Our mission is to cultivate community health through agriculture, access and affordability.
Why We Farm
York Fresh Food Farms’ core focus is growing healthy food. We are committed to improving access to affordable, healthy, fresh food for everyone in our community, especially for families living in poverty and in food desert neighborhoods.
Hunger hurts everyone, but diet-related illnesses and food insecurity—lack of access to sufficient, quality food—disproportionately impact people in underserved communities. York Fresh Food Farms is growing food right here in the City of York, making fresh, farm-grown produce available– at affordable prices – so that all members of our community can eat a healthy diet.
We are committed to community: growing, harvesting, and sharing our produce connects everyone --customer, volunteer, employee, contributor, or community member – with “where food comes from.”
We care about health, and our farming practices show it. Farming sustainably is the foundation for all that York Fresh Food Farms does to reduce hunger and improve health outcomes. Our commitment to health extends to the soil and air, too. We farm in York, PA, to provide produce to York, PA, residents. Our produce travels nearly zero food miles!
Fresh, Affordable Produce, All Year Long
Vegetables and fruit from York Fresh Food Farms are available 52 weeks a year through our Mobile Produce Market with regularly scheduled stops around York City six days a week (June to November), our Winter Mobile Produce Markets (November to June) and through FarmShares. Customers can visit one of our mobile markets to select fresh vegetables and fruit, or order FramShares online, a pre-selected box of fresh, farm-grown, affordable produce, delivered free within the City of York. Customers living outside of York City can arrange to pick up their boxes on Friday or Saturday at 150 Willis Road, York, PA. Order Online or view our FarmShares Program.
York Fresh Food Farms accepts SNAP/EBT, Food Buck coupons, WellSpan Market Bucks (produce Rx), Farmers Market Nutrition Program checks (June – November only) as well as cash/credit/debit. We encourage customers to use SNAP, food assistance checks and vouchers. If you pay with SNAP, we offer a $2 Food Buck coupon with every $2 spent with your SNAP/EBT card up to $10! With Food Buck Coupons, SNAP customers can save $10 on each subsequent Farm Share order or other purchase after making the first purchase at the full price.
