Local meats for Easter

I know Passover is coming soon, but not being Jewish, I'm not sure what is traditional to eat for Passover. But I do know what is traditional for Easter - ham or lamb. I've been searching for sources of local ham or lamb, but I haven't come up with much. If anyone knows of a local source in the region, please leave it in the comments.

The Fair Food Farmstand at the Reading Terminal Market in Philadelphia has a way to order ham or lamb from some Lancaster region farms. You would need to order in the next couple of days.

Orders should be sent to by the deadlines stated below.

Heads UP: the sooner you order, the better your chances of securing these wonderful products. Competition for local, grass-fed lamb is fierce this time of year!

Meadow Run Grass-Finished Lamb
For delivery on Tuesday 4/7/09, DUE by 3 pm Friday 4/3/09
RACK OF LAMB $18.00/LB (tentative, respond asap if you want this cut)

Green Meadow Double Smoked Ham
For delivery on Thurday 4/8/09, DUE by 8 am Monday 4/6/09
Homecured, available in whole or half size.
Bone-In Ham (12-15LBs) $6.75/LB
Boneless Ham (10 LBs) $8.00/LB

I'd also think that any of the local Amish markets like the one in Mullica Hill would have ham or lamb, too.

I hope by this time next year, I've familiarized myself enough with the local options that I'll be able to bring you a much better list.
