Local ingredients fresh off the farm.

There is very little time between the farm and your table for the ingredients we choose. Lancaster County is known for its history of farmers and food artisans. Why would we look anywhere else for the food we want to serve you?

All of our meats are raised locally and confinement-free on fresh, green grass pastures. No hormones, antibiotics, steroids or forced-fertilization occurs. Our produce is local organic or chemical free. We use local grass fed cream, butter and eggs. Come enjoy the fresh local flavors of John J. Jeffries.
