Forks Farm Market and Buying Club

Forks Farm is a once-a-month buying club delivering to Chester and Delaware Counties, with no minimum order and no commitment to buy each month. They offer fresh foods from local family farms, including pasture-raised meats, eggs, raw dairy, produce, breads, baked goods, nuts, honey and more.

They are located in Columbia County, but they deliver buying club orders to Rushton Farm (at the corner of Delchester and Goshen Road) on the Willistown Conservation Trust land, just west of Newtown Square.  There are also plans in the works to have a Media-based parking lot for use during the winter, with a location yet to be determined.

How the Buying Cub Works

Each month, club members will receive an order form directly from Forks Farm, about 4-5 days before the delivery. The farmer at Forks Farm will highlight the items available in yellow. Since meat is seasonal, the items not highlighted are offered at other times of the year. You can place customs orders for 1/8, 1/4, 1/2 and a whole animal. The preparation of the order takes a month from the time of ordering. There is no minimum order for individuals, only for the club as a whole, and you do not have to order every month. The online order form will provide an overview of the prices, and how the different types of meat can be ordered.

For more information, or to get on the club list, email Marie.
