Susie Rachele Is All Praises for Buttermilk Kitchen’s Vendors
As General Manager of Buttermilk Kitchen, Susie Rachele is also committed to supporting local farmers by stocking their pantry full of local, sustainable produce. The restaurant also strives to make sure they choose farmers with practices that share their beliefs on the humane treatment of animals. Here is part two of Buttermilk Kitchen’s esteemed vendors:
Springer Mountain Farms.Not only do they take measures to provide care for the chickens, they constantly look for ways to protect the environment, and invest in long-term livelihood of the farmers. SMF emulates the true meaning behind “100% All Natural,” far beyond that of any government guideline. They are the first poultry company in the world to be certified by the American Humane Association. They never use steroids, hormones, antibiotics, pesticides, and only feed their chickens a vegetarian diet.
Benton’s Country Hams.Many of BK’s patrons know that they have a special affinity for the deep smoky flavor of Benton’s bacon as it is often paired with their house-made pimento cheese. It’s the perfect combination of flavors! The family recipe has produced award-winning products, and BK is ecstatic to be using their bacon!
Treehouse Milk.BK is delighted to have found Treehouse Milk! Kate and Bess wanted provide Atlanta residents a place they can buy 100% handcrafted organic nut milks. Products you know you can trust! Their milks are vegan and soy free! Additionally, they do NOT pasteurize their goods because they already take steps to insure their milks are free of bacteria.
Banner Butter.Banner Butter works diligently to make small batched, cultured butter. BK has taken interest in what is naturally left behind, the freshest buttermilk! They start with high-fat cream from grass-fed, pasture raised cattle and conscientiously create the perfect butters focusing on quality and integrity of the process. BK exclusively uses BB’s buttermilk in our recipes.
