A major theme of this Market is to “feed the soul as much as the body.” They challenge conventional thinking, introduce new ideas, and foster positive change. Their quest is to change mindsets, institutions, and structures that relate to health and food, so that we put an end to problems in healthy living that have eluded leaders and community improvement programs.
Michael and Vandy Passmore head up this freshwater, sustainable fish ranch in Slough House. They started by selling live fish at Northern California farmers’ markets, and their quality and service quickly made them a premium purveyor for top restaurants and Michelin-starred chefs throughout the state and the country. We always try to put as much care and thought into our preparations of their sturgeon, catfish, trout, and caviar as they do in the raising of these beautiful fish.
Heluka® is derived from the Native American language meaning “full of sun.” Their pork is given that name because every pig on our Heluka® farms is FREE to go outside at will to enjoy the fresh air and sunshine! Heluka® pork was developed with two things in mind: the welfare of our pigs and the palate of our consumers. To satisfy both, they have developed their own exclusive Heluka® production model and breed. This system ensures that our pigs are raised with compassion, and that your dining experience will be exceptional, consistent, wholesome, and safe for your family.
