Livengood Family Farm
1648 Morningside Dr., Lancaster, PA

Located at the intersection of Lancaster’s beautiful farming country and the recent suburb expansion, our vegetable farm has been the sole enterprise of our family for 30 years. We are a three generation family business consisting of Earl and Joyce and son Dwain and Audrey and their family. Building sustainable enterprises that encourage creative is our passion. Building blocks include grass, vegetables, grass-eating animals and birds and hungry persons who appreciate wholesome food.

Our animal and vegetable offerings are Beyond Organic. We were certified organic for over 15 years beginning in the early ’90s helping to develop the Certified Organic label in Pennsylvania as charter members of Pennsylvania Certified Organic. Since then our focus on “Green Everyday” animal management has taken us above and beyond organic certification standards. Since most of our customers are private individuals who know us and our farming practices well, a third party inspection process seemed unnecessary. We welcome your visit for personal verification of our Beyond Organic practices!

Our herds and flocks help retired farmers and landowners keep their beautiful landscape in farming. If you live nearby, we expect you to stop by to meet our family and see how living on the edge of farmland loss is possible with your help.

We’ve also experienced raising meat birds on grass and have found the results delightful! We will be doing more broilers and holiday turkeys this season.

Pasture-raised Turkey Orders
Turkeys from Livengood Family Farm in Lancaster, PA, are $4.50 a pound.  Each whole turkey weighs 12-20 pounds (some may be larger, some smaller).

Livengood will select a turkey for you as close to your preferred weight as possible.  The earlier you order, the better your chance of getting the size you request.

You get a freshly-dressed, fully-chilled, never-frozen whole turkey ready to be cooked, neck and giblets (heart, liver, gizzard) included.  For an additional $5, you can request to have the turkey cut into pieces:  breast, leg/thigh, wings, and back/neck; however, you must make this request at the time of ordering.

There is a $20 deposit for a whole turkey and a $25 deposit for a cut-up turkey.

You must select the appropriate pick-up location:  Mon. Nov 21 Venice Island Performing Arts Center in Manayunk, 4:30 pm to 7:30 pm
