About Us / The Lackawaxen Farm Co. History: The Lackawaxen Farm Company connects people, businesses, and institutions to family farms in Northeastern Pennsylvania and the Delaware Highlands/Catskills Region. Here at the LFC, we have seen firsthand that by sharing a common infrastructure, we can create countless opportunities for synergy to happen. A food hub can facilitate this synergy.
We are an interface where producers and consumers come together to support one another. Producers share information, artisans process locally-produced foods, and thriving networks are formed where consumers can now reliably find locally produced foods and goods. Thanks to these efforts, our local food system has become incredibly dynamic and efficient. We believe this phenomenon is at the heart of what it is to be a sustainable food hub, looking towards the future and providing resources for farmers paired with good food for the community.
Our business is strong because it was started by farmers, individuals who have experienced firsthand the unique needs of producers in our region. The birth of the LFC was a direct response to our own needs as producers. By creating a highly effective collaborative framework that connects farmers and consumers, we are able to grow the volume and quality of sustainable and healthy food that is produced in our region. Through the efforts of the LFC, it is possible to increase the market and demand for food that nourishes our people as well as the land.
In 2011, the LFC started as a collaboration between several farms in Wayne County, PA. Local farmers were facing market challenges. They realized they could not individually overcome these challenges, and decided to band together to share resources. What started out as a group of local producers sitting around a table talking over their problems has quickly become a thriving business that successfully markets their products to restaurants, stores, institutions, and individual consumers in the area through our online store.
