We work with growers that share our philosophy of prioritising flavour in their growing, and we have a unique ability to build relationships based on trust and a common vision. It takes time, patience, tireless commitment and a wealth of expertise to achieve the fullest sensory experience.

From Yorkshire and Cornwall in the UK to the southern tip of the Sicilian coast in Italy, our producers span a wide area of the European continent. What unites them is their commitment to growing for flavour.

We trust our producers to grow as they know best, using hard-earned knowledge and care for the land. For some, this knowledge has been gained from generations-long farming of the same vegetable, as it is with the Tomlinsons and the Yorkshire Rhubarb they grow. Others, like Mike the Woodman, have dedicated their life’s work to one particular cultivar, saving seeds year-on-year to perfect the resulting crop.

Here are profiles of just a few of the growers we work with.

Our sourcing goes much deeper into the regions where we buy and it is as reliant on our team’s knowledge & expertise as it is on the passion of our growers.

The majority of our produce comes from small farms between Northern Maine and Southern Pennsylvania. We also work with many of the growers who participate in the New York City Greenmarkets, including Mountain Sweet Berry Farm, Alewife Farm, Norwich Meadows Farm, Tamarack Hollow Farm and Campo Rosso Farm.

In the winter and early spring, we count on California for specific varieties that can’t be found locally. We’ve partnered with Martin Bournhonesque to deliver fresh salad greens, baby root vegetables and more from his Salinas farm twice a week.

We’ve spent the past ten years developing close relationships with some of the best independent growers in continental Europe. This means that we are now in a unique position to bring outstanding heirloom varieties of radicchio to New York from some of the few remaining specialized growers in the Veneto region of Italy. Our buying team visits them every year to see how the seasons is unfolding; these annual visits allow us to understand their growing techniques in depth and to follow the development of new varieties, as most growers save their own seed.
