“In planning the menu for
The Owl’s Nest, we wanted to utilize locally sourced and sustainably produced
ingredients to help elevate the menu and set it apart,” explained Bill Kehler,
General Manager of Dining Services at Moravian Manor. “A majority of our menu
proteins will be sourced from Indian Ridge Provisions, based in Telford, out in
Bucks/Montgomery County, PA. We’ll also be featuring ice cream from Fox Meadows
Creamery and soft pretzel products from Dutch County Pretzels, both located in
our neighboring town of Ephrata. And our coffee is sourced right from Whiff
Roasters, based right here in Lititz.”
“The saying ‘Know Your
Farmer, Know Your Food’ really comes to life at The Owl’s Nest,” stated Nicole
Director of Sales and Marketing of Moravian Manor and Warwick Woodlands. “We know
people have shifted their focus to food sourcing information, and want to know
where the food came from that’s on their plate. That’s possible at The Owl’s
Nest, all while supporting the local farming and sustainable seafood economy.”

produced food partners include:
