Crawford Organic Farm

200wAs it’s now Fall, it means we will be saying goodbye to warm weather crops and hello to the return of cool weather ones.

The farm has been growing organic produce since 1998. Since 2002 they have partnered with Paradise Organics, and between the two farms, offer a full line of fresh organic vegetables to wholesale markets. In 2008 and 2009, they attended a farmer’s market in Philadelphia. They merged with Wimer’s Organics CSA in 2016.

Among their crops this week are: Green Beans, Beets, Baby Bok Choy, Cabbage, Carrots, Celery Root, Chard, Cilantro, Collards, Dandelion, Eggplant, Herbs, Kale, Leeks, Lettuce, Mustard Greens, Onions (White, Red or Sweet Yellow), Parsley, Sweet Bell Peppers (Green or Red), Jalapeno Peppers, Potatoes, Radishes (black or watermelon), Rhubarb, Salad Mix, Sweet Potatoes, Shallots, Tomatoes (Cherry, Heirloom or reg. Red), Winter Squash (some or all of: Acorn, Butternut, Carnival, Delicata, Kabocha Type, Pie Pumpkin [for cooking], Spaghetti ), and Turnips. In addition, they have Heirloom Dried Beans and Popcorn.

Fresh Apple Cider is here!!!! Shop early ‘cause it sells out quickly.

In addition to the Organic Concord Grapes they grow in East Earl (Lancaster County), they sell other Lancaster County farms’ fresh fruit and berries — some fruit is Organic, some are low spray — Apples (Courtland, Gala, Honeycrisp, Macintosh. . .), Bartlett Pears, Nectarines, and Peaches (yellow; last for the year).

They also have available GMO-Free raised on grass pasture Brown Eggs, organic raw Cheese (eight varieties), Yogurt (two plain and two flavors), Organic Butter (salted or unsalted), and organic grass-fed Raw Milk as well as Local Raw Honey and PA Maple Syrup.

Their organic flowers (limited time) include sunflowers, mixed bouquets and vases to put them in.

Now accepting credit cards, asking $20 minimum purchase. Cash preferred. Also accepting FMNP checks from eligible Seniors and Women, Infants & Children (WIC) to purchase fresh fruits and vegetables.
