From Pumpkin Hill to the Powerhouse Eatery


From Pumpkin Hill to the Powerhouse Eatery

For the past decade, we have worked closely with Pumpkin Hill Produce, a local farm headed by Harry Roinick in Wapwallopen, PA.

Mr. Roinick has provided superior produce to the Ovalon, Connor's Grillroom, and the Powerhouse Eatery throughout the years and works closely with our chefs to deliver seasonal and locally inspired dishes. Every week throughout the summer we personally send our truck to Pumpkin Hill Produce and purchase seasonally available ingredients to integrate into our classic dishes and create seasonally appropriate specials. 

We are committed to providing customers with the highest-quality food and ingredients. 

Although, we believe our commitment extends further than our customers - we seek to ensure individuals, businesses, and communities that we operate with and within are always dealt with the highest standard of integrity and trust. Our commitment to the local agriculture community is grounded in our effort to source the highest-quality ingredients. We partner with local farmers that strive to deliver such products and bolster our local agricultural economies.
