  • 0

Over the past year, the Feast and Field team has traveled around the country to celebrate makers, farmers and growers who are transforming the food landscape in America. Here are some of the amazing products we’ve discovered on this journey — consider this your insider Feast and Field holiday shopping list.

Fat Head honey charcuterie

Charcuterie Board Honey Set from Fat Head Farms

We’re buzzing with love for this cool bee farm just outside of Omaha, Nebraska. We featured Fat Head Farm’s beekeepers Brian and Kathy Suchan in Issue No. 19, and we are enamored with all of their craft honey flavors and products, including a bourbon barrel-aged honey, creamed honey in chocolate ghost pepper and peanut butter varieties. This yummy set includes 12 ounces of hickory wood-smoked honey, 12 ounces of vanilla bean-infused honey and a honeycomb — all perfect additions to charcuterie boards and cheese plates. $45, at Fat Head Farms

Linz Meats prime rib

The Prime Rib Roast from Meats by Linz

The Feast and Field team covered Chicago’s Linz Meats in our Beef Issue, and we’re kind of obsessed with this 4th-generation, family-owned meat purveyor. Our go-to gift from Linz? The Prime Rib Roast. It’s boneless and easy to serve — perfect for the whole family this holiday season. The best part? This 6-7 lb. piece of meat is aged for 28+ days to give you the best in tenderness and taste. $210, at Meats By Linz

Bitter Housewife set

Cocktail Bitters from The Bitter Housewife

We covered The Bitter Housewife in our second issue, Craft Whiskey in Seattle, and we’re still raving about Portland-based founder Genevieve Brazelton, who created a line of bitters that, in her words, catered to her and her circle of “well-educated, food-savvy female friends who loved whiskey and wine.” Each of the cocktail bitters in this set has been carefully crafted from whole botanicals to blend perfectly in drinks. $98, at The Bitter Housewife

Quince and Apple - gift guide

Preserves Gift Set from The Quince and Apple Company

Ever since we met the adorable husband and wife team behind The Quince and Apple Company for our Jams and Preserves Issue, we’ve been hooked on products from their charming Madison, Wisconsin shop. We adore The Preserves Gift Collection, which features a selection of four artisan Quince and Apple preserves: Figs and Black Tea, Orange Marmalade with Lemons, Pear with Honey and Ginger, and Apples and Cranberry. The best part? Quince and Apple products are made with real cane sugar and have half the sugar of traditional preserves. $37.50, at The Quince and Apple Company

FRINJ Caturra

Good Land Organics’ Caturra Coffee from FRINJ Coffee

Coffee is one of our favorite daily essentials here at Feast and Field (see Issue No. 33), and we’re hooked on the amazing coffee products from FRINJ, a network of 70 California coffee farms located between the Central Coast and San Diego. We’re currently obsessed with the Caturra collection, produced by Good Land Organics — the first commercial coffee farm in the United States and the flagship coffee farm/headquarters of FRINJ. $50 for a 5-ounce bag, at FRINJ Coffee

Cherrystone clams

Grit-Free Clams from Cherrystone Aqua Farms

Family-owned since 1895, Cherrystone Aqua Farms is a global leader in the production and harvest of oysters and clams. While we focused on oysters in Issue No. 8, Cherrystone’s grit-free clams are a popular gift around the holiday season. The clams, which are available in littleneck and middleneck sizes, are some of the world’s best, thanks to the pristine Chesapeake Bay waters in which they are grown. Prices start at $64, at Cherrystone Aqua Farms

Purple Sage paprika

Sweet Smoked Paprika Seasoning from Purple Sage Farms

Family-owned Purple Sage Farms, which we covered in Issue No. 16 about herb farming in Idaho, specializes in growing a wide range of organic herbs, green and vegetables — up to 250 varieties— ranging from the familiar and traditional to the obscure and exotic. Purple Sage’s artisan crops, like this home-smoked paprika, are thoughtfully grown and proudly certified organic on the family farm just outside of Boise. Prices start at $5.25, at Purple Sage Farms

Smoking Goose sampler

Sausage Sampler Pack from Smoking Goose

Indianapolis’ Smoking Goose is known for its small-scale batches of smoked, cured and aged meats and was a featured business in our Sausage issue. Smoking Goose's uniquely delicious sausages are mostly pork-based, and all are made using traditional techniques like seam butchering, using natural casings and curing without compound nitrates. This Sampler Pack features three varieties of seasonally-rotating sausages: think Wild Fennel collected by hand in Calabria, Italy, and crowd-favorite "Kitchen Sink" links — plus collaborations with local breweries for beer bratwurst. Regularly $35 but now $28.45, at Smoking Goose

Alaskans Own coho box

Coho Seafood Box from Alaskans Own

Alaskans Own, a community supported fishery (CSF), sells and ships frozen wild Alaska seafood directly to customers across the nation. We love that this not-for-profit is committed to supporting small-scale fisheries and promoting healthy oceans to ensure salmon, halibut and sablefish can continue thriving (and surviving!) in Southeast Alaskan waters. Alaskans Own, which we featured in our Wild Salmon issue, purchases fish from local fisherman and local processors to ensure customers receive sustainably caught frozen seafood every single time. $325, at Alaskans Own
