Hi! We are Pete and Jess, Husband and Wife team, Dad and Mom, Chef and Gardener, Drummer and Photographer, and owners of Heirloom MKE.
We want to offer our community from-scratch eats while supporting local farms and purveyors. Our goal is to create a space around delicious food that will allow our community to come together and grow with one another.
Grow with us.
What's with our name? There is a whole lotta reasoning behind our name.
Heirloom, first came about when I, (Jess speaking), thought about my parents and their love for gardening. (Shout out to my Mom and Dad, Gail and Bernie!) Every year, my parents planted their own heirloom seeds, from the previous year, for their garden. They had all sorts of varieties of tomatoes, peppers, and so on. They also planted extra seeds to share plants with family, friends, and neighbors. There is so much meaning and love behind it all that it was a perfect fit, Heirloom Mke became our name.
Pete and I are both fortunate to come from loving families that have taught us some great values from loving nature, growing our own food, to cooking delicious meals. The name, Heirloom, does not end there, it signifies our personal and business values, morals, and beliefs.
