Naturally bred for the chef’s table.
What makes these squash extra special is that their seed was naturally bred for a famous chef. Seven years ago, well-known chef, Dan Barber approached natural seed breeder, Michael Mazourek with the ask for a better squash. To our knowledge he did not tell Michael to make them adorable, but that’s what happened (thanks Michael!). Along with the farms that grow their seeds, Row 7 seed company is imagining a new future of food that starts with the seed in order to create a more delicious and nutritious meal.
Meet the Farm
Having farmed the same ranch for the last 50 years, Dave Nuss is a legacy farmer passing on the generations-old tradition to his sons. Most notable about Dave Nuss—he’s unequivocally open to the future of farming. Tim, Tyler and Derek are at the helm of the 5th generation of the family farm, bringing innovation to their father’s foundation.
Most of their contemporaries in size and legacy aren’t even considering the regenerative agricultural practices these farmers are implementing at scale. Pioneering in the sustainability space, the Nuss Family is fast becoming a thought leader for the industry. You can hear brothers, Tyler and Tim, speak about the changing industry and the multitude of benefits from regenerative agriculture on their podcast, The Modern Acre.
