Clyde’s Corner, Newest Compost Partner!
We’ve been reaching out to local restaurants and markets to see share about our Community Compost program, and we’re happy to announce that Clyde’s Corner, in Phoenix, is our latest new customer! Here are a few words from the owners at Clyde’s Corner:
Clyde’s Corner is a woodfired pizza restaurant located at the heart of Southern Oregon in the City of Phoenix. We work with top quality companies to source the ingredients used to create our sauces, dressings, sourdough, sausage and more. Though we are known by many for our food, we also feature biodynamic and organic wines from around the world, northwest beers and hand-crafted cocktails made with fresh squeezed ingredients.
The food scraps left over from our in-house preparations such as onion peels, lettuce, herb stalks and citrus peels are not usable at the restaurant. While our employees utilize some suitable scraps for chicken feed, the majority has been going to the landfill since our opening two years ago. We were very excited when Community Compost reached out to us about joining their composting program. Our food scraps are now being brought to local farms and turned into top grade soil for their crops. Clyde’s Corner is proud to work with companies like Community Compost to be a part of a more sustainable future!
Benefits All Around
It was a pleasure to meet the owners of this pizza paradise, a venue frequently enjoyed by the employees of Rogue Produce as a place to hang out with friends and family, and to enjoy great eats and drinks!
Not only is this restaurant a new member of Community Compost, but we also hope to provide this local restaurant with some of the bounty of our Farm Collective efforts.
Customers pay us to pick-up their food scraps because they care about our local farms and the smart management of our local resources. We support Clyde’s Corner by promoting their business, and (soon) by giving them great deals on local produce. We’d love it if you can show your support as well and head to their restaurant at 4495 S Pacific Hwy, in Phoenix. It’s a great environment with outdoor seating, great food, and a friendly staff.
You can also support our efforts by ordering local produce deliveries through our Online Farmers Market!
