Being nestled in the Carolinian forest, we are surrounded by a lush, ecological habitat that is home to unique flora and fauna such as: the tulip tree, pawpaw, and the rare southern flying squirrel. This makes the local area very special and one that we feel needs to be respected, protected, and celebrated.
Our modus operandi is to tread as lightly on the Earth as we can. If possible, we’d actually like to leave it in better shape then we found it. Needless to say, the business approach we’ve taken is a little different. To create an environmental, social, and economic impact in the community that supports us, we’ve placed the following values at the core of our business model:
"Truly great flavour - the kind that produces plain old jaw-dropping wonder - is a powerful lens into the natural world because taste breaks through the delicate things we can't see or perceive."
"Eating is inescapably an agricultural act, and how we eat determines, to a considerable extent, how the world is used."
"The decisions you make are a choice of values that reflect your life in every way."
"You don't have to cook fancy or complicated masterpieces - just good food from fresh ingredients."
"In nature's economy the currency is not money - it is life."
