Smucker Farms of Lancaster Co. was founded to make a direct connection between the producers of food and products in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, and consumers in Washington, DC. We focus on small farmers and producers, stocking our shelves with the best that Southeast PA has to offer. Many of the small farmers in Lancaster, primarily Amish and Mennonite, have distanced themselves from the corporate food chain and are instead focusing on high quality artisan food and products.

The result is an explosion in the availability of grass fed beef, free range poultry and eggs, heirloom pork, European style cheeses, butters, and yogurts, and of course an abundance of organic leafy greens, root vegetables and fruit. Smucker Farms will also be carrying a wide variety of unique baked goods, canned products, dry goods, handmade soaps and beauty products. To best serve the busy urban dweller, we have prepared modern American take away meals made in Lancaster, PA for your home and office. For those who want a weekly variety of fresh produce and fruit, Smucker Farms is the pick-up point for a CSA program organized by a cooperative of Amish and Mennonite farmers in Lancaster Co. Examples of handmade furniture are scattered throughout the store to help you choose an item for pick up or delivery, and handmade toys can be put to the test in our Kid’s Corner.

My family first came to Lancaster Co. in the late 1700s and most of my ancestors found the fertile soils perfectly suited for their agrarian lifestyle. Though I have decided to live in Washington, D.C., Lancaster Co. is still where I find the best ingredients for any recipe. Luckily for all of us, this local source just keeps getting better and better.
