Vale Wood Farms: Local Dairy Farm Delivers

One of our new local partners at Harrison’s Wine Grill & Catering is Vale Wood Farms. Located in the town of Loretto, PA, Vale Wood Farms is named for the farm’s location in “the valley by the woods.” This five generation family farm was first established in 1933 and began milk deliveries to local families and to the former Penn Cress Ice Cream Company in the local town of Cresson, PA.

Community at the Farmers Markets

Area farmers markets provide an opportunity for locals to directly support farmers and local food purveyors. Here at Harrison’s, many of those who sell at the local markets are the friends we welcome at our back door each week with delicious seasonal ingredients that we use throughout the year.

For the consumer, a farmers market is a chance to meet the person who grows the food you eat. Rather than the old adage, “matching a name with a face,” we think of it as “matching a food with a farmer!”
