We love farm fresh food just as much as you, which is why we select Green String Farm in Petaluma as one of our sources for the bright, bold and tasty vegetables we bring to your table.
Green String Farm was started by Bob Cannard who has been farming sustainably for three decades. He grew up in the nursery business, and has developed a natural process approach to agriculture. The “natural process approach” consists of attention and care to the soil used to grow the foods we love. By keeping the farm free of pesicides, chemicals, and using cover crops, compost, beneficial microbes, even crushed volcanic rock, the system at the farm has become self-nurishing, and requires less human intervention. The resulting product is fantastic healthy fresh fruits and vegetables that even graced the tables of Alice Waters’ Berkeley restaurant, Chez Panissee.
We are happy to have Green String Farm as one of our main sources for our daily produce but also for our seasonal needs. Some of these ingredients go into making our fantastic seasonal sorbet, as well as changing up flavors for our ever popular Gioia Burrata salad.
These are just some of the fresh herbs and produce that we procure on a nearly daily basis from Green String Farm. Sustainability is important to us, as it helps us provide you with the best tasting, consistent and always renewable ingredients that you have come to expect. Living and operating in the Bay Area, we have some of the best food in the world. To always bring these items from a farm to your table is an important part of how we operate, and an important part of Scandinavian food in general. Fresh foraging from farm to table is what it is all about. We hope you enjoy eating it as much as we enjoy making it for you!
