2 Fresh, Local, Familiar, Delicious… That’s FarmSource Eat’n Park Hospitality Group is committed to purchasing at least 20% of our food from local farmers, grower’s Cooperatives, and producers. FarmSource is an initiative to find and partner with some of the finest local growers and producers of food in our communities. FarmSource is utilizing suppliers that follow the high standards set by: –Local health departments –State Department of Agriculture –FDA –and other regulatory agencies

3 PRODUCE All products would be preferably shipped through one of our established produce purveyors. The following distributors are now approved sites to purchase locally grown produce: Paragon Monteverde – Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania Pocono Produce – Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania A. Lo Presti – Cleveland, Ohio Kegel Produce – Lancaster, Pennsylvania Roth Produce – Columbus, Ohio Hearn Kirkwood – Hanover, Maryland Our relationship between the farms and produce supplier has grown stronger through the Pennsylvania Association of Sustainable Agriculture (PASA). They are a non-profit organization that works to improve the economic and social prosperity of Pennsylvania food and agriculture.

4 Produce Market Report Week of October 2, 2006 Good Produce Values FRUITSVEGETABLES ApplesOrangesBroccoliOnions - All Grapes - RedPearsLettuce – Leaf & IcebergRomaine HoneydewsSquash – YellowCauliflower High Priced Produce FRUITSVEGETABLES RaspberriesBlueberriesAsparagusTomatoes - All BlackberriesCornPeppers - All Produce Alert STRAWBERRIES - High quality new crop strawberry shipments, harvested from Central Florida growers are now currently available in moderate supply. Look for berry quality and size to improve dramatically as Florida growers continue to replenish inventory in the coming weeks. The strawberry market has already shown signs of improvements and is anticipated to stabilize in the mid-to-late January. LETTUCE – Iceberg, Leaf and Romaine are starting to show signs of quality issues due to some frost conditions experienced earlier. Expect to see some occasional outer leaf damage due to the frost. Prices and supplies remain stable for this time of the year. TOMATOES - Supplies continue to be very light causing prices to go up again this week on all tomato products. Expect quality and color to be below average. We will closely monitor tomato products to insure we have the best available product for shipping each day. BELL PEPPERS (Green) – The Pepper market is to remain steady for the next couple of weeks. By the second week of January we should see some (new crop) Peppers which were re-planted after the Hurricane. These peppers will bring on additional volume which should help ease the market. The new crop of peppers will have better quality and better size.

Dairies that are rBGH Free Harrisburg Dairies Ritchey’s Dairy Guers Dairy Schneider Valley Dairy Farms Byrnes Dairy What is rBGH? Recombinant Bovine Growth Hormone, sometimes referred as BGH, rBGH, BST or rBST, is a genetically engineered copy of a naturally occurring hormone produced by cows. The naturally occurring hormone regulates the amount of milk a cow can produce; the genetically engineered copy of the hormone is used specifically to boost those amounts, in turn producing more milk. Eat'n Park Hospitality Group believes this hormone even if it isn’t harmful suspect it detracts from the purity of milk and may cause health problems in dairy producing cows. The FDA has said no significant difference has been shown and no test can distinguish between milk from rBGH treated and untreated cows.

We are currently working with the Pennsylvania Cattleman’s Association (PCA) and they report there are about 12,000 different owners of beef cattle in Pennsylvania (over 1 million head of cattle are harvested annually). Since, Pennsylvania has a high population of beef cattle; we are working with PCA on establishing a brand of Pennsylvania beef. Essentially, this will be beef that is raised and slaughtered in Pennsylvania. This branding program will cut down on the amount of product that shipped to the west to be slaughter and hopefully providing a higher premium for those farmers that are producing this product Since, Pennsylvania has a high population of beef cattle; we are working with PCA on establishing a brand of Pennsylvania beef.
