MALIBU FARM CAFE AT THE MALIBU PIER (LOS ANGELES)

malibufarm1

Swedish born Helene Henderson has a two-acre organic farm in Malibu. For years she has been organizing cooking classes and hosting farm dinners out of her home and recently she has openend Malibu Farm, a cafe & restaurant at the Malibu Pier in Los Angeles. Helene: “We are not a big corporation or funded by investors, we are a locally owned small business. Our food is super simply prepared, there are no secret ingredients. We order everything organic, but none of our local small farmers are certified, and our big suppliers, do not deliver 100% organic 100 % of the time. I naively thought when I opened the cafe, that organics were easy for restaurant to source – it is not. It is a daily and challenging struggle.However we are proud of the products that we serve and believe we put the best possible produce available on every dish served”
