ABOUT THE OWNER

Sarah Hoffman, Owner and Operator

Hello! Here's a bit about me.

For the past decade I have gained invaluable experience working in the local food system. While I was earning my bachelor's degree at the University of Virginia (2010-2014), I started out waiting tables and learning to cook in various Charlottesville, VA restaurants. In 2016, I moved to the Richmond area, where I spent five seasons working at Broadfork Farm, learning under farmers Janet Aardema and Dan Gagnon. In my second year at Broadfork I managed the wood-fired sourdough bread bakery on the farm.

While living in Richmond, I spent more time cooking in restaurants and developing management skills. I teamed up with Kyle Anderberg at Lakeside's Tiny Acre, where I created a line of value added products with seasonal produce from the farm. In my most recent position, I worked with the talented crew at Tuckahoe Seafood, where I launched their bakery program.

I am endlessly grateful for the experiences that have shaped me and for the exciting new adventure ahead. Thanks for joining me!
