Yes, we’re picky about the growers, producers, and small farms we work with. We’re not looking for perfectly shaped, commodity produce. Instead, we focus on finding the best quality, flavor, and sustainable growing practices around. We source locally in Massachusetts, but more importantly, we source the best—whether that’s the catch of the day at our local Scituate pier or wild chanterelle mushrooms foraged in Saskatchewan.
If it’s heirloom squash or handmade pasta you’re after, we’ll find it for you—and deliver it, too. We’ve spent the last two decades building strong relationships with chef-level wholesale distributors, farms, producers, and growers—both locally in Massachusetts and around the world. We vet everyone we partner with, so you don’t have to.
As we grow, we’ll continue to add new partners, ensuring our home cooks always have unparalleled access to the best of the best, whether it’s from down the street or across the border.

R.C. Nueske, using a recipe brought over from Prussia in the late 1800’s, started making and selling bacon and sausages to folks in the northwoods of Wisconsin as a side hustle during the Great Depression.
Called by R.W. Apple “the holy grail of bacon”, and mentioned in over 100 cookbooks as well as the New York Times and Chicago Tribune,” Nueske’s bacon is a bit different from some of the other bacons (even excellent ones) you might be used to. The family, now in their 3rd generation of business, has protected the integrity of their product by refusing to compromise or change the methods they’ve spent so long perfecting.
