Supporting Our Local Food System, One Meal At A Time

September 20, 2013

The idea for Tomato Sherpa recipe kits came to Stacey, one evening in the kitchen, while blankly staring at random ingredients in the fridge, with a new baby and no energy to plan meals or time to shop at the farmer’s market for my family. 

Passionate about connecting people to where their food comes from, she started to explore how to engage our local community and make an impact on the local farm economies. All directions led me back to the kitchen.

The solution was local and simple. Build recipe kits with farm-fresh ingredients and step-by-step instructions to guide busy people or novice cooks through the dinner-making process.

Tomato Sherpa puts local sourcing at the center of our mission. 

With our Indiegogo campaign to scale our operations, we can help producers expand and make fresh, local ingredients more accessible and available. 

Together, we are bringing back the culture of cooking and community, while strengthening our local food system. So get cooking today!

    We're in the last 4 days of the campaign and could use any support, good vibes, and sharing with others that want to cook great meals and support the local food system at the same time!
