Yesterday was Earth Day but to us though, every day is pretty much Earth Day.
Our goal as a small Tucson food focused business is to support our local farms, ranches and producers as much as we can. Our fridges are stocked with the freshest locally grown and harvested produce and our baskets nearly overflow with citrus, tubers, tomatoes and seasonal delights that were farmed just a few miles from our funky gourmet Bodega.
The meats we carry are all humanely raised by generational, hardworking Arizona ranchers. If we don’t bake our own bread, which we do, then you are privy to James Beard nominated Barrio Bread. We have an herb garden on our back dining patio and we compost as if it is going out of style.
Our menu dishes are well thought out and chef driven, sourcing local ingredients and low impact components. The items in the shop that do not come from Tucson or Arizona are all fair trade, with biodegradable packaging, most of which give back to their community either financially or through donation.
We are proud to be a future UNESCO recognized business because at the heart of who we are and what we do it all from the heart. All of us here believe that by supporting and utilizing our neighboring family operated farms and ranches that we not only provide you with the best tasting nutritious food but we are also nurturing our community through our love of real food made by real people for a really good cause.
That cause is you. Our friends, patrons and neighbors.
So thank you. And thank you Mother Earth for all that you do for us. There is a good amount of folks out there that take you for granted but there are also a good amount of good people trying to make you as happy as you deserve to be.
