Farmers are essential to our work. We couldn't make our delicious, homemade meals without farm-fresh ingredients. All our cooking is done from scratch. So, we need vine-ripened tomatoes for our pasta sauce, fresh-crop whole wheat for our pizza crusts, organic pinto beans for our burritos…you get the idea!

We work directly with many farmers. We've been partnering with some of the same farmers for over a decade – as we've grown, they've grown with us. Last year, our kitchens bought over 92 million pounds of organic foods, enough to support over 25,000 acres of organic farmland! Meet a few of our farmer heroes here:
