The Wildfare Story

We Know Where We’re Going – Because We Know Where We’ve Been

June 1, 2021
Steeped in history and driven by a passion for authenticity, The Wildfare Story is a food story, an immigrant story, a story of trade routes, explorers and merchants. We are so particular about all of the ingredients in our “cooking pot” because we are informed and inspired by all of the people in the “melting pot.” Global crops, cross-cultural cuisine, inclusivity that celebrates diversity. These are legacies that deserve to be honored. Oh, yes…and a great ingredient takes everything to the next level! Which is why Wildfare is devoted to sourcing, curating and offering the highest quality ingredients from around the world to ultimately bring them to your table.

Before Wildfare was even a spark of an idea for our company, the basis of its founding emerged in simple but powerful ideals: respect, value and tradition. The ability of the earth (the terroir) to issue forth the most glorious produce, millennium after millennium. The skill and perseverance of the farmer to know the soil and tend the crop, seedling to harvest. The creativity and innovation of the makers and cooks to transform the bounty of each harvest for themselves and their communities. The ingenuity and business acumen of merchants who have shared with the world an amazing array of foodstuffs, while simultaneously setting trade routes, making barter policies and influencing global politics. All of these enterprises are rich with humanity, all of its joys and struggles.

It is a history as rich as the soil that delivers beautiful food year after year. Where there is growth, there is energy. Where there is community, there is purpose. Where there are people gathering to have a meal together, there is humanity. The Wildfare Story is a story of humanity – and really healthy, delectable food!

Wildfare offers exceptional food products that have roots in culinary traditions that date back more than 3000 years. It is not easy to locate and grow the best foodstuffs on the planet, but it is worth it. Our goods have their origins in ancient fields and ancestral groves. They are fed by nutrient rich soil and kissed by sunshine and sea air. They benefit from ages-old methods for planting, tending, and harvesting, as well as artisan wisdom for preserving and preparing. Throughout the millennia, the food culture and natural abundance issued forth from the Mediterranean region are known to be among the most diverse, healthy and unique in the world. That is the foundation of our offerings. However, we honor the spirit of the explorer, and so we continually broaden our search for excellence in product, practice and place. It’s a big, beautiful, delicious world! And our mission is to share the wildly irresistible fare we proudly procure with you.
