Shared Kitchen

Rich Isome from upstate NY sent me some great information on Nelson Farms development of a shared kitchen. Rich told me, “The guy who runs it, Dave Evans, is one of the most interesting folks I've ever met. Sort of a Ross Perot without the billions!”

They’ve teamed up with the local college, Morrisville State to help food entrepreneurs develop their products with crops produced on Nelson Farms. They already have over 300 products in production, with another 80 in experimentation. Several of their products are available nationally, including Currant C and Saratoga Salsa.

It’s a concept that others might want to look at as they develop culinary entrepreneurs.
