Burlap & Barrel sources unique, beautiful directly from small spice farms around the world for American cooks, and supports entrepreneurial spice farmers around the world who are challenging the commodity model of the spice trade.
What inspired you to make this project?:
As a former chef, I appreciate incredible ingredients grown by innovative, creative farmers, and as a former aid worker, I appreciate the impact that additional income can have on small farming communities around the world. Burlap & Barrel grew out of the need for faster, fairer supply chains to connect smallholder spice farmers around the world with cooks in the US who care about where and how their food is grown.
