Our goal is to connect soil, animal, plant, rancher, butcher, chef & customer…all in a simple chicken wire basket.

As the demand for healthier yet casual food options has grown, food halls have become increasingly popular. This popularity along with the lower startup operating expenses has created a prime opportunity for vendors (restaurateurs, food trucks, etc.) to locate themselves in food halls, where there is in many ways greater built-in foot traffic than even some stand-alone restaurant spaces.
