One of the main questions we hear from potential future customers is why should I buy product from The Chef’s Garden and what sets your farm apart?
We are proud of the outstanding reputation we have developed over the past thirty years as a company renowned for its noteworthy customer service and the production of exceptional specialty and heirloom vegetables, herbs, microgreens and edible flowers grown for the world’s most esteemed and innovative chefs and restaurants who turn to us for the highest quality products available anywhere.
There are many reasons for the good reputation we have developed over the past three decades. Here are a few of the facets unique to The Chef’s Garden that we feel have shaped who we are:

Delivering Direct from the Farm: On a daily basis, we hand-harvest, pick-to-order and ship product to you overnight to assure that you receive the freshest, most vibrant and flavorful produce available. This is our efficiently shipped Earth to Table® promise that ensures ultimate freshness, incredible flavor and prolonged shelf-life, resulting in less waste for your business.

We are confident that you will find our fresh vegetables, microgreens, herbs and edible flowers to be the freshest and most flavorful anywhere.
