**The Rural Routes Barn Tour is a tour of approximately 25 barns in South and East Hanover Townships including the Barn at Farmstead. Tickets are sold and participants can start their self-guided tour anywhere.
Farmstead Market is built on a 5 acre farmette settled right in the middle of beautiful central Pennsylvania farmland. We have restored the original barn, which makes the perfect backdrop to our indoor, year-round market. Although the area has a comforting, quaint, country feel, we are easily accessed by the surrounding areas of central PA. In the past few years, we have become a regular stop for folks who visit Hershey in the summer.
Owners Lloyd and Joel Umberger started Farmstead Market in August 2007 with a passion for providing top quality, local produce and items to the community. “We grew up on a dairy farm. We had a garden and we ate what we grew. We raised cattle, chicken. We ate fresh, healthy, delicious food! Like many other busy families, life got hectic and I didn’t have time to raise and grow my own food. So we wanted to find a way to make good, local products available to everyone in our area, year-round. We have certainly met and exceeded our goals. We are happy that Farmstead has also grown into a meeting place in the community.”
