Established in 1997.Established in 1997 One of our primary ethos we started out with was sourcing of food and food products - to raise the bar on quality in sourcing local and organic.
Chickens kept in small cages their whole life, huge feedlots and slaughterhouses. These are some of the realities of today's big food culture. We, on the other hand, work with farmers who use organic methods and ranchers who graze their cattle in pastures. The chickens are free range, the eggs organic and the cattle raised exclusively on natural grasses. And when slaughtered it is done humanely and under strict supervision. As for fish, all are Marine Stewardship Council certified, meaning they come from sustainable stocks, mostly wild, mostly localFlavor comes from how long produce is allowed to grow on the vine, how a cheese is aged and how long, what cows eat and how they are treated, under what conditions chickens are allowed to mature. When you insist on local, organic and sustainable you get better taste.
