WHAT’S ORGANIC FOOD?
At Bridges, our ingredients are genuine organic products grown by certified farmers. Organic food is real food – no harmful chemicals, artificial ingredients, or processing. All of our certified organic ingredients are free of antibiotics, growth hormones, synthetic pesticides, petroleum-based fertilizers, municipal sewage sludge and genetic engineering.
Our menu caters for vegetarians, vegans, carnivores, those on a gluten-free and keto diet and those on a special diet, all without sacrificing flavor.
IS ORGANIC FOOD BETTER?
Hundreds of studies have looked at the nutritional profiles of organic foods. One recent six-year study in the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry says that organic onions had about a 20% higher antioxidant content than conventionally grown onions. They’ve also found that organic fruits and vegetables have higher levels of protective antioxidants and those eating organic foods were less likely to develop diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease and reduced the risk of cancer by 25%. This is the food you can trust to build your health.
Does Organic Food Taste Better?
Our clients certainly think so! According to a 2014 study published in the British Journal of Nutrition, the higher antioxidant levels in organic produce enhance its organoleptic qualities — a.k.a. its aroma, taste, and even the sensation in your mouth as you’re eating it. Come by and prove it for yourself.
OUR ORGANIC MEATS: GRASS-FED BEEF
Conventional beef comes from cattle that are likely confined to a feedlot and fed corn or animal by-products.
Grass-fed beef comes from cows that roam as they eat grass. This makes it environmentally friendly and healthier too! Our grass-fed beef is naturally lower in fat and cholesterol than conventional grain-fed beef. It is higher in protein, antioxidants, heart-healthy Omega-3 fatty acids and CLA (a good fat). Plus it’s free of toxic additives like antibiotics, growth hormones, fillers and ammonia. We serve real beef at Bridges.
Just like cows, chickens’ were not meant to be caged and pumped full of chemicals. We choose the traditional Kienyeji chicken that is naturally-raised and is hormone and antibiotic-free meat from animals fed a 100% vegetarian diet. This not only makes it better-for-you, but it makes it better tasting chicken too.

FOOD FROM FARMERS WE KNOW
Many of our organic farmers have been with us since we started in 2006. We have visited their farms and can trace every ingredient back to the specific farmer. These farmers range from small scale farmers to organic certified youth and women farmer groups countrywide. When you eat at Bridges, you actively support organic farmers’ livelihood.
