Homegrown x Summer

June 24, 2016

As we bid farewell to spring we’re thrilled to welcome not one but three new items to our menu.

We’re kicking off Seattle summer with our ode to longer days, lake swims and sunshine. Join us in welcoming back last summer’s seasonal sandwich, the BBQ Chicken Bacon Ranch, featuring Tom Douglas’ ancho molasses BBQ sauce smothering grilled chicken breast, nitrate-free bacon, melty cheddar, our house ranch dressing & farm fresh greens.

If you’re vegetarian, we highly recommend getting in on the action and try yours with tofu instead of bacon & chicken (vegans can just drop the cheese as our ranch is 100% plant-based).

Available in all stores starting Tuesday, June 21st.

Big thanks to our friends at Tom Douglas Restaurants for teaming up with us on this great summer collab!

We are beyond excited to partner with Olympia Provisions, Portland's finest purveyor of authentic charcuterie. Their salami is antibiotic-free pork raised in the Pacific Northwest.

Clean Energy

April 22, 2016

Homegrown

The more stores we build, the more conscious we are of our footprint on the environment. And we’re not just blowing smoke! We’re excited to announce that we’re now offsetting 100% of our stores’ electrical power usage with clean wind energy.

In search of a clean, alternative energy offset, we partnered with Arcadia Power to ensure that for every kWh of electricity we use, a kWh of clean energy is produced and put back on the grid. Sustainability is central to our mission and while so much of our focus is on where our food comes from and why, we are equally passionate about changing the way America consumes energy - from fossil fuels to renewables.

Stop by and try them out while you daydream about sunny days to come… 9N3A2181 9N3A2163 9N3A2170

Homegrown x Beecher's

February 3, 2016

Homegrown x Beecher's

In the Pacific Northwest we have many amazing local makers around us. One of Seattle’s most classic food producers is Beecher’s Homemade Cheese, a local favorite and a Homegrown favorite. We love partnering with such an incredible local company that’s focused on creating mindfully produced products free of harmful additives.

Founder Kurt Beecher Dammeier is not just passionate about cheese but also believes that people should “know more about the food they eat – where it comes from, what goes into it and how it is made.” With a vision that we so deeply connect with, Beecher’s is a natural fit for us, and a delicious one at that. We are proud to partner with Beecher’s and feature their cheese on our Bacon, Egg + Beecher’s and Ham + Beecher’s.

We took a walk down to Pike Place Market on a distinctly PNW-style rainy day to admire the cheese making process & soak up some of the beauty and flavor Seattle has to offer.
