Women Owned: A Few of Our Favorite Vendors

posted on March 6th, 2018 by Leslie Thomas

#InternationalWomensDay This day belongs to no specific country, organization, or race. It celebrates and advocates women everywhere. And for Bristol Farms it means celebrating all of our amazing customers who are inspirational, courageous, talented, creative, kind, and hard-working mothers, professionals, students, entrepreneurs and mentors. It also gives us a time to spotlight just a few of our favorite women-owned vendors who are also local to Southern California. From Natasha Case; the oh-so creative ice cream-loving guru behind Coolhaus, to Galit Laibow, Sarah Michelle Gellar, (and yes, Greg Fleishman - even if he is a guy); the founders of the revolutionary baking line, Foodstirs, to Lori; the imaginative creator of Lori’s Lemonade to the lovely ladies of Muddle + Wilde organic craft drink mixers, we’re stoked to honor them all. Natasha Case, Coolhaus Coolhaus co-founders Natasha Case and Freya Estreller started baking cookies, making ice cream, and combining… Read More

Bristol’s Own Virginia Peanuts

posted on April 18th, 2017 by Don Bandow

OUR PEANUTS. Our Virginia Peanuts are one of only four types of peanuts grown in the US. They represent only 15% of the total U.S. peanut production. While this variety of peanut is already considered the largest kernel size of all four types, we only source the “cream of the crop” for our delicacies, the very highest market grade available – Super Extra Large. Please note that the actual size of the Super Extra Large Peanut may vary from season to season, depending on the growing conditions of the seasonal crops. Less than 3% of all Virginia Peanuts grown meet the strict standards of this grade. And you can be assured we have sourced the finest and largest available. OUR PROCESS. All of our Virginia Peanuts are prepared by our Roastmaster in small batches, using the same time-honored recipes. A roasting process that cannot be duplicated by mass production methods. Our peanuts are hand-cooked in pure golden peanut oil with no additives or preservatives to alter the… Read More

Bristol Farms' Artisanal Bronze‑Died Pasta

posted on August 2nd, 2016 by Mike McMahon

Italy is home to the world’s best pasta artisans, so we traveled to Italy’s breathtaking Molise region to create our very own line of pastas. Made from Italian-grown durum wheat semolina, our pasta is crafted in the authentic, old-world Italian tradition. The difference between our pasta and others lies in the process: the dough is extruded slowly through bronze dies and then patiently air-dried on looms and wooden trays for up to 20 hours. The result is a rustic, flavorful pasta with a perfect al dente bite. Though it pairs beautifully with our new Marinara Sauce, it’s so delicious all you really need is a bit of butter or olive oil to enjoy. Stock up on our new Artisanal Pasta so you’ve always got an exceptional, family-friendly meal at the ready.   Read More

Jackie's Cookie Connection – Little Bites of Heaven

posted on May 12th, 2016 by Don Bandow

Crunchy, sweet, delectable, and perfect little bites of heaven are just a few ways to describe our love for Jackie's Cookie Connection "Cookie Babies". Pop open a can of these dollar coin-size cookies, and you'll quickly find a new addiction. We love them as a quick treat or snack, and they are the perfect size to top a scoop of ice cream for an indulgent little dessert. In 1979, Jackie, began with a humble goal. She wanted to make a great chocolate chip cookie that would satisfy her own sweet tooth. As it turned out, her passion yielded not merely a fantastic cookie but considerable opportunity. Before long, fans were flocking to 8 buzzing stores in New York City and Washington D.C. People would call out to her on the street, “hey, it’s the cookie lady”!  Then came the accolades from the likes of Family Circle Magazine and even The Girl Scouts of America. Fast forward to 2014.  Jackie’s Cookie Babies sprang to life right here in their very own bakery in West Los Angeles… Read More
