Locally Grown, Farm Fresh Food.


Our country is facing a major food crisis.   Food quality has steadily been declining since World War II. We're losing farms and farmers at increasing rates and, for all intents and purposes, there is no next generation of farmers. We at the Palmyra Real Food Emporium want to control the quality and availability of our food.   The Emporium is our answer to regaining control of our food system.

Join us in promoting a return to fresh food consumption and a vibrant local economy.

The General Store

The Palmyra Real Food Emporium is a unique place that provides the feel of the general store of yore, offering dried sundries, fresh fruits and vegetables, and work from local craftsmen.  Walk in and feel refreshed by a slower pace of life.  Take your time and wander through the aisles, browse local artist pieces on the walls, and talk to Tom about life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.  

A Pennsylvania Tradition

Enjoy the timeless Pennsylvania Dutch tradition of the old root beer barrel, filled with freshly brewed root beer that's got just a hint of sweetness.  Top off your frosty mug with our frozen vanilla yogurt made from local milk and you've got a delicious root beer float!  Head outside to the herb garden to kick back, relax, and watch the bumblebees hard at work.

Tom Maurer

FOUNDER

The Palmyra Real Food Emporium is operated by Tom Maurer, proprietor of Maywood Farms (grass-fed pork, free-range eggs). Tom has founded multiple producer groups, including Lebanon Valley Food & Farming Association: an organization advocating with regulators, legislators and other stakeholders in our food supply for local farmers and producers in multiple surrounding counties. This advocacy ultimately results in the freshest, safest, highest-quality food available at a fair price to farmers and producers.

 

Micah Dunn

LOCAL ARTIST

With a love for music and art, Micah Dunn is one talented chiropractor!  Even though he now has his own chiropractic office in Hummelstown, Micah still displays his fabulous artwork around the Emporium, and much of it is available to purchase!  Trains, naturescapes, and wilderness animals are just a few of his favorite subjects.
