Our Food Artisans

cocky confections

Cocky Gourmet Confections - While we offer many delicious and non-traditional flavors of nut and seed brittle, we also offer most of these flavors "with Attitude". With attitude means with double the flavor or with some additional ingredient that takes the existing flavor, and in the words of Nigel Tufnel, takes it to 11.

exton bee

Exton Bee Company - Local honey, both light and dark. Stock up for winter's warming cups of tea. Delicious in oatmeal too.

kastania p

Kastania - Kastania Olive Oil comes to Downingtown this Saturday for our Thanksgiving / November visit.
