Pasta & Sauces that Highlight Tradition & Sustainability

  

We create our pastas and sauces by blending sustainable agriculture with Italian traditions. We believe in delicious, nutritious pasta that not only will transport you to Italy but also support small regenerative farmers. In Italy, pasta is eaten at least once a day and with our farm to table pastas now you can too!

Traditional Pasta is made from 100% 00 flour. This is flour that has been ground removing 55% of the bran and germ from the original wheat berry. To preserve the flavor and nutrient value of the grain we decided to make our pastas with signature blends of heritage and ancient 00 & whole wheat grains. This means our pastas are healthier and have higher nutrient content than standard pastas as well as being incredibly flavorful.

 Making artisan pastas with 100% sustainable & heritage grains is our promise. Our two millers are Elmore Mountain Bread in Morrisville, VT and Barton Springs Mill in Austin, TX.

 

Highlighting the fresh flavor and uniqueness of each grain is our first priority. We love working with fresh milled flours to provide the highest quality in every step of our pastas.

 We grow as many of our veggies as we can on our farm in Lyndonville, VT, but we can not grow it all. For anything we don't grow we support other Northeast Kingdom small farmers practicing regenerative farming techniques. 

Our eggs always come from Vermont, pasture raised, and organic grain fed chickens. We look for that bright orange, nutrient filled, yolk. We mainly use Black Dirt Farms delicious eggs as well as our own laying flock of 60 heritage breeds chickens.

Sweet Rowen Farmstead in Albany, VT produces sweet grass fed milk that we use for our sauces. We also love their farmers cheese for our fillings. Maple Brook Farm creates delicious ricotta and mozzarella that we proudly use. We love featuring other cheese makers like Mansfield Creamery, Jasper Hill, and others! 

 

 Our packaging is also Certified Compostable by the Biodegradable Products Institute thanks to Good Start Packaging. It is made from corn and can be composted in approx 120 days in a commercial composting system. Please keep it out of the landfill*
