Local meats for Easter
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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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!

BONELESS LEG $16.00/LB
BONE-IN LEG $11.00/LBBONELESS SHOULDER $9.50/LB
RACK OF LAMB $18.00/LB (tentative, respond asap if you want this cut)
Green Meadow Double Smoked Ham

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.
