The Restaurant’s Culinary Garden grows unique, seasonally appropriate crops using organic and sustainable techniques on 5 acres. Emphasis is placed on experimentation with new crops and varieties, new growing and cultivation methods, and the utilization of all edible portions of the plant and the plant’s life-cycle. Working closely with a group of extremely talented and creative culinary minds we create crop plans that allow us to grow intensively and produce a wide range of crops throughout the year.
We strive to provide a high volume and range of products that include microgreens, field crops, cut and edible flowers, in addition to more experimental and smaller-scale products.
