Local Businesses Get Fresh!

Lukan’s Farm Resort

The resort and restaurant in Hawley has proudly served fresh foods since it was established in 1951. For generations, Lukan’s has offered the freshest produce items that come from the vine to the table in minutes. Items such as tomatoes, sweet corn, beans, zucchini, squash, turnips, beets, parsley, shallots, leeks, apples, honey and herbs are grown on the property. Additionally, over a dozen bee hives are located on the farm, which greatly improves the garden’s health. For many years, Lukan’s customers have appreciated the freshness of these true farm-to-table products.

James Manning House Bed & Breakfast

For over 12 years, the James Manning House in Bethany has offered its patrons quality, homegrown produce such as blueberries, raspberries, apples and peaches. Herbs and produce items come from their own garden and fruit trees. A variety of homemade jams are for sale during the summer/fall seasons. Eggs are served locally from Morning Sun Farm, as well as honey and maple syrup from Wells Apiary. Meats are sourced from a butcher in Lebanon, PA. Late summer and early fall products include famous “veggie cakes,” summer squash and zucchini. Innkeepers Warren and Janet Heinly believe serving local foods offers patrons a healthier and fresher meal.

Terra Preta

Established in October 2014, Terra Preta became a local haven for farm-to-table meals in Scranton. This trendy restaurant changes its menu with the seasons. Ingredients served are grown “hyper-locally,” within a 100 mile span. The eatery uses organic chicken, pork and steak meats, organic greens, dairy products, honey and produce items from ten local farms. Chef Donna Vannan believes there’s a relationship between living well and eating well, and that supporting local farms also supports the community. This summer’s menu features apples, corn, tomatoes, beets, greens, summer fruits and summer squash and zucchinis.

The French Manor

Much of the French Manor’s produce comes from a local farm only a few miles away. All of the herbs and micro-greens are grown onsite in South Sterling. Executive Chef Adam LaFave selects local crops to feature in his seasonal menus in the AAA four-diamond rated restaurant. In late summer, many fruits and vegetables are harvested, as well as root vegetables, pumpkin and squash in the fall. Serving local foods supports the local economy and local farmers offer organically grown produce, ultimately providing fresh and trustworthy products. For ten years, the French Manor has offered the best to its customers.

The Lodge at Woodloch

TREE Restaurant located within the Hawley, PA spa utilizes local and organic foods whenever possible. In addition to its own Blackmore Farm-to-Table Garden where fresh vegetables, greens and herbs are harvested daily, local farm partners contribute to the healthful service. A few favorite local farms include The Lackawaxen Farm Company, Willow Wisp Farm, The AntHill Farm, Calkins Creamery and Hardler Farm. Late summer and early fall is the prime season for farm-fresh vegetables like heirloom tomatoes, carrots, peppers, mushrooms and squash. Woodloch is dedicated to serving farm-fresh foods for the benefits offered to the environment, individual health and the flavor created in each recipe.

Selling fresh foods furthers the store’s philosophy of sustainability, plus it’s cost effective, best for the local economy and the minimizes the impact on the environment. During summer and fall, produce is sourced fromOverlook Farms, Lady Moon Farm, Fairlane Farm and Rowlands farms.

Caravia Fresh Foods

Joe Cognetti founded the retail store in Clarks Summit in the spirit of the old country with quality products, familiar friendly service and authentic food. Bell and Evans, a meat company that emphasizes ethically, humanely raised meats, without the use of antibiotics or growth hormones, is a major provider for Caravia’s deli. In the summer and fall, produce comes primarily from Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Delaware and northern Virginia. Bell and Jalapeno peppers, summer squash, cucumbers, tomatoes, and peaches are available through the end of the summer, then hard squash and eastern apples arrive in early fall. Caravia believes it is important to serve locally sourced food to both support the local business community, and to have as little environmental impact as possible.

The Settlers Inn

The restaurant in Hawley has been known for farm-to-table cuisine since its inception. Owners Grant and Jeanne Genzlinger always felt strongly about serving locally sourced food and Chef de Cuisine Kate Woehrle shares that passion. “To source ingredients locally means we ensure a great product,” says Woehrle. “We don’t need to worry about our produce shipping from South America and coming in sub par. Plus, we stimulate the local economy by purchasing from local farmers.” Produce is sourced from places such as Lato Sud Farm in Beach Lake, Nonnemacher Farms in Honesdale and Mountain Dell Farms in Narrowsburg, NY. To savor the freshest flavors of the summer and early fall, Woehrle recommends the crudité platter as well as the Lamb Two Ways, which offers a quinoa and summer beat sauté. “I like to add whatever vegetable we have available, in addition to the beans. Currently I chop up baby carrots, baby fennel, gailon and zucchini for it.” The chef also favors the “Extend Your Life Salad” on the menu, which features antioxidant rich local blueberries, fresh snow peas, local greens, grilled zucchini and locally sourced grilled chicken.  –Ann Moschorak
