Nate’s Place eatery, 750 S. National, is located in the southern mansion of the Lyon’s Twin Mansions.
The food and ambiance of the place set it apart from other restaurants in Fort Scott and now it is getting locally grown products from area farms to use in its’ recipes.
Delivery is twice a week of seasonal veggies from the Ponderosa Farm owners, Chet and Linda Bower.
Vegetables that include tomato, zucchini, squash, green peppers, cucumber, and onions have been used as part of the eatery’s menu since spring.
Later in the season, they will receive sweet potatoes, as well.
“Our oven-gilled veggies are all fresh, locally sourced produce,” Shawn O’Brien, manager at Nate’s Place said.
“Our sandwiches are amazing with fresh tomato on it,” O’Brien said.
On July 6 they started using fresh farm eggs from Natalie Snyder’s Happy Hen Farm.
“An over-easy (fresh) egg is much more stable on the plate,” O’Brien said.
