This winter, Einstein Medical Center Philadelphia, Elkins Park, and Montgomery will be supporting local family farms with Lancaster Farm Fresh Co-op! Their farmers take deep pride in the quality of produce they grow, and each crop's health and vitality is taken into consideration as they plan and refine their cultivation techniques season after season, year after year. They strive to provide the best value of organic produce available in every produce share. They proudly source their produce from their member farmers in Lancaster, PA, as well as occasionally from local partners.
Winter Organic Produce Share - Cold temperatures, snow, and hard frosts don't stop these farmers from bringing you the best varieties of local & regional, organic, winter-hardy vegetables. Your weekly share includes a mix of some of the following items: arugula, beets, cabbage, carrots, celeriac, chard, collards, Jerusalem artichokes, kale, mixed lettuce, mushrooms, onions, parsnips, potatoes, pumpkins, radicchio, radishes, rutabagas, spinach, sweet potatoes, turnips, and winter squash.
Egg Share - You can select either weekly or bi-weekly (every other week). All of their eggs are gathered from chickens who are fully pastured and fed only Certified Organic, antibiotic-free, non-GMO, and hormone-free supplemental feed. Their chickens are never debeaked! Rather, they live walking around looking for bugs to eat.
The Chicken Share - Delivered weekly, the chicken share is sure to please with a mix of organic and pastured chicken. All LFFC chickens are hormone-free, antibiotic-free, GMO-free, and grass and non-GMO grain fed. You can expect 1-3 weekly items in this share, averaging 3 pounds total, and you'll see cuts such as breasts, legs, thighs, wings, and even whole birds.
The Meat Share - Each week, you can expect butcher block favorites like roasts, ground meat, pork & bison, steaks, bacon, sausage, chops and more! When it comes to meat, LFFC takes the same care in raising their cows and pigs as they do for their vegetables. The beef comes from cows that have been grass-fed and grass finished, while their pork comes from heritage breed hogs. Although you will see a higher percentage of beef and pork products, there will also be lamb, bison, turkey and chicken included as well. As always, their animals are fully-pastured with absolutely no added hormones, antibiotics, or GMOs! Approximately 3 pounds, 2-4 frozen items a week.
Bi-weekly Cheese Share - Three varieties of cheese delivered on a bi-weekly basis. They source the cheese for this share from local, artisanal cow, goat, and sheep farmers. From aged sharp cheddars to creamy, savory chevres - you will be delighted with their cheese, which adds the perfect touch to any family meal, dinner party, or hors d'oeuvre platter.
Milk Share - You will receive one half gallon of milk every week. We offer whole and 2% reduced fat milk options. Trickling Springs Creamery sources our milk from grass-fed, pastured cows, and their milk is certified organic.
Omnivore It! Share - Includes a prime cut of butcher-block favorite meat, artisan cheese ranging from classic farmhouse cheddar to creamy chevre, and a local pantry favorite made with love!
Veganize It! Share - Includes an organic brick of tofu, artisan handmade bread, and a local pantry favorite made with love!
Bread Share - Dark, crusty, nutty, grainy, and sweet - bring the delight of freshly baked artisan bread to your home with their ever-popular bread share from alternating suppliers from Green Lion Bakery and Talking Breads. Baked daily and delivered weekly, these breads are made with the finest organic & vegan ingredients. Enjoy a slice with olive oil and rosemary or use it to accompany your other CSA ingredients to make delicious sandwiches. One loaf will be delivered every week!
Gluten Free Bread Share - LFFC is pleased to be offering a GLUTEN-FREE bread share. They are happy to offer this option through Lancaster's own Amaranth Bakery. Not only are all of these breads GLUTEN-FREE, they are also super tasty! Varieties may include caraway seed, cinnamon raisin, pizza crusts, flatbread, sandwich rolls, and more! All products are made in 100% dedicated gluten free facility. Amaranth does, however, regularly use EGGS, TREE NUTS, DAIRY, FLAX, & SOY PRODUCTS on shared equipment. They cannot guarantee against cross-contamination with these particular allergens.
Yogurt Share - You will receive one quart (32 oz.) of either Original Plain or Low Fat Plain yogurt each week. Plain Seven Stars yogurt has a traditional European taste and texture. The thick cultured cream layer that forms at the top of each container is a beautiful reminder of the hand-crafted care that goes into the production of this yogurt.
