WHO WE ARE — Zone 7 is a farm fresh-distribution service that connects farmers and chefs. We pick up the highest quality ingredients from New Jersey and eastern Pennsylvania farms and deliver them weekly to restaurants, grocers and institutions.
ABOUT OUR NAME — Based in central New Jersey and named after our agricultural growing zone, Zone 7 works exclusively with the region’s best organic and sustainable farmers to offer fruit, berries, vegetables, mushrooms, eggs, honey, cheese, grain products and other farm-fresh food.
OUR MISSION — Our mission is to strengthen the local and regional food chain by enabling restaurants, grocers and institutions to buy from and support small and medium-sized sustainable farms. Zone 7’s role is to act as a direct link between farmers and chefs. We create a new and dependable outlet for farmers and offer a consistent and reliable source of locally grown products to chefs and grocers.
HOW IT WORKS — Operating 52 weeks a year, Zone 7 was founded in the spring of 2008 to satisfy the growing demand for local ingredients. Our system ensures a freshness nearly impossible to replicate on a larger scale. Each week we create a list of seasonally available ingredients from our farmers and drop this list into our customer’s e-mail box. By placing one order, customers have access to 70+ farms worth of local products within 48 hours of harvest.
THE ZONE 7 COMMUNITY — Zone 7 is dedicated to promoting our producers and buyers. Check out our farm profiles, lists of restaurants and grocers, as well as our Dinner on the Farm series and general events page.
OUR STORY — Our unique story was realized through a true passion and desire to make a difference in the way we look at food and the local economy. It’s a story that involves an inspiring community effort that continues to grow every day…which to put it simply, is the reason we love doing what we do.
