figure that if the whole is only as good as the sum of its
parts, let’s start with the freshest ingredients of
the highest quality. Here, we celebrate sustainability and
the organic operation by purchasing as many fresh, local,
and seasonal ingredients as we can get our hands on.
Focusing on items produced and procured locally not only supports
the local economy; it also creates a distinctive menu that
changes according to seasonal availability.
We use all-natural,
free-range, grass-fed beef and pasture-raised hogs from Bradds
Family Farm inClimax, NC. Our fresh milk, cream, and butter, all of which
are free of hormones and anitbiotics, are provided by Homeland
Creamery in Julian, NC. The goat cheese is from the Goat Lady
Dairy in Climax, NC. Our all-natural, free-range eggs come
from Eggman Eggs in PleasantGarden, NC. We receive much of
our local, organic produce from Faucett Farm in Browns Summit,
NC, as well as from other local farmers, letting the season
dictate available selections. Fresh herbs are often picked
from the beds right outside our door.
The cornerstone of the pizza, the dough, is prepared fresh
in-house using locally milled, organic flour from Lindley
Mills in Eli Whitney, NC. We use a slow fermentation process,
producing a dough with greater character and flavor development.
We also add just a touch of toasted wheat bran for a heartier,
more nutritious pizza. The result is artisan pizza dough that
is unique and nutritious and proudly supports whatever wholesome
toppings you select. Pizzas are baked in an oven that is solely
wood-burning – no gas or electricity – with an
average temperature of 700 degrees. We not only recycle cans and bottles, but we also use paper
products made from recycled materials.
Money received from
recycled cans is donated to a deserving charity or person
each month. Our recycled pizza boxes are stamped with an all-natural
vegetable ink. In an effort to save paper, our Come Pick Me
Up menu is available exclusively online. Though the effort of using local and organic products is slightly
greater, it seems to us to be the most appropriate and mindful
thing to do. Our aim is to provide the community with delicious,
healthful food; to support local, regional, and sustainable
agriculture; to be a good neighbor; to foster laughter, friendship,
and sharing; and to pass along the notion of the importance
of this simple philosophy.
