GRANVILLE OHIO - Granville’s Orchard House Bed & Breakfast is trying to take local sourcing to the next level.

Owners Dean Lowry and Jodi Melfi have established partnerships with local businesses to provide their guests with items like baked goods, coffee and organic produce, among many other things.

“Our guests are worldly, health and socially conscientious, and they want something meaningful with their stay,” explained Lowry.

In addition to being the B&B's full-time innkeeper, Lowry is also the breakfast chef.

“My goal is to locally source as many of the ingredients as possible,” he said, “such as my hens' eggs, veggies, fruits and herbs from our gardens, coffee from One Line Coffee, tea from Petali, meats from local farms, breads from Lucky Cat, fruit from local producers and of course, maple syrup from Loudon Crest Farms. If I could figure out a popular alternative for orange juice, I could get very close to 100 percent local!”
