The company's network of farmers and artisans—and year round service—gives local residents a healthy alternative to conventional grocery stores, while providing the freshest organic produce and natural groceries on the market.

See the recipes below.


Commonly referred to as, "Salad in a Jar," the layering method works by keeping the firmer, less absorbent ingredients and dressing apart from the more delicate ingredients. It can be pulled off using any tall, narrow container with a sealed lid.

Mouth-wide Mason jars work great—pint-sized being used for smaller side-salads, large for entrée-sized salads, and quart-sized for multiple servings
of salad.

Layering your salad ingredients in the following order ensures a fresh, crisp, zesty salad:

  • Salad dressing
  • Hard chopped fruits and veggies
  • Grains, beans or pasta
  • Cheeses and protein
  • Soft chopped fruits and veggies
  • Nuts or seeds
  • Salad greens
