News & Updates From the Farm
Recently on the ICE blog, we talked about our new collaboration with restaurant L'Appart, were we are planting and helping maintain a new outdoor aromatic herb garden on their terrace at Brookfield Place. L'Appart's menu is elegant and French, with many opportunities to showcase excellent fresh flavors paired with their other carefully chosen ingredients.
Farm.One recently appeared on Belgian TV show "Tastes of the World", featuring chef Nick Bril. ICE's Caitlin Raux guided Nick around our farm to taste the produce, and help Caitlin pick ingredients for a rooftop meal with friends in Brooklyn. I used to live in Belgium during high school, so it was very fun to have one of the country's best chefs visit us at ICE.
We welcomed the New York Jets players James Carpenter and Dakota Dozier to the farm during their visit to the Institute of Culinary Education last week. Carpenter has been with the Jets since 2015, and Dozier since 2014 but this was their first visit to a hydroponic farm.
It’s now a little over a year now since the beginning, and we’re now about to open our new farm in Tribeca. This is more than six months in the making, a huge undertaking by our small team, in addition to trying to build our existing business out of our farm at ICE. We can’t wait to share this new space with you all. In addition to it being an exciting central location, we’re working in partnership with one of the best restaurants in the city, if not the world.
