With more than 5,100 farms throughout the county, Lancaster leads the commonwealth, representing about 10 percent of all PA farms, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture 2017 Census of Agriculture (and the most recent statistics available). This is the first installment of an ongoing series with a focus on small independent farms and creative use of farmland. We hope it serves as a reminder that the food grown and raised in Lancaster County is both diverse and extraordinary and that the people tending the land have stories worth telling. Join us in saluting our neighbors.
