Food Operators Fair Food fosters connections between producers, farmers and restaurants

Many Philadelphians care about

what happens between the farm and their fork. They want to know who grew their food, how far it traveled, and that the fruits, vegetables and meats they buy are grown using safe, sustainable and humane farming practices. ¶ It’s because you care that we feel a great responsibility to produce a Local Food Guide that is accurate, credible and informative. This guide occupies an important space in Fair Food’s collective consciousness, and we go to great lengths to uphold the integrity of the guide as a consumer resource. Every winter, Fair Food contacts all the suppliers in our network for their wholesale customer lists. This year, we asked 140 farmers and food hubs to share that valuable and sensitive information with The Local Food Guide was us for the purpose of creating this compiled by Fair Food, guide. We then compile, verify and produced by Grid and vet the listings to ensure that the published by Red Flag Media, businesses that say they buy local 1032 Arch St., Third Floor, are, in fact, purchasing products Philadelphia, PA 19107. from local farms. From those lists we also discover a handful of businesses that are buying from local farms, but The red flag icon aren’t saying it! signifies a business is a Support the businesses that member of Fair Food. support our local farms. We want you to use these listings. publisher Visit the places you find in these Alex Mulcahy pages: join a CSA or buying club, check out a farmstand, book a table Managing editor at one of these restaurants, buy a cup Sara Schwartz of coffee from these cafés, choose a locally made ice cream at the grocery art director store (shop at one of these grocery Danni Sinisi stores!). In this guide are hundreds of opportunities for you to make a difference in strengthening PhiladelAD SALES / DISTRIBUTION phia’s local food system. Jesse Kerns This year’s guide focuses on the relationships that Fair Food holds





with farmers and buyers. Grid has brought these relationships to light with an in-depth look at one of our favorite new food artisans, Weckerly’s Ice Cream. They’ve also peppered the pages with quotes from farmers such as Nolan Thevenet of Stryker Farm, who now sells his pork to chef Nick Mezzina of Misconduct Tavern. You’ll also hear from Gilda Doganiero, who no longer needs to rely on “Franken-eggs” to make her delicious biscotti, and Deb Lutz, who, new to the local food scene, was able to build her local supply chain with referrals from Fair Food. I always like to remind people that much of Fair Food’s work happens behind the scenes. Behind the events, the classes, the tastings and the wheels of local cheeses piled up at the Fair Food Farmstand, Fair Food has built a network of relationships and connections in the Philadelphia food system. Like a spider web, the network is sometimes hard to see, but it’s sticky and strong. Warm Regards,

THE REAL SCOOP ON LOCAL SOURCING Fair Food connects Weckerly’s Ice Cream to the freshest ingredients written by Sara Schwartz · illustration by Hilary Sedgwick


ce cream is , as

Jen Satinsky says, the “total comfort food.” You reach for it when you’re feeling blue, it’s the encore to birthday cake, and a treat to indulge in on a hot day. It’s also, according to Jen, a great way to showcase the brilliance of a single ingredient. Armed with this vision, Jen and her husband, Andrew Satinsky, created Weckerly’s Ice Cream in early 2012. They chose to sell the small-batch ice cream at the Green Line Café in West Philadelphia. When it came time to start sourcing ingredients, going the local route “was a no-brainer,” Jen says. “I love using local and seasonal ingredients—it only makes the ice cream better.” Because Jen had worked as a pastry chef for over a decade at the White Dog Café, she had connections with some local food providers. The White Dog, founded by sustainability leader Judy Wicks in 1983, was a trailblazer in sourcing locally, its success led Wicks to found Fair Food in 2000 and share what she had learned. While the Satinskys utilized their personal connections for about a year, they wanted to work with a larger number of farms and fairtrade sources, so they became members of Fair Food in March 2013. Fair Food introduced them to the Lancaster Farm Fresh Cooperative, and soon Weckerly’s began using cream from one of its suppliers, Seven Stars. The high butterfat product comes from grass-fed cows on a biodynamic farm 40 miles from Philadelphia. “Before working with Fair Food, we bought cream from a variety of local sources, but saw no consistency of quality, nor were we able to build a relationship with a single source of our most important ingredient,” Andrew says. “Not only has the organic cream improved the quality and flavor of our ice cream, but it has given us the opportunity to work with a very local farm whose managers and owners have set a high bar in the area’s premium dairy sector.” It’s a common story for many restaurants and companies in and around Philadelphia. Since 2000, Fair Food has helped hundreds of

