On Tuesday, January 24th members of our sales team along with Corporate Chef Daniel Elardo had the pleasure of attending the Maryland’s Best Agriculture Buyer-Grower Event. This event featured a selection of the best local growers and producers of fine quality meats, cheeses, produce, wines, seafood, and more. The event, which was set up to help connect Maryland’s local farmers with food service professionals in the area, has grown in size every year of its’ existence.
We had an amazing time seeing vendors that we currently use, and meeting new ones, who will help us to be able to continue to offer local, sustainable, natural, and delicious foods to our wonderful clients! Some of the vendors we look forward to working with in the future are Wyatt & Jenn from Lehigh View Farm, in Union Bridge. Wyatt and Jenn produce not only delicious produce, but pasture raised beef and rich aged cheeses from their own herd of cattle. They currently offer Cheddar, Colby, Pepper Jack, Herbal Jack, Smoked Cheddar, and Garlic Cheddar, which we would love to serve at your event. Roseda Beef is another local artisan who we look forward to working with. They raise cattle in Monkton, Maryland using all natural, hormone free methods, and treat their operation as a farm rather than a factory. These qualities are hard to find in modern day cattle farming. Green Farm Produce and Naturals produces quality organic produce, naturally raised meats and a few products that will knock your socks off. Owner, George Mortimer produces small batch jams, jellies, and butters that he produces from crops he harvests on his farm. Some of these items like the Habenero and Jalapeno Pepper Jelly make the perfect topper for chicken and fish dishes. We look forward to working with these companies and many more in the future.
