More local suppliers come online this week

We're expecting to have an excellent selection of early season vegetables this week as four more regional farms commence their harvest.

Lucky Dog Farm was the first regional grower to supply our Home Delivery business that we commenced five years ago. Located in Hamden (in the Catskills), Richard Giles and his team produce an excellent array of vegetables that simply exude vitality.

Last year, Lucky Dog Farm was hit by a heavy flooding (the farm is on river flat) that completely wiped out all their crops. Let's hope for a luckier dog this season so we can look forward to:

  • Baby arugula
  • Lolla Rossa Lettuce
  • Magenta Lettuce
  • Baby Turnips
  • Spinach, &
  • many lovely asian-style greens
