Meet Altobelli Family Farm

Our farm pals at Altobelli Family Farm in Kinderhook, NY grow some of the tastiest corn you'll ever eat + that's no surprise they've been farming since 1953. John Altobelli, the grandson of the founder, joined the business in the '80s after relocating from the city + spearheaded their focus on corn (now most of their production). Every ear of corn is hand selected by John + his team, so you get only the sweetest, juiciest + best. Their bicolor corn is amazing boiled, grilled or right off the cob.

Freshly-Baked by Our Local Partners

What's the next best thing to always having a loaf in your oven? It's treating yourself to any of these exquisite baked goods and supporting a local artisan. From everyday breads for enjoying at breakfast or lunch to one-of-a-kind finds you won't find anywhere else, you can be sure that each of the items on this list is made nearby with quality ingredients and lots of care and love.

Our Local Grass-Fed Beef Program

It's the closest you can get to farmers' market quality without having to leave the house. Our 100% grass-fed local beef program is made up of a group of family-owned farms in the Northeast that strictly follow a humane and sustainable agricultural model. The herds are raised without hormones or antibiotics and are exclusively grass-fed, which means they're never given grain or corn. This not only benefits the farmer, the animals, and the environment, but also the consumer, as genuine, grass-fed cattle results in meat that's leaner, more tender, more flavorful, and remarkably juicy. Because we request the absolute highest quality from our farmers, we have exclusive access to the cream of the crop, which we're now able to provide to you 365 days a year!

Cool Down With Crisp Bowery Greens

Bowery grows produce like nothing you've ever tasted before--each bite bursting with flavor and pesticide-free for perfectly refreshing summer salads. And because their produce is grown locally indoors 365 days a year, every leaf is harvested at peak freshness and nutrition... all while using less water, less land and creating less waste.

Meet Hepworth Farms

Fact: vegetables taste better when they're local. And that's why we love Hepworth farms, a 7th generation family farm in Milton, NY (just 75 miles north of NYC on the Hudson River). Over time, farmers Amy Hepworth, her twin sister Gail, and Gerry Greco have committed to "dechemicalization" - transitioning from standard farming practices to a whole systems approach. Today, they have over 400 acres of NOFA-certified production land yielding over 400 varieties of organic vegetables - and we love every single one of them.
