About Us

Acorn Pantry is a gourmet kitchenware store selling the best in quality and value that the kitchenware market has to offer.  Our sales staff's goal is to educate the customer and share our personal love of cooking, food and some of our fond family memories that centered around the dining table and shaped who we are today.  Acorn Pantry is woman owned and operated. We started in a 450 sq ft location which expanded to 650 sq ft. In 2021, an empty historic mercantile on Main St became our new greatly expanded location! We currently have about 2,500 sq ft, a cooking school and event space in the back of the store. Chipmunk Cheeks, Gourmet Treats, our ice cream, candy, homemade popcorn and fudge sweet shop, is in the other half of our building and there are 3 seperate airbnbs located upstairs in the historic apartments. 

I, Holly (Mangelsen) Torbenson, own and operate the Acorn Pantry. I am married to my greatest supporter, Steve and I have 2 daughters and 4 step sons. I purchased Acorn Pantry in 2007 as my love of all things culinary came from my sweet momma. She was the world's best home cook. Whenever she cooked or baked, people asked for her recipes.  She loved to cook and bake but also loved to share her creations with anyone in need including all our elderly neighbors! All my favorite childhood memories revolve around food and family gatherings.  My mom was the Gadget Queen, always finding the latest and greatest kitchen gadgets and cooking tools. As I buy for Acorn Pantry, I think fondly of her and the love of cooking she instilled in me. Please allow the amazing team at Acorn Pantry to help you find the right tools for your kitchen so you too can create special memories around your table.
