workouts, exercise routines, and dance classes until the fitness center is complete, this elegant Community Hall will also be a premier venue for neighborhood galas, anniversary parties, and more for years to come.
