We are committed to sustainability and an attention to detail that honors the people behind the products we use. We believe in spending our food dollars locally whenever possible and working with local farmers, producers and suppliers in Durham, the Triangle and greater South including Funny Girl Farm, Open Door Farm, Kalawi Farms, Pee Dee Orchard, Wild Scallions Farm, Ever Laughter Farm, Blue Merle Farm, Quarry Dog Farm, Deal Orchard, Levering Orchard, Waterdog Farms, Lil Farm, Maple Spring Gardens, Bluebird Meadows, Harland’s Creek Farm, Southwind Produce, SEEDS, Slingshot Coffee Company, Resistor Brews, Brothers Vigalys, Latta’s Egg Ranch, Boxcarr Handmade Cheese, Homeland Creamery, Maple View Farm, Woodfruit, Orchid Island Juice Company, Eastern Carolina Organics, and Farmer Foodshare.
We are excited to work with Carrboro Coffee Roasters not just for the quality of their coffee and training support, but also their commitment to direct sourcing. As a local business we want to be conscious of the amount of waste we’re leaving behind, so we’re working in partnership with Compost Now to divert our food waste to be commercially composted, and to make sure that all of the the packaging and products sold out of our shop are either compostable or recyclable.
Part of sustainability, for us, is about quality of life for our employees. We are a Durham Living Wage Project Certified Employer, meaning that although we are a very new business, we are committed to paying all of our employees a living wage and offering paid time off. And as we continue to grow our business we’re committed to growing the benefits we offer to employees as well.
