Locavore's Vendor of the Month, June 2019
This month, we’re highlighting Stony Brook Wholehearted Foods as our Vendor of the Month. Based right here in Geneva, this award-winning company was born when co-founder, Greg Woodworth, learned that local farmers were struggling to find a way to re-purpose the seed waste that occurred from pre-cut squash products sold at Wegman’s. Realizing that the seeds could be used to make pepitas and squash seed oils, Greg then founded the company to do just that! Highly nutritious pepitas are brined and roasted squash seeds that are a delicious addition to soups & salads, granola & yogurt, or on their own as a crunchy snack. Stony Brook Sunflower oil is both a cooking oil and a finishing oil: in other words, you may cook with it at high temperatures, and you may use it cold as a condiment. The Butternut Squash Seed and Pumpkin Seed Oils are finishing oils only, best used as condiments for dishes!
Locavore celebrates the culinary bounty of the Finger Lakes ...and beyond.

If you haven't tried Stony Brook Wholehearted Foods' squash seed oils, you're missing out. Made right here in Geneva from pumpkin and butternut squash seeds, these delicious condiment oils are fabulous on roasted veggies, sandwiches and according to the Bon Appetit writer, even ice cream. The seeds are roasted before pressing them into oil, which enhances the flavor to a whole new level of deliciousness.
