How Kingdom Direct Began
How it all began
Before 2020, you could find our bakery items and fresh cut flowers from Ardelia Farm at the Burlington Farmers' Market every Saturday.
Now, of course, times have changed, but our commitment to serving delicious food made with quality ingredients hasn't. Chef Thomas McCurdy quickly pivoted from a world of scones and in-person dinner parties to create a new method of keeping Vermonters well-fed: Kingdom Direct.
Chef Thomas McCurdy
What makes Kingdom Direct different
We use only the highest quality ingredients. In our bakery we use organic VT flour, organic oats, organic and fairly-traded sugar, chocolates, and coconut. We only cook with meat that has been raised outdoors on pasture either on our own farm or those of our neighbors whom we know and trust, such as chicken from Hillside Farm & beef and pork from Snug Valley Farm.
Every week, Thomas and his team craft elegant menu options to include weekly dinner parties for two or more, ready-made lunch options like fresh salads and soups, and the exquisite baked goods Ardelia Farm is known for throughout Vermont and nationwide, with his appearance (and subsequent victory!) on Chopped: Sweets.
Not only will you find ready-to-eat-or-reheat meals in our store, you also can shop for all your grocery and pantry essentials: pasture-raised meats, seasonal veggies, local cheese for all palates, eggs, nut butter, yogurt, gorgeous flowers during the spring and summer months, and more.
