Welcome to The Freighthouse. Your hosts are the three generations of the Paris family. Our local farm, Tamarlane Farm, is the source for much of the food served at The Freighthouse Restaurant, a restaurant with a 'green' commitment where the food is prepared by the same hands that grew it.
Farm fresh, local and organic ingredients are the core of our business. We serve certified organic grass fed beef and certified organic vegetables, local maple syrup, and menu choices prepared with fresh local ingredients. Enjoy a cup of fresh brewed coffee or order from our full service espresso counter. We offer a daily selection of fresh baked pastries and desserts. Choose from over 60 flavors of ice cream.
We are also the purveyors of Carmen's Ice Cream, an ice cream 'legend' that has been serving customers since 1979 and has been named to the "Sundae Hall of Fame" and is one of America's Top 500 Sundae Places.
We proudly serve Starbucks Coffee at our full-service Starbucks® Espresso shop, featuring our own signature maple macchiato, caffé latte, cappuccino, caffé mocha, caramel macchiato, and caffé Americano
As an authentic 1868 Freighthouse, it's no surprise that we also offer seasonal train excursions, like our ever-popular North Pole Express.
The Freighthouse's mission is to support local and organic farmers, to reduce waste by recycling, composting at our own on-farm composting site, and to better the world by continuously improving our business and by sourcing with discretion. Your support supports this mission, and helps to make the world better than we found it. Thank you.
