There are 3 working out of the Patchen Avenue storefront! In addition to Bread Love’s bakery, there is a butcher and a CSA (locally sourced small batch items, fruits & veggie bagged up for delivery or pickup) all in one place. Think of it like a Co-Op… sharing resources and making the dream work.
Arcadian Pastures brought a full-service butcher back to Bed Stuy Brooklyn! Currently there are 2 locations upstate, Gloversville and the other in Malta. Arcadian Pastures is a small family-run heritage breed farm in Schoharie County, NY. The animals are raised in an open & natural, stress-free environment. AP’s belief is that animals raised outdoors, on high quality pasture, and are treated with respect, produce the most nutritionally-dense and best tasting meats. “All of our meats are hormone and antibiotic free and our animals are never exposed to herbicides or pesticides, producing clean, fresh, lean meats that you can be confident about serving to your family.”
