Founded in 2004, 14 Acre Farm began as a meadow & a vision. From the beginning, we’ve been serious about growing, then baking, then cooking with the best local ingredients we can get our hands on, growing them ourselves whenever possible.
In an average growing season, we grow about 200+ varieties of fresh, chemical-free produce on our farm in Summit Hill, PA. We follow all organic standards and believe that the best food comes from good quality soil and hard work, not synthetic fertilizers or pesticides.
Our breads & baked goods are made with the most natural ingredients we can find: Organic flour, organic evaporated cane juice, organic free-range eggs.
Our top quality farm-to-table catering service cooks simply the best sustainable local food around. We use our own produce whenever possible, and have a great working relationship with several other farmers in the area. Nearly all of our meats come from the following local farms:
- Spring Mountain Farms in Lehighton, PA. They are organic, free-range, pastured, heirloom, sustainable…all those feel-good terms.
- Koch’s Turkey in Tamaqua, PA. Koch’s specializes in organic and hormone-free turkey.
- Wild for Salmon in Bloomsburg, PA. Owners Steve & Jenn spend June & July in Bristol Bay, Alaska, catching & freezing all the fish they sell. It doesn’t get closer to fresh off the boat than this!
Our newest venture, 14 Acre Farm Gourmet Eatery in Lehighton, PA, combines all of our talents and sources into one easy-to-access location. We serve hot breakfast & lunch, eat-in or take-out. We sell hot and cold prepared deli items, all of our fresh breads, and a wide variety of delicious sweets, from cookies to meringues to chocolate sour cream cake with peanut butter cream cheese icing and ganache (yes. it is as amazing as it sounds.)
In 2014, we’re celebrating 10 years of growth here in Carbon County. We’re proud of our place here in the community, and deeply appreciate the enthusiastic and steadfast commitment of our customers, who truly put their money where their mouth is. We look forward to many more years of abundance!
