Chef Mary and Chef Katie believe that the freshest local, sustainably produced whole foods make the best ingredients and are committed to sustainability. Eating sustainably produced whole foods is an investment in your family's health and the health of our planet. When we purchase local ingredients we invest in our local farmers and the local economy, preserve farmland and have a better understanding of how our food is produced. We believe it is important to be mindful of the effects our food system has on the environment, public health, communities and animal welfare and we purchase our ingredients with gratitude to those that produce our food without compromising future generations' ability to do the same.

When we shop for ingredients for our meals, whenever possible, we purchase ingredients that are whole or minimally processed, organic foods or food grown with little to no synthetic pesticides, free of added preservatives and artificial ingredients, grown without genetically modified seeds, grown by local or regional farmers, fair-trade, pasture raised or free-range, certified humane and free of hormones or antibiotics.

We realize that priorities, when it comes to food, will be different for each client. We’ll discuss your specific priorities in the client assessment interview and answer any questions you may have.

When purchasing your groceries, we will always have a strict eye for quality.
