The Best Local Ingredients!
At the Blue Gate you can always count on fresh, quality food. You may not know that a majority of our ingredients are grown right here in the Shipshewana area by local farmers! From the lettuce and tomatoes in your salad to the peaches in your pie, you'll find produce grown literally "down on the farm."
The produce isn't the only thing that we find locally; most of our delicious meats are from the area as well. We want to provide the best for our customers, which includes antibiotic and hormone free ground beef (used in our favorite meatloaf), as well as locally smoked and cured ham.
Not only is your meal coming straight from the farm, but we're also working on more MSG free items. And for our gluten free customers, we continue to develop more menu items especially for you. Ask your server to see our Special Dietary Menu.
