Are you looking for local, nutrient-rich, synthetic chemical and hormone-free fruits, vegetables and meats for you and your family?
There is no shortage of places to go, in season, in Lancaster County to pick up fresh home grown produce for the evening meal. But, where does one go to buy fresh, home grown synthetic chemical and hormone-free food? Where does one go to find a large selection of locally produced, raw milk, exotic and conventional cheeses, or locally grown, grass fed beef and chicken, and all kinds of interesting local produce?
Reuben Stoltzfus, produce grower and owner of a major farm support company, Elmer Lapp, grass-fed beef and poultry producer, and Leroy Miller, dairy farmer, raw milk producer and cheese manufacturer, have been working for about two years in preparation for forming a grower's cooperative that will help to establish systems to move fresh, local, synthetic chemical and hormone-free food from the farmer to the consumer as quickly as possible. The Community of Oasis at Bird-in-Hand has a retail store located at 60 North Ronks Road in Ronks, PA which opened in mid-February 2012.
