A Perry County Tradition Since 1949

Ida and William DeiterIda and William DeiterThe Ranch House family welcomes you! We’re glad you joined us today. We’re thankful to have so many wonderful, appreciative customers. Pop and Mom Deiter would be proud of the great home cooking traditions carried on here at the Ranch House ever since they opened in 1949.

Their eleven children: Ed, Kathryn, Helen, Mary (Doll), Roy, Grace, Erma, Verna, Lewis, Billy and Zelma knew a great Pennsylvania Dutch style meal would be on the table each and every night.

Our second generation, Grandma Verna and Grandpa Tom Stepp retired in 1986 leaving their three children – Darlene, Linda and Tom to continue the tradition. We currently employ 40 of the finest people you’ll ever meet! We continue to look to the future and keep up with the current trends, while preserving the best of the past.

Our Ranch House third and fourth generations are working hard to give you our best, just like Grandma would have wanted.

The Ranch House is proud to be an innovator in providing menu choices to our friends on special diets. We have offered sugar free desserts, vegetarian and low fat selections for over 25 years! Our Heart Healthy Choices have been carefully reviewed by the professionals at Hershey Medical Center and prepared with care by our staff to be limited in total fat, cholesterol, and sodium to meet the guidelines established by the Heart Healthy Program.
