Josh Gerwin, Executive Chef, Owner / Dr. Field Goods Kitchen
I’m most passionate about making good food and making people happy through good food. That’s why I do what I do. I’m buy through Squash Blossom because they support local farmers and local businesses and that’s what I go for. I opened my restaurant for locals. I serve local food. It tastes better, goes farther, and is a better value.
Patrick Gharrity, Executive Chef / La Casa Sena
What I love about local food is the flavor, the nutritious benefits, and what it does for the local people. Squash Blossom supports the local economy and it supports a very important part of the American culture, which is growing our own food. Food is what brings us all together, and when it’s coming from a local farm, you get even more of that family feeling.
Leah Pokrasso, Chef, Owner / Leafy Greens
As a nutritionist and natural chef, I know how valuable fresh local produce is to our health, quality of life and the local economy. We are so very lucky to have Squash Blossom! Nina has connected me to local farms and provided me and my business with the best produce in town. And she does it all with a smile. One of the best things about this town and region is its roots in agriculture, I'm grateful to be connected through Squash Blossom!
Kelly Egolf, Owner / Verde Food Co.
Our client base is really interested in local produce. They can tell it tastes different. They are also seeking out businesses that are aligned with their personal goals of being a sustainable member of community. We love buying local produce, because the fresher the produce is the more nutrient-dense it is, and we love Squash Blossom because they make buying local easy!
