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.
