We thank our lucky stars often that we’re located in San Francisco, where the bounty and diversity of tasty Cali produce is so accessible to us. One of our city’s other advantages is the wealth of creative thinkers here, which is why we’re turning to all of you for our latest conundrum:
This line will include tasty items like:
- The beef and pork from livestock we’re raising on our farm
- Pickled veggies we’re making with the help of farmers and preservers in our Gleaning Project
- Honey we harvest from our rooftop and Sonoma hives
- Tomato sauce we make and jar with the late summer harvest so you can taste the sweetness of local growers into the winter
What ties all of these together is that we’re doing them the old fashioned way. Unlike most private label lines, which are almost a case study in outsourcing, our goal is to learn through the process of making each of these foods, and to have an intimacy with all steps and people involved. We want to constantly dig deeper for greater transparency and less waste…and share what we’re learning!
Send us an email by Sunday, July 1st to give us your best shot at a name for this line–the winner will get a sampler box of pickles, preserves and sauces from our Gleaning Project (and see their suggested name printed on Bi-Rite jars for years to come)!
