Fresh Local Tomatoes. MightVine has strong vines that twist and climb their way to the roof of our seven-acre greenhouse. Grown under pristine conditions with maximum ecological consideration, our tomatoes are picked fresh and to the market in hours, not weeks. Because of this unprecedented quickness, we are able to grow varieties chosen for flavor, not shipping.

Instead of importing cheese, the focus became crafting and curing Eurpoean-style specialty cheeses here in America’s Dairyland. Green County, Wisconsin was a natural home for the Roth Kase cheese factory. Roth Kase provides us with their delicious cheeses.
Costanza Farm is a family farm that has been around and run for nearly 40 years. Concentrating on a variety of vegetables that will span the entire (albeit short) Midwest growing season, the Costanzas have fields of cucumbers, squash, peppers, eggplant, pickles, tomatoes, cabbage, and tomatillos. To ensure the sale of the entire crop from season to season with minimal waste, Costanza sells strictly to Wholesale distributors throughout the harvest.
Straight from Farmer Jon: "Our mission is simple: to provide an environmentally-sustainable model of community composting and organic recycling for Chicago residents and business. We serve as a significant component in the local ecosystem—we are decomposers and energy regenerators."
Healthy Soil is an important partner to reach our objective of a zero waste cycle to serve Chicago with the smallest environmental footprint possible, with 100 percent wind + solar powered locations and our biodegradable, recyclable and now finally compostable operational waste. With compost our food-waste creates soil-food to grow food. Happiness all around!
