About Straight to Your PlateStraight to Your Plate by Marcus Restaurant Group is a celebration of local flavor. Every month, our innovative chefs search out local purveyors who are doing an outstanding job in sourcing and supplying unique, interesting, and just plain tasty foods. Our collaborations with these partners are documented with online videos. You can sample our chef’s creations featuring ingredients from these purveyors at our downtown Milwaukee restaurants: Mason Street Grill, Milwaukee ChopHouse, and Kil@wat. We invite you to join us in this ongoing culinary adventure.
Just The Facts
Long admired for its distinct flavor, kale is a popular “super food” that has been harvested for thousands of years. A close relative of cabbage, this family of leafy greens is full of antioxidants and other key nutrients, making it a staple in healthy recipes. The folks at Gitto Farm are cultivating and supplying the curly variety, a common ingredient in a diverse array of dishes.
All Hale Curly Kale
There is a certain charm inherent in homegrown ingredients that you can’t find in a can on a supermarket shelf. It is the kind of quality you find in the fresh produce at Gitto Farm n Kitchen, a
self-sufficient property founded by a couple who picked up the passion for farming and never looked back. The family is proudly sharing their local roots, supplying a crop of their curly-leaf kale
to be used in creative dishes at our signature Marcus restaurants.
Years of Farming
After 20 years, Greg Gitto decided he wanted to do something different. He and his wife, Carol, wanted to farm. Neither Greg nor Carol had any farming experience. They learned by doing, first on other people’s farms. They started dairy farming in 2000 and four years later started raising vegetables.
Guaranteed by the Gittos
Gitto Farm N Kitchen is committed to the highest quality product. If you are not satisfied with your fresh produce, grass fed ground beef, processed vegetables, tortillas, or honey, just let them know and they will make sure you are 100% satisfied. The Gittos appreciate the support of their family business. The Gittos share that, “The value of working together with your children is such a blessing that we would not be able to enjoy without our customer.”
Gittos Work on the Farm
Gitto Farm N Kitchen is entirely run by the Gitto family. Today, eight of the ten Gitto children work and live on the farm while being homeschooled. Two of the family’s older sons are married now, but still help out on the farm along with their wives. Gramma Gitto even lends a hand by selling produce at the Waukesha Farmers Market.
