From Humble Beginings
We were the Brown’s of Brooklyn, but for those of you that do not know our story . . .we moved here after Omar (Farmer Brown/ Smoothie Mon) got laid off. So we really took lemons and made lemonade, and to that we added carrots, apples, ginger and bananas and kale and made smoothies. LOL. We work hard and are visionaries. Both our families are from Jamaica, as a matter of fact Omar was born there. Our food pays tribute to our grandmothers and mothers who love fi cook!!! Our food is best described as Caribbean Vegan Cuisine.
As you all may or may not know, before I became a self-proclaimed chef, I was and still am a filmmaker. So the fact that Hollywood glitz and glam did not appeal to me is no surprise, I am a lady who is rooted in family and community. I prefer to talk to one of my fabulous customers about seasonings and recipes than to be on a red carpet any day.
Locally Sourced & Organic Food
We are constantly buying and helping local businesses and organic farmers, with locally sourced produce.
Our Love for Food
Our philosophy on food is simple, we do not like processed foods and avoid them. We use organic as much as we can and are always trying to get more organic foods as well as local food. Currently we use organic tofu, wheat, corn, carrots because they are often genetically modified and we say no to GMOs! We try not to fry stuff and we use food that looks like food and fresh ingredients that take a million hours to prep because they taste better, so we do it the right way.
We cook what looks fresh when we go shopping or what is on sale, or what seems good for the unpredictable Florida weather. Simply put, our menu is evolving as we see what our customers most enjoy.
