After another cold, dark winter, so many of us are eager to get back outdoors. What better way to do that than with a delicious picnic featuring Community Foods producers? Together we create the food systems we want, and when you choose Community Foods products—signified by the purple tags in our stores—you’re choosing to support local, small-scale, inclusive, sustainable, and cooperative businesses.
Step into Spring with a Community Foods Picnic
Baker’s Field Flour and Bread
Pair the fresh spring air with fresh local bread on your picnic spread with Baker’s Field loaves. Baker’s Field works with local farmers to create a demand for quality grains, which strengthens our local grain economy. Their access to unique artisan grains allows Baker’s Field to freshly grind them into flour using stone mills, and then bake them into flavorful and distinctive loaves, perfect for your next sandwich or slice of toast.
Tree-Range® Chicken Salad
Small-scale, local, sustainable, inclusive
Craving a sustainable lunch? Look no further than a zippy chicken salad made with Tree-Range® Chicken. Tree-Range® chickens are raised under a canopy in a coop and paddock system that integrates perennial crops like hazelnuts and elderberries into the diets of the chickens. This style of poultry centered regenerative farming system is indigenous in origin and is a seasonal production system that protects the birds and improves environmental quality through a design that prioritizes soil building, biodiversity, and clean water. All of this translates to a higher-quality—and more delicious—bird.
Seward-Made Salads and Sweet Treats
Small-scale, local, cooperative
Don’t skip the sides! No picnic is complete without sides, salads, and treats. Bright flavors return this spring in the Deli Grab and Go case, like elote dip made with crunchy corn, roasted mild poblano peppers, and bright lime, or quinoa tabouli salad with juicy cherry tomatoes, cooling cucumber, and refreshing mint. Don’t forget to grab slices of pie, cookies, or brownies for a sweet Seward-made finish to your meal.
