Through years of producing fresh pasta, we know that nothing else can compare, especially when it is made with the highest quality and freshest ingredients possible. Clario Farms artisan pasta uses the premium and organic select flours – durum, semolina, organic, and when possible, Wisconsin grown. Then we use the freshest eggs laid by true free-range chickens who in addition to foraging a wide spectrum of nutrition on the pastures, are fed the highest quality organic feed. There truly is nothing like farmstead eggs, and we think they are the key factor in the creation of these superior foods.
Next – we introduce things like fresh herbs, garlic and vegetables from Clario Farms or organic producers into the mix. These are minimally processed, then pureed and blended into the pasta dough. The pasta is cut and packaged by hand, and popped into our deep freezer to lock in the freshness. We are always coming up with creative new varieties that are available exclusively at our storefront in Sturgeon Bay, WI.
Not only do you get minimally processed fresh pasta, but our methods mean that you can have fresh pasta whenever you like in a matter of minutes! All you need to do is fill a large pasta pot with water and bring it to a boil. Then, drop the frozen pasta directly into the boiling water, stir the pasta a little bit, and it will be ready in a minute or two. We call that Fast Food for Foodies!
Sauces and Pesto
Clario has been making fresh marinara for sale at farmers markets for years, and through testing and development we have been able to bring those recipes into a canning process that allows us to offer that same great fresh flavor in a jar. Nonna’s Classic Marinara offers that garden fresh essence with a red pepper kick that offers a hint of arabiatta punch. Oma’s homemade Marinara give you that same fresh recipe but without the pepper..
Our pesto varieties follow the growing season and the ebb and flow of our garden. Like our pasta, we make them in small batches and quick freeze them to ensure both freshness and convenience without the need for preservatives or additives.
Occasionally you may find tapenade and Claire’s Hummus in the coolers at our store, in addition to other offerings by like-minded producers. We are always trying new things and striving to explore and expand our products and invite our customers to join us as we explore new ideas.
