It's a beautiful bond and relationship. A farmer is a craftsman of the highest order, coaxing life, food and nourishment from the ground so chefs can create their art. We have partners throughout New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut and we get as much produce as possible, whenever possible.
Many of the farms we work with focus on community education, and regenerative agriculture, are generational family farms, (some)organic, and so much more. What it really comes down to are the people who wake up every day and make our growing season the best it can be so we all benefit. This is how we create resilient communities while deepening our relationship with the earth.

Pomo Ridge Farm
(Prunus persica), smooth-skinned peach of the rose family (Rosaceae) that is grown throughout the warmer temperate regions of both the Northern and Southern hemispheres. A genetic variant of common peaches, the nectarine was most likely domesticated in China more than 4,000 years ago. The expression of a recessive allele is thought to be responsible for the smooth skin of nectarine fruits, which lack the fuzzy trichomes (plant hairs) characteristic of peach fruits. Nectarines are a source of vitamins A and C and are commonly eaten fresh or cooked in conserves, jams, and pies.
