We are passionate about changing the food system through partnerships with the best sustainable growers, ranchers and producers around the country.
Here’s how we think about each of our ingredients
Meats & Eggs
We source from ranchers that we know and trust in order to get the cleanest and best tasting meat and eggs. We value ethical treatment of animals and an animal-centered approach, including animals raised on pasture. All of our meat ingredients come from ranches that use all-vegetarian diets and are nitrate-free, antibiotic-free and hormone-free. All of our eggs are Certified Humane and pasture-raised.
We partner with local farms and distributors to source the freshest, highest-quality produce. We value responsible land stewardship and labor practices. We source seasonal local produce from our own Homegrown Sprouting Farms and other regional farm partners. Not only does fresh, local produce taste better, it is better for you the environment as well. We follow the guidance of the Environmental Working Group’s “Dirty Dozen list” to ensure that we are only sourcing these crops when they are grown with organic practices.
We work with our bakery partners to produce simple, nutritious breads, made with 100% non-GMO ingredients. Our gluten-free breads are made in certified gluten-free facilities.
We partner with trusted artisan coffee roasteries and tea companies with the highest sourcing practices. All of our coffee and tea is direct trade or fair trade certified, founded on close relationships and transparent supply chains. We feature handcrafted beverages made with organic ingredients and free of high fructose corn syrup.
Dairy & Tofu
We have close relationships with our dairy farmers, local artisan cheesemakers and tofu producers in order to offer the most flavorful and unique ingredients. All of our milk and cheeses are hormone and antibiotic free. Our milk and tofu are Certified Organic.
We partner with small, local food producers to source delicious, handcrafted ingredients. All of our aiolis, sauces and salad dressings are 100% plant-based and gluten free. Just like our fresh produce, we follow the guidance of the Environmental Working Group’s “Dirty Dozen list” to ensure that we are only sourcing these ingredients with organic certification.
“We believe in a concept that we call “Growing with Purpose,” an idea that as our economic value increases, our positive environmental impact should too. As we scale as a business, our food sourcing model will increasingly reshape the food system. Our food is sourced sustainably, ingredient by ingredient, farm by farm, as we filter our sourcing decisions through what is best for all stakeholders – people, animals and the land.”
