We are a small BIPOC owned and operated company based in East Cleveland, OH. We strive to make delicious, healthy food; support local sustainable agriculture; and to minimize the environmental impact of doing so. Wake Robin processes more than 30,000 pounds of local vegetables from family farms each year, and remains committed to responsibly growing food for our communities for a more sustainable local food system. Our long term solution is to model a scalable solution by expanding local farming opportunities empowering people to start farming in their own back yard.
We believe high quality comes from the care and attention to detail that we put into each jar, so we make our products in small batches using the traditional preservation method of lacto-fermentation. We work closely with family farms to help strengthen our regional economy. We are actively involved in the local food economy and purchase the vast majority of our vegetables and other service inputs locally.
We tread lightly on the earth. To minimize our environmental footprint we strive to be a near-zero waste company. We source 90% of our vegetables from Northeast Ohio, reducing fossil-fuel use for transport. We reuse or recycle all of our waste paper, unwaxed cardboard, and metal; and all vegetable waste goes to compost. Our products are packaged in reusable glass jars. We hope that you can reuse your jar for your own kitchen storage needs, but, if not, you can return your Wake Robin jars to Ohio City Provisions or to our production facility at the Hildebrandt Building. Contact us and we’ll let you know when we will be available to take them.
We are glad to be part of a community that is conscious of the importance of eating healthy, supporting local farmers, strengthening our region’s food security, and minimizing environmental impacts.
