As our Unpaid Field Hand pointed out yesterday, the local food scene here in Central Pennsylvania is growing as rapidly as a tomato plant in June. One of the pioneers and advocates of local food is Harrison’s Wine Grill and Catering, located within the State College Hilton Garden Inn. They do local food and they do it quite well, as evidenced by multiple awards for both their restaurant and their catering.

Dawg Gone Bees

Jacki Mack and her husband, Hal, started their business, Dawg Gone Bees, after Hal’s grandfather passed away two years ago. They adopted his passion for honey making and moved equipment from his home into theirs.

Jacki always wanted to launch a family-owned business, and that’s just what they did. The Macks even included their four-legged friends in their venture. Each product is named for one of their dogs: Penny, Nebula, FlipFlop, MJ, and Lucky. And they donate a portion of their profits to the SPCA!

Fasta & Ravioli Company in State College

Almost a year ago, Bob Ricketts brought a new business to State College: a fresh ravioli and pasta shop. Today the Penn State alum and owner of Fasta & Ravioli Company caters to a surprisingly large niche market of students and locals. Ricketts offers customers homemade pasta and ravioli and a selection of sauces like tomato, vodka, and pesto. Products are available at the South Fraser Street storefront and at farmers markets and restaurants, as well. “Fast and Fresh” is the mantra here, a motto that Bob lives by. He was eager to share his story with me.
