Grass-fed Beef and Free-range Eggs in Lancaster

Does anyone know a source for grass-fed beef and free-range eggs in Lancaster? I'm looking for eggs from chickens who actually spend time outside, not just those who have "access" to the outdoors. I also don't especially want to buy an entire cow. I'd like to just buy basic cuts.

    There is a great outdoor farm market every Saturday morning, in the town of Lititz. I think it lasts until about 12:00pm. I remember seeing at least 1 or 2 stands selling grass fed Beef, and free-range eggs. Also cheese made from the milk of grass fed cows.

      There is a place that sells free range eggs and some veggies in season located between Lititz and Manheim. If you come north on 72, turn right at the Manheim square, and go about 4 or 5 miles. The road is called Doe Run Road at this point.The farm is on your left, and has a hand made sign , and is claser to the lititz end of the road. I'm sorry that i don't have better directions. It's a nice drive on a summer day. Also on this stretch of the road is a place called "Foods from afar" also on the left side of the road that advertises natural foods and a co-op. They may have connections for what you are looking for. Along this road are many stands and people selling stuff from their garden. I'm sure you'll find some goodies. If these connections don't work, I would go to Central Market and look around.

        I'm not that familiar with Lancaster, but there is a great site - eatwild.com which lists farms throughout the area that sell free-range beef, pork, lamb. I get my eggs and chickens from Hendricks in Telford....not sure how far that would be for you.

        Not Lancaster, but about 45 miles south on 83 is Springfield Farms in Sparks, MD.

I got some info at Central Market today on a farm in Quarryville that does grass fed beef, pasturized broilers, pasturized eggs, pasturized lamb, pork, pasturized turkeys ready to lay pullets and firewood. They have a large stand at Central Market, and everything looked real, real nice. Their name and contact info: Country Meadows Farm 927 N. Little Britain Rd, Quarryville PA 17566 717-786-7761

            Check out Manheimdell Farms just north of Lancaster. Their website is beefgrassfed.com. We buy a quarter beef at a time and get a great variety of cuts.
