Our Local Lancaster Cupcake Ingredients

Mrs. Weaver's Pure Wildflower Honey
MIddletown, PA

"Packed on the farm by Weaver Family Farm, Middletown, PA"
 
Wilbur Chocolate                                                  Lititz, PA 

"The story of Wilbur is, in many ways, the story of American enterprise. Born at the height of the Industrial Revolution as a general confectionery in 1865, Wilbur’s founders chose to narrow their focus in 1884, to specialize in the production – and perfection – of chocolate alone. Although the Wilbur Bud maintains a passionate following through mail order and direct sales in our company store, the singular focus of our business is the delivery of superior ingredients to our customers in the food industry. Our Lititz facility currently produces over 240 million pounds of chocolate and cocoa products, each one formulated and delivered to meet the exact specifications of confectioners, dairies, and bakers across North America."

Nature's Yoke
New Holland, PA

"Nature's Yoke is the trade name owned by Westfield Egg Farms, a small family-run operation in Lancaster County, PA. Here at "Natures Yoke" our goal is to bring to you our own local family farm raised quality products. Our eggs are produced on small local farms in the heart of Lancaster County and surrounding areas. These small scale farms have the ability to produce quality specialty eggs by utilizing careful farm management and hen care. We use no drugs or antibiotics to maintain hen health. Our chickens are fed a vegetarian diet with no animal fats or animal by-products in the feed and have the freedom to roam around and scratch about at will."

Esbenshade Farms
Mount Joy, PA

Esbenshade Farms was started in 1963 on a farm just outside Manheim, PA by H. Glenn Esbenshade and his wife Rachael. For the first 17 years the eggs produced on the farm were sold to other processors. In 1980 the company’s first grading machine was installed on a farm purchased by Mr. Esbenshade near Mount Joy, PA. This made it possible to begin marketing their eggs themselves. A feed mill was built in 1985 on the Mount Joy site. Feed formulating and manufacturing for the farms’ birds allowed for greater control over nutrition and costs. The company continued to expand, and today includes three fully automated egg production and grading facilities.

John F. Martin & Son
Lancaster  County, PA

John F. Martin & Sons, Inc.’s sweet cream butter is among the highest quality Amish dairy products available today. In John F. Martin & Sons’ own words their Amish dairy are from "Country People Making Country Goodness."

Lancaster Central Market

"The country's oldest farmers' market, in the heart of Amish country occupies a beautiful 120 year old red brick building chock-full of local character. Regional food specialties include Pennsylvania Dutch preserves, as well as a large variety of fresh dairy and local produce."


Meet Emily

Lancaster Cupcake was founded by Emily Barcklow Mitchell. Emily traded a career in nursing to pursue something a little sweeter, her passion for baking. As a lifelong baker, inspired by many chocolate-batter-covered spatulas in her mother's kitchen, Emily opened Lancaster Cupcake in August 2011 as PA’s first and only subscription based cupcakery and Central PA's first Cupcake Truck!
