Our Urban Farm


Our Urban Farm


 

Zero miles.

How many caterers do you know with two city lots of urban farm space and two beehives? We're growing 141 different varities of 41 different crops 15 ft from our kitchen door. Our clients love that many of their menu items come from our farm, and that we can plan a menu based on what we'll be growing in a specific season. When Big Delicious Planet caters your event, you reap the benefits of our bountiful organic garden.
