The Gates Brothers started Lancaster Foods in 1986 with an emphasis on locally grown produce. That has been a hallmark of the company ever since. Lancaster Foods continues to maintain a strong relationship with hundreds of growers in the mid-Atlantic region to bring you the freshest produce year round. In many cases, produce can be shipped to you straight from the farm, picked at the peak of ripeness. Whether conventional or organic, let Lancaster Foods source the finest locally grown produce for your farm-to-table merchandising.
