Purveyors

Tomas Keller once said "... what we do can be explained in a very simple equation; Product + Execution. That's it! Don't over think it and don't over look it!" New York City can be a wealth quality and availability. Too much as a matter of fact, great producers can often be overlooked. We believe that it all starts with purchasing and sourcing. Cultivating a relationship with a purveyor can be just as important as the cooks in your kitchen!

Each image is an informative and expandable link, please get comforatable and explore whats been hiding around New York City this whole time! ENJOY!

 

 

Wild Game  -  Well as I call it Mostly-Wild Game. Sourced from several ranches and preserves, our Venison and Elk is free to live a virtually wild life! Parasites and predators are the only factors controlled on the preserves we source from, no antibiotics and no hormones, these are refereed to as "Heritage Game" animals, meaning they are one generation removed from fully wild genetics. This meat is like nothing you've ever had, unless you are yourself an avid hunter/games men.

ROSENKRANS FARMS   -  located in Seneca Falls, NY this small farm can produce some of the best beef, mostly due to a proprietary breed known as "Black Baldies". Grass fed, humanely raised, and wonderfully marbled this is something that must be tasted to be understood! The beef industry is a fight, and finding the good guys in this fight can be the most difficult part! I don't think there's anyone, that would visit and explore this site, that if they had seen a factory farm would continue to patronize it. Jeff Rosenkrans is the good guy!

Bringing an heirloom breed that Americans had all but forgone in favor of the faster, cheaper, easier to raise Peeking duck; the Duclair has become Mr. Rosenthal's contribution to us all!

Wild Edibles     -   Started in 1992 with the so simple idea of nothing shy of the best, Wild Edibles was off and running. Their starting inventory of "Mammoth" scallops and, at the time unheard of for a large scale purveyor, line caught local wild fish got them instant credibility that they have maintained! Today they are big enough to maintain a reliable stock but still small enough to know you by voice and be able to personally explain the specials first hand! It's a great time to do business with these guys!

Four Story Hill Farm    -  has been raising pigs in a responsible manner for over 20 years. While not long in farm standards, in bio-dynamic terms its damn impressive, the team over there are such perfectionist and so dedicated to their product that they have aggressively fought to maintain standards and exceed their own expectations for the potential of their farm!

Violet Hills Farms   -    Is our preferred poultry producer, with two and a half decades exploring different methods they have not only created a natural feed that gives something to their birds that no others are getting but more significantly they have created their own breed! And best of all, they keep it small scale, high quality, and amazing flavor!

The Old Chatham Sheepherding Company  -    (and yes this REALLY IS their property!) - Is our preferred vendor for Sheep's Milk and products. The only thing we can say about this operation is if you get reincarnated as a sheep; do it here! These farmers have come up with a diet that most replicates the original Irish/Scottish feed that made Sheep a staple in human diets. After about 5 mins talking to them you'll see they do it all out of love!

Battenkill Creamery  -     Is our preferred dairy producer. With their "Slow" production method, which uses a lower temperature but longer exposure for pasteurization, they are producing a milk that has the shelf-life and safety of an ultra- pasteurized  product but the flavor of a raw milk!
