About this event

Gordon Sacks started 9 Miles East Farm to make it easy for busy people to enjoy healthy local food. The 29 acre vegetable farm and on-farm commercial kitchen serve nearly 200 companies in New York and Massachusetts through a workplace wellness model. The farm also provides subscription meal delivery to hundreds of households, a workplace catering service, and www.pizzadelivery.farm 

Weekly meal plans from 9 Miles East Farm make it easy for busy modern households to enjoy healthy food. Several meal formats are available to suit dietary preferences, including vegetarian, gluten-free, and Paleo nutritional profiles. Delivery radius includes the entire Capital Region (Saratoga Springs, Troy, Delmar, Albany, Schenectady and Queensbury, plus points in between) and the Greater Boston Area.

Unlike meal kits, their experienced chefs do the cooking for you with high-quality local and organic ingredients. No assembly (or dishes) required. Your cooler will be delivered to your home on the same day and at approximately the same time each week. You don't need to be home when they deliver. Packaging is reusable and recyclable. 

Before starting 9 Miles East Farm, Sacks was Director of Marketing for Paradigm Capital Management. He has a BA from Vassar College.
