Farm and Vendor Spotlight - Part One
Using the highest quality ingredients, Salt Wharf's menu changes seasonally to reflect the best of the season's produce and seafood. By working directly with local fishermen and farmers, Salt Wharf is able to offer a unique menu highlighting Chef Chris Pierce's talents. We are excited to spotlight some of the local farms and vendors that make the Salt Wharf menus so special.
Located in Washington, Maine, Dogpatch Farm specializes in raising Mulefoot Hogs - an American heritage breed that produces darker, well marbled meat that is full of flavor. For them, the passion for humanely raising pigs goes deeper than just providing people with great tasting, local food. "It’s about safer, healthier food, supporting the local economy and cutting the carbon footprint of our food supply."
