Out on a farm, the newest dining concept coming to Centre County is about ready to start serving, offering a genuine farm-to-table experience.
RE Farm Café, at 1000 Fillmore Road, is under the ownership of Monica and Duke Gastiger, who have been a part of the State College food scene for years, owning former local favorites Spat’s Café and Speakeasy and The Rathskeller.
In 2016 they literally “bought the farm” with the purchase of Windswept Farm, near University Park Airport. Their vision was to provide a dining experience that customers will take to heart, and then home with them.
“We’ve had restaurants downtown and we tried to source responsibly there, but we were looking at retiring, and there were lots of options. But we decided we wanted to do something here because this community is important,” said Monica. “So, we started to think about what we could bring our talents and our passion to. And having a small restaurant on a farm seemed like the ideal solution.”
