Since 2003 Artisan Made-Northeast has been digging. Perhaps somewhat like an archeological excavation but with food as the end point, we’ve been digging beneath the surface to discover one-of-a-kind, flavorful foods that we think express the “terroir” of our region, the Northeastern US.
The Northeast has provided us with an entrance point to the artisan food movement that has been sweeping through America – and we have found world class products, made right here, to share with you.
Using the European Artisan Craft Guilds as a reference, we think of artisan foods as made using traditional methods and a high degree of skill, typically handcrafted, with no artificial ingredients – nutritional, high value foods made in small volume batches to ensure the foods’ integrity, quality and unique flavor. These are foods made by skilled artisans and connected to their place of origin.
As our business has grown we’ve attracted interest from consumers and the trade from all over the US. This coupled with the fact that we’ve lived in the Midwest and West Coast has awakened our interest in artisan foods being produced in other regions in the US.
So, we are branching out looking to expand our special collection of artisan foods to include the whole US. The new name then, Artisan Made America, captures the breadth of our reach. We so look forward to sharing our new artisan food discoveries with you as we continue to dig, unearthing incredible food experiences from the richness and bounty of our beautiful land.
