Local Roots NYC is a sustainable farm-to-table service who provides farm-fresh organic food to New York City residents. Customers can order online and pick either a one-time order or sign-up for a weekly subscription and add-on options and then either pick it up at a central location or get it delivered to their home.
The company works with local NYC area farmers who are beyond organic, use regenerative farming practices that protect soil, water, and surrounding ecosystems and provide humane care to their animals who are able to roam and live a hormone- and antibiotic free life.
By choosing a sustainable and local farm-to-table service, clients of Local Roots NYC participate in sustainable living practices by buying food with minimal packaging providing less waste, reducing carbon footprint due to short mileage for food transport, and providing family farms the long-term commitment they need to invest in regenerative methods.The food is harvested at peak-flavor just hours before delivery ensuring the freshest products with maximal nutritional value. The concept is similar to a NYC CSA share or farmer’s market delivery service but with more product options to choose from. Local Roots NYC also provides its customers with weekly recipes according to the weekly produce and seasonal products that the clients are getting.
Local Roots NYC Founder and Director Wen-Jay Ying has worked in the field of agriculture and sustainability for many years before starting Local Roots NYC at the age of 26. She was awarded Entrepreneur of the Year by Mayor Bloomberg for neighborhood development through her work at Local Roots NYC.
We were honored to be invited to interview Wen-Jay Ying and learn from her about the Local Roots NYC program and services, sustainable agriculture and sustainable living.
