I am a country girl at heart and I love farm to table dining. I grew up in the farm lands very close to Central Pennsylvania….

Farm To Table Style Restaurants
Elizabeth's Bistro is a Farm to table style restaurant in Lewisburg, PA. Most of the dishes from our Farm to Table items were inspired by the way I grew up with my family's farm to table cooking. Back then Farm to table dining was not considered avant gard, it was just the way my parents cooked because Farm to table dining was a part of our lives. Popularized by Alice Waters, another NJ girl, farm to table cuisine is now all the rage. But for me, it was just normal.
My parents had a huge garden out back. Farm stands everywhere, and always cooking in season which later became know as Farm to table.. So it just seems natural that our menu at Elizabeth’s is and always was farm to table, but with an ethnic twist.
Local Farm To Table Dining in Central PA
Country girl goes to the big city and brings Local Farm To Table Dining with her! I was lucky to work with amazingly skilled and passionate chefs in Philadelphia, who ran farm to table restaurants, such as the White Dog Café, in University City. I remember fondly my summers at the White Dog, farmers would deliver fresh peaches, tomatoes, and zucchini, piled high in bushel baskets, on a daily basis. So, it is at Elizabeth’s; our daily ritual, fresh seasonal ingredients, produce, poultry and trout delivered each morning to our Lewisburg, PA location.
We are incredibly lucky to have awesome locally sourced suppliers that support our farm to table passion from local communities like Harrisburg, Lewisburg, Sunbury and Williamsport. Landis Poultry Farms in Watsontown has been supplying us with hens almost since our inception. Similarly, our first butcher remains our butcher. The guys at Fisher’s Meat Market, Lewisburg, PA, never fail to deliver.
Farm To Fork Dining
Farm to Fork dining is another term used for Farm to table dining with both having similar meanings. Locally sourced and Farm Fresh food is a growing part of our business and more recently, Cora of Springcress trout farm, and Celeste from Celeste Farms, both from Mifflinburg PA, are providing the trout and produce respectively. These two talent ladies bring us the best of the best.
Finally we could not create our farm fresh fruit filled locally sourced crostatas or crisps without the apples, pears and stone fruits from Dries Orchards or Whispering Pines. We are blessed with talented and hardworking locally sourced suppliers near Lewisburg, PA and that’s why we can do farm to table food that we humbly believe exceeds expectations.
