Heritage Creek is a small-scale vegetable farm that provides chemical-free food for families through our CSA and for community partners in the Columbia and Lancaster area. Rooted in the simplicity of nature, HCFC  offers a variety of farm-based programs. Care-taking of the environment, and learning about food origin and sustainable agriculture are fundamental elements at Heritage Creek.
