About 12 years ago I became interested in growing food for myself and my wife. I convinced our building manager in Bronxville, New York to let me install some raised beds in the outdoor common areas. After a few successful seasons growing vegetables, I saw that one of the crops that lingered into the Fall in the Northeast was chilies.
The Kitchen Garden is a 45-acre organic specialty vegetable farm located in Sunderland, Massachusetts. Tim Wilcox and Caroline Pam started the farm in 2006 after meeting at the Union Square Greenmarket in New York City in 2003, where they both worked as market managers.
Some say that it all started with Wayne’s preparation of French crepes for the international food fair in his 6th grade elementary school class: the launch of a well-established career as a saucier, baker, and menu designer in the culinary industry.
We started A&B American Style because we noticed that a lot of people around us were making terrible decisions with their food and we wanted to contribute products that would help people reconnect with their food.
