You Should Know Where Your Food Comes From
Especially your seafood. We find the SOURCE of all our seafood before we buy it. It’s important to Stew to know not only where it’s coming from, but who’s bringing it in for us! Family farms and fishermen share many of the same values as the Leonard family – freshness, fair pricing, and sustainability. Our friends at East Coast Seafood asked our long-line swordfish fisherman to introduce himself to you! Check out this video message he sent from his family’s fishing business on the coast of Brazil where they’re catching BEAUTIFUL, wild swordfish this time of year for us.
