Esbenshade near Mount Joy, PA. This made it possible to begin marketing

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

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!
