Appetite comes with a conscience these days. The demand for delicious, fresh foods is accompanied by a commitment to reducing the distance between farm and fork. That’s where we come in. Root Cellar Foods turns locally grown vegetables into ingredients that large-scale consumers – from grocery stores to restaurants – can use to prepare meals for customers. Farmers do the planting, growing and harvesting. We do the chopping, shredding, and slicing. Our processed, packaged foods allow consumers to enjoy Montana-grown vegetables not only during the growing season, but all year long.
Root Cellar Foods Owner, Managers and Staff are deeply connected to the local food market. We bring a wealth of experience in food production, processing, distribution, marketing and food writing. Each of us is firmly rooted and widely networked in the area. We do business with local farms that grow everything from cabbage and carrots to spinach and squash. We work quickly to ensure freshness; vegetables are prepped and packaged within 24 to 72 hours of harvest.
Dan Moore, owner of Terra Greens located in Manhattan, MT is thrilled to begin his third season of farming. Moore runs the operation mostly solo, with some help from his family. Moore has long had an interest in growing food and started his own garden as an eight year old. In his adult life, Moore made his living maintaining golf courses, which he insists are “just a big fancy garden.” Moore made his mark by developing gardens to service the golf club’s restaurants. After twenty-eight years of building gardens for others, he decided to buy a piece of land and try out farming for himself.
