chefs recognize that quality produce creates quality
dishes and we think the smartest ones are the chefs who
are buying their produce locally and cooking seasonally.
Restaurants currently featuring One Straw Farm Food Alliance
produce on their menus:
The Cameleon Cafe
Gertrude’s at the BMA
The Black Olive - Fells Point
Woodberry Kitchen - Clipper Mill
One Straw Farm also supplies vegetable to Bon Appetit,
the catering company for Goucher College. This is the
first in our new "farm-to-college program." Goucher
joins a host of colleges and universities such as Harvard
and Stanford now serving produce in their cafeterias.

Here is a letter from Martha Lucius,
owner of Boheme Cafe. Located on Pratt Street
I received your email address from Bill Rush this past
week, he thought we could touch base. Due in part to
your article on One Straw Farms' Organics, Boheme Cafe
has just started a partnership with One Straw Farm.
We recognize that organics do matter. We have been
wanting to serve organic produce, and we have been
building an interest within our store, so mid-July
Joan said, "here, take these and start creating" as
she handed a basket of gorgious zucchini, eggplant,
basil, purple, yellow and green peppers and sweet cherry
tomatoes. So, our "EAT GOOD FOOD" campaign
is born.... Luke (our manager) and I are creating great
specials from our kitchen. On Tuesday we had a babaganouj
and black bean hummus wrap, and today we had a grilled
veggie kabob with a thai peanut sauce on the side.
The kabob was so well received that one of our customers
came back, walked right behind the front line, into
the kitchen and hugged me! He was so delighted by the
taste, the extra great taste of organics!
I would bet that we are the only Cafe in B'more that
is daring to serve organic produce. Certainly restaurants
do, but a cafe, that is a bit off the cafe mission. We
now intend to run the EAT GOOD FOOD campaign all the
way through Joan's season. Thought you might enjoy knowing.
