All salmon is not created equal
BriarPatch sources Pacific King Chinook Salmon from the waters of Clayoquot Sound on the west coast of Canada’s Vancouver Island. We buy from Creative Salmon, the first salmon farming company in North America to achieve organic certification committed to sustainable practices from “egg to plate.” Try it tonight!
Organic & Delicious.
We support Fair Trade and Certified Organic producers and work closely with local farmers to plan crop production and to help ensure their financial stability. We’re building a delicious food movement, one bite at a time!
Join for the Perks,
Stay for the Purpose.
Owner and Volunteer Discounts, Voting Rights, e-Receipts and Patronage Dividends – what’s not to like? Plus, our owners get that warm, fuzzy feeling that comes from belonging to a business that does good things.
