Homefields Care Farm Shares Available

Homefields Care Farm, Lancaster County's longest-running community supported agriculture (CSA) program, has shares available. Shareholders can meet their farmers, see how their food grows and go into the fields to pick herbs, fruits and vegetables at their taste and nutritional peak.  While most of the weekly share is harvested and prepared, the farm maintains ample pick-your-own fields bursting with herbs, flowers, peppers, tomatoes, blueberries, strawberries and more. 

 

Homefields employs natural methods from seed to harvest and to care for the soil. Seeds are non-genetically modified (non-GMO), and most are organic. The farm is chemical free, and safe methods are used to control weeds and pests.   

 

Homefields is being reintroduced to the community as Homefields Care Farm, the first care farm in Lancaster County.An award-winning, non-profit organization dedicated to creating new life options for people who have disabilities, Homefields’ dual missions intend to benefit the whole person. Vocational and volunteer opportunities for hundreds of people who have a disability or other barriers to traditional employment have been created through Homefields.  

 

 

Location: 150 Letort Rd., Millersville. For more information about the farm, call 717-871-3110 or email Farmer@Homefields.org. For more information about Homefields, call 717-872-2012, email Info@Homefields.org or visit Homefields.org.