producers—from limited-acre farms to largescale wholesale suppliers—grow their business by being what they call “value chain facilitators,” which is just another way of saying that they connect those that need to those that provide—while keeping it sustainable and local. And Fair Food maintains objectivity by not accepting a commission from the supplier, giving them a level of impartiality that’s important to their members. The relationship between Weckerly’s and Fair Food didn’t end there. Over the past year and a half, Fair Food Executive Director Ann Karlen and Farmstand Product Manager Alex Jones put the Satinskys in touch with more farms. That meant that Weckerly’s was able to purchase “the best” seasonal fruits and herbs without wasting time trying to research each farm on their own. Organic cream, seasonal fruits, cocoa and vanilla beans, and eggs for the custard all contribute to the popular French-style ice cream. Weckerly’s now purchases food from the variety of farms and distributors that they had hoped to find. They buy directly from Three Springs Fruit Farm, Beechwood Orchards, Paradise Hill Farm, Brogue Hydroponics and Green Meadow Farm, and Shellbark Hollow provides the goat milk for Weckerly’s caramel ice cream. They continue to buy dairy from Seven Stars and Maplehofe Dairy through the Lancaster Farm Fresh Cooperative, which, in addition to Common Market, also provides some produce. For LFFC, working with Weckerly’s had a familiar feel. “It’s great. It’s just like an extension of the family,” says Casey Spacht, general manager of LFFC. He adds that they’re always looking for new products that Weckerly’s can incorporate into their ice cream: “We love their ice cream, everybody here raves about it.” The nonprofit farmer-owned organic co-op has worked with Fair Food since 2006, when the cooperative was just nine farmers. Today they boast a network of approximately 90 member farmers and work with more than 100 others

that they purchase from and support during the year. LFFC prides itself on working with small family farms; Spacht says that the largest farm is 35 acres. Working with Fair Food has helped to cultivate the local food system and empowered LFFC, Spacht says. “As a direct result of their work, we’re seeing a resurgence of family farmers,” he says. That is music to Karlen’s ears. “Our goal is twofold: to grow the market demand for local food and to facilitate the relationships to bring that food to the marketplace,” she says. “For Weckerly’s, that meant a relationship to us as a middleman for Seven Stars cream, but over time the appropriate business relationship shifted to be with [Lancaster Farm Fresh Co-op].” Weckerly’s is equally excited about the work that Fair Food does in supporting all sides. “What impresses me the most is that [Fair Food is] able to make these connections and speed up the process without removing the human element,” Andrew says. “Fair Food spends just as much time making sure that their producer members remain connected to the sources of their ingredients. This has helped Jen and I to build relationships through the process, and given us a great deal of fulfillment in the daily operations of our business.” That success happened in part because of Weckerly’s dedication to local, Jones says. “While we’re happy when any buyer is doing more local purchasing, the Satinskys really built their business around this high-integrity philosophy that using the best ingredients in season and forming strong relationships with suppliers leads to the best product,” she says. Fair Food looks to a future where more businesses take advantage of their network. “There’s such a great need right now for farms and food artisans to not just produce great food, but run sustainable businesses,” Karlen says.

Misconduct ordered a half pasture-raised Berkshire Pig from us and made some really delicious dishes including a pork belly sandwich topped with fried sweet potatoes. The chef at Misconduct, Nick Mezzina, told us that he was loving our pork and that having Stryker Farm pork was a big customer draw. We are always happy to work with new customers, especially those that order whole and half pigs, as it helps reduce waste.” — Nolan A. Thevenet, Stryker Farm

“The best part of working with Fair Food was getting in touch with farmers. Most likely, I would not have found Stryker Farms on my own; but because of the guide, I was able to reach out, and now I get my pork from them, and also increased the amount of specials we can offer by using the whole pig. It’s been a win-win.” — Nick Mezzina, Misconduct Tavern

Fair Food has connected us to thoughtful and skilled producers like Sue Miller of Birchrun Hills Farm, who not only provides great products but takes time to speak with students, collaborate on events, host interns and visits to the farm, and conduct guest lectures and public programs.

b.good The Promenade at Sagemore, 500 Rt. 73 S., Marlton, N.J.

The Fair Food Farmstand was the first retailer to start carrying my product, which is very validating and reassuring for an upstart food business. ... When representatives of MOM's Organic Market were in town looking for local goods to feature in their new store in Bryn Mawr before it opened, [Fair Food] fully endorsed my products and MOM's now carries them.” — Jan Cho, Good Enough For Kids

My biggest value derived from my now longterm relationship with Fair Food has been the insights they have provided through their farm tours.

Local Food guide phil adelp hia 20 1 4 -2 0 15

Glossary When we talk about fair food, we mean ... Artisan: Food produced by non-industrial methods. Artisan producers respect the raw materials with which they work, know where these materials come from and understand their unique characteristics. They have mastered their craft and have a historical, experiential, intuitive and scientific understanding of it.

