Looking for raw goat milk in Allentown or Harrisburg:

This might be a weird question, but I live in Kentucky where the raw milk laws are the strictest. A family member is driving down from NYC and offered to stop and pick up some milk for me so I can try my hand at cheesemaking. As retail raw milk sales are legal in Pennsylvania, and as he will be passing through both cities, can anyone help me out? I'm hoping for just a regular grocery type place that's not-too-far off the interstate. Thanks!
I believe there is a stand at Lancaster Central Market that sells raw goat milk. That would not be a convenient stop, but if traveling on a market day (Tue, Fri, Sat) it is a worthwhile place to visit.
A search led me to wildfoods.com and I found 2 possible sources. If your friends take I-80 W to I-81, they will be close to Cranberry Creek Farm in Cresco (Stroudsburg area).
Hendricks Farm and Dairy is a little more out of the way, South of Allentown almost half way to Philly.
More research --
The stand I was thinking of at Central Market in Lancaster is run by Oasis. They apparently have a retail store open M-F 9-5 and Sat 9-12 in Ronks, PA
But it is also not exactly convenient to I-78.
Maybe you need to schedule a trip to Amish country! ;)
