Lancaster Farm Fresh Cooperative

Lancaster Farm Fresh Cooperative is a Buying Club and CSA that delivers to locations all over the Philadelphia area.  I feel like every time I turn around, someone is recommending Lancaster Farm Fresh.  With 68 Amish and Mennonite farms in Lancaster County, they have quite an extensive inventory.

They operate both a CSA and a Buying Club.  (See Learn the Lingo for the difference.  Basically you buy into the CSA at the beginning of the season for produce, and you place individual orders with the buying club for meat, eggs and dairy.)  Visit their site for pick-up locations and ordering details.

From the site:

  1. Sorry, JL. I totally would have done the write-up on them but I have never actually been there, and I know you wanted people to have visited any place they submitted to you. I mean, I’ve done a ton of emailing with the people that organize it and have talked on the phone, but haven’t ever set foot there – it’s pretty far for us.

    I’m hoping they have this season kick-off picnic that they did last year. For whatever reason we missed in then, but if they do hold it again I’m going to def try and get us out there to meet the farmers face to face and stuff…and then I suppose we’ll go to Dutch Wonderland:)

    No worries! :-)

    (Although using them certainly counts as having a personal testimonial to give. :-) :-) )
