Strengthening Town to Table’s Roots
Longtime best friends Jack Levine and Temen Kim founded Town to Table in 2019, based just outside of Boston in Weymouth, Massachusetts. Their initial concept was to grow greens in shipping container farms to serve their philanthropic mission with the local chapter of the Boys and Girls Club of America.
But their desire grew to deliver more fresh, sustainably-grown produce into the community. So they sought out a different farming solution that could deliver high-quality and high-volume produce to solidify new retail partnerships and keep up with anticipated demand.
Jack and Temen partnered with AmplifiedAg in October 2022 to launch their new, modern container farm business for local basil production.
Town to Table is dominating the Boston market with their fresh and flavorful basil. It’s grown locally and delivered to grocery stores less than 48 hours after harvest, making it a customer favorite.
Earning Market Share with Smart Scaling
Just 10 months later, Town to Table expanded their farm production 40% and added a new processing facility to keep up with client demand and expand with new retail partnerships.
AmplifiedAg multi-container farm configurations are thoughtfully designed to support a meaningful production capacity, enabling farmers to grow and harvest on a consistent schedule.
Being able to keep up with retail demand and deliver a consistent quality product is what helped earn more shelf space in super markets and grow their consumer fan base.
Looking into 2024, Town to Table will scale yet again as they serve up more of their wicked good basil and expand their product offerings.
