"I have had the pleasure of working with Dole & Bailey's NEFF program since its inception. Working closely with NEFF buyers helps me connect our menu proteins to their sources. Having locally sourced and responsibly raised ingredients on my menu not only satisfies our customers but also contributes to the agricultural diversity of our region. What we do at Black Trumpet makes a very small dent, but NEFF and Dole & Bailey are making huge strides toward a sustainable local food system."

"The NEFF program provides our large, high volume luxury property with multiple food and beverage outlets the opportunity to work easily and with confidence with small family owned local farms.
The program has allowed me to add wonderful high quality products with consistent availability which is a necessity when designing recipes and menu items for large production.
Dole & Bailey as the FOOD HUB speaks my language as a chef and has made the procurement process much easier for both myself and the farmers I support. They really understand my needs and the needs of the family farms so we can work together doing what we do best, raising incredible local foods and cooking delicious meals."

“I am a believer in supporting the small family owned farms and appreciate the initiatives of Northeast Family Farms and the sustainability that they encourage. The quality of their products speaks for themselves and through my experience, I have found that they remain consistent over time.”

"Through our partnership with Dole & Bailey and NEFF, Fleishers continues its mission of connecting our customers to farms and farmers in our region who raise their animals on pasture. We know that in working with NEFF farms we are sourcing animals raised right and supporting our regional food system."
