Philadelphia CSA Choices: Part II (& more Local, Sustainable Farmers)

Philadelphia has many CSA options in 2012Damn. Philly has a LOT of choices for CSAs. Which means you can support local farmers AND get fresh produce straight from a farm TO your table. I loved my CSA excursion last year and can’t wait to subscribe to one this year!
We gave you a few CSA choices in Philadelphia last week.  Here’s a few more for you to mull over:
  • FirstWatch Farms (Lancaster County) has a CSA with a 22-week share from May – October. Their pickups include Wednesdays in Wayne PA, and in Lancaster on Fridays and Saturdays. The application is right on the Farm To City website.
  • Lancaster Farm Fresh has a 25 week CSA with weekly newsletters, recipe suggestions, cooking demos and more. They also have a TON of pickup sites on Mondays, Wednesdays & Thursdays across Philly & the ‘burbs.  (Check out the Farm to City application link for the full list.)
  • Red Earth Farm is a Schuylkill County PA dedicated to chemical-free produce. This CSA’s website allows you to choose your produce weekly, and has a variety of pickups on Tuesdays, Thursdays, Fridays & Saturdays
  • Sankanac CSA (Camphill Village Kimberton Hills, Kimberton PA) has available shares for the upcoming season. Their 15-acre garden in Chester County is organically and biodynamically grown and is part of an intentional life-sharing community that includes adults with developmental disabilities. Email SankanacCSA@gmail.com for more info.
  • Down to Earth Harvest offers a 26 week CSA from May – Thanksgiving with pickups in Bala Cynwd on Thursday, at the Farm in Kennett Square on Tuesdays and Rittenhouse Square on Saturday.
