As a family-owned and locally-operated triple bottom line business, we tend to think of ourselves as one big family.  This “family portrait” was taken at our recent monthly team meeting.  We sure are glad to be the ones making sure every trip you make to in.gredients – to support a small business and help build a stronger local food system – is a positive one.  Come say hi and get to know some of the new faces on the team!
