Locally-Owned
We’re Zone 7 – a New Jersey-based, 100% local farm fresh food distributor. We deliver daily to restaurants, grocers, schools and more and source only the best, highest quality ingredients from regional farms 52 weeks a year. Our goal is to keep the connection alive between farmer and customer. We work with 120+ sustainable farms and 300+ restaurants, schools, grocers, and more to make this a reality. We’re leading the way in promoting our farms and customers while changing the way people see the local food economy. We’re Zone 7, and we bring the farm.

Zone 7 was founded on strong relationships not only with farms, but also with customers. We’ve had to learn the ins and outs of distribution, and we couldn’t have done it without our customers’ understanding along the way. 

In 2008, we started with 10 farms and picked up and delivered produce all in the same day. Today, we’re working with over 120 farms and have devised a distribution system that effectively works for both the farmer and the customer.

What allows it to work? Our system requires great growers that consistently provide the highest quality produce and customers that truly care about great local food.

We always try to keep things as easy as possible with one goal in mind: keeping the connection alive between farmer and customer.
