Farm-to-Table is a wildly popular trend, found in fine dining rooms around the country. Owner, founding innkeeper and farmer Al Granger at Glasbern Inn in Pennsylvania’s Lehigh Valley (about an hour from Philadelphia) was doing farm to table long before there was a buzzword for it. Since 1985, the inn has grown from a six-room bed and breakfast to a luxurious country inn with 34 rooms in 7 historic buildings. How often can you enjoy an heirloom tomato at a restaurant that is so fresh it is still warm from the afternoon sun?! The cattle and sheep you see grazing in the pastures on the farm will also be on the menu. Breakfast is also a special treat with super fresh eggs and homemade pork sausage from Glasbern’s pigs. You can dine in either their soaring elegant 1800′s bank barn or the cozy tavern. The cuisine ranges from elegant composed plates in the fine dining room to a fabulous and hefty Glasbern grass-fed burger in the tavern.
The rooms are also pretty amazing…but that merits its own post!
In the last year Glasbern launched a new website by White Stone Marketing – check it out. They did a great job telling the story of this complex property.
