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 and organic 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 washing, chopping, shredding, and slicing.
Root Cellar Foods Owner, Managers and Staff are deeply connected to the local food system in Montana. We bring a wealth of experience in food production, processing, distribution, marketing and food writing. We are a passionate team dedicated to making it easier for businesses to serve fresh, locally grown food.
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.
