I had the pleasure of attending the Farm to Table conference a few weeks ago where several of the area's farms and natural food companies were represented, showing off their goods.

Buy Fresh Buy Local is a lovely website devoted to being a central resource for over a thousand places to find local food in Pennsylvania.
