Project Information and Goals

      The Seed to Kitchen Collaborative connects plant breeders focused on organic systems to Wisconsin farmers and chefs, to create delicious, well-adapted vegetable varieties for local organic production. This collaboration presents a unique opportunity to focus on vegetable variety characteristics important to local food systems, such as flavor, fresh-market quality and agronomic performance on smaller-scale diversified farms.

 

Goals of the project

  • Promote informal collaborations between breeders, farmers and chefs to improve selection for flavor and direct market quality
  • Evaluate new and soon-to-be-released varieties for culinary quality with chefs
  • Evaluate varieties for real-world performance with commercial farmers and gardeners
  • Develop better methods of evaluating and selecting for flavor and culinary quality
