We want to change the way our food system works; that means supporting small producers and supporting you in connecting to them. We love our producers and we want you to get to know and love them too! We adhere to a strict set of values when sourcing and our producers exemplify those values.
If you'd like to know more about each of our producers, head on over to their FarmStands.
We curate food from small to medium-sized farms, ranches, fisheries, and food producers that are doing it right. For you, that means getting the best on offer; for our producing partners, it means more security as we work together to anticipate growing seasons and the needs of our farm-to-table fans. In turn, that means more business for our farming communities and more great local food on your table.
We choose to empower the roughly 90% of small farms in the country facing extinction by delivering their produce ourselves. If mega-industrialized farming holds all the cards, we’ll have no more farmer’s markets, no more CSAs, no more responsible stewards of the land. We choose not to live in that kind of world.
We share a common mission with our farmers, ranchers, bakers, fishermen and women: to promote regenerative agriculture, animal welfare, sustainable production, and equitable labor practices.
If we’re talking traceability, here’s what it comes down to: You could walk into one of our freezers, point to a ribeye steak, and we could tell you the name of the person who raised them. We love that. You can also check out our producer pages to learn more about our rad farmers, bakers and makers.
Our farmers earn 3-4 times more through us than traditional retailers! We do that by sourcing locally, cutting out the delivery, packaging and subscription fees, and eliminating shrinking profits divvied up as food passes through multiple exchanges (an unacceptable 10% cut in some traditional supply chain models).
Some farmers wear multiple hats as bookkeepers, marketers, customer service reps, and in many cases — parents! We believe in alleviating some of these burdens by taking the reins of the nitty-gritty. (But we’ll leave the parenting up to them.)