Foodshed: Similar in concept to a watershed, a foodshed outlines the flow of food feeding a particular area.

Biodiversity: The presence of genetic diversity or variety among plants and/or animals in an ecosystem. Greater biodiversity within an agricultural area generally leads to healthier soil and improved resilience to diseases and pests. In contrast, monoculture is a lack of genetic diversity in an agricultural area.

GMO-Free/non-GMO: The vast majority of processed foods in the US contain genetically modified organisms (GMOs), whose DNA has been manipulated in a laboratory using genetic engineering. GMO-free products have no genetically engineered ingredients. Certified organic products must be GMO-free. The nonGMO claim is unregulated, but some products are verified by a third party, like the Non-GMO Project.

Buying Clubs: Members order food for periodic delivery, typically once a week. Unlike CSAs, buying clubs operate on a “pay-as-you-go” basis, allowing members to order as much or as little food as they want each week. Certified Organic: In the United States, all certified organic fresh or processed foods must be produced according to the national organic standards and certified by a USDA-accredited inspection agency. Organic farmers must use only approved materials that will not harm humans, animals or soil life. Community Supported Agriculture (CSA): A form of direct marketing in which consumers pay for a share of a farm’s harvest at the beginning of the growing season and subsequently receive goods from that farm throughout the season. Consumers share in the risks and benefits inherent to agriculture while providing economic security to the farmers. Cultured/Fermented: Foods that have been broken down into simpler forms by yeasts, bacteria or fungi. Fermented foods generally enhance digestive processes and have a longer shelf-life than non-fermented foods. Examples include yogurt, kefir, miso, sauerkraut and kombucha. Fair Trade: Business practices that improve the terms of trade for farmers and artisans by increasing access to markets and ensuring just compensation for their products and labor. Farmstead Cheese: Cheeses made by the farmers who raise the animals that produce the milk. In other words, they are cheeses “from the farm.”





Free-Range/Free-Roaming: Animals raised in systems where they can move about in an unrestrained manner.

100 Percent Grass-Fed: Animals that have been raised entirely on grass and are fed no grain. This term applies specifically to ruminant animals, such as cows, that are meant to eat grass. Heirloom Varieties: Plants grown from seeds saved through several generations that have not been artificially genetically modified. Growing heirloom varieties is important to the preservation of genetic diversity in the food supply.

Pasture-Raised/Pastured: Animals that have never been confined to a feedlot or feeding floor, and have had access to pasture throughout their lives. Raw Milk: Milk that has not been pasteurized or homogenized. Raw Milk Cheese: Cheeses made from non-pasteurized milk. In the U.S., raw milk cheeses must be aged for at least 60 days. SNAP Incentive Programs: Programs designed to increase SNAP (formerly food stamps) recipients’ access to fresh, healthy food by matching SNAP spending with coupons to spend on additional food. Philadelphia has two key incentive programs: Double Dollars by Fair Food and Philly Food Bucks by The Food Trust and the Philadelphia Department of Public Health. Sustainable Agriculture: An holistic method of agricultural production and distribution that strives to be ecologically sound, economically viable, and socially responsible for present and future generations. Growing/production methods may include, but are not limited to, organic, IPM, chemical-free and responsible conventional.

Heritage Breeds: Traditional livestock that have not been altered by the demands of modern industrial agriculture. Heritage breed animals retain their historic characteristics, and are raised in a manner that more closely matches the animal’s natural behavior.

Transitional to Organic: On average, USDA organic certification takes about three years of applying certified methods to a farm’s growing or production operations. While working toward a certified organic status, many farms use the word “transitional” to define their farming practices.

Hormone & Antibiotic Free: Animals that have been raised without the use of growth hormones or subtherapeutic (routine) antibiotics.

Triple Bottom Line: A business model that gives equal weight to environmental sustainability, social justice and economic success.

Humane: Animal husbandry practices that raise animals under conditions that resemble their natural habitat, including ample outdoor space for movement, a healthy diet and limited-stress environment.

Vine ripened/Tree ripened: Fruit that has been allowed to ripen on the vine or tree. Within the industrial food system, fruit is often picked before it is ripe because it is better able to survive long distance travel. Tree or vine-ripened fruit has more fully developed natural sugars and so generally has better flavor.

Integrated Pest Management (IPM): A low-input approach to managing crops, ornamentals and orchards. IPM methods include, but are not limited to: using predatory insects to kill plant-eating pests, employing mechanical pest traps and using chemicals when necessary to avoid losing a crop. Considered a more sustainable alternative to the heavy use of pesticides.

Wild Foraged: Refers to the harvest of uncultivated plant-based foods that grow in the wild. Examples from this region include ramps, chicken of the woods mushrooms, fiddlehead ferns and paw paws.
