Sustainability, Traceability, and Transparency
What sets us apart in the caviar industry is that our farm is completely sustainable in its nature and operation. Our infinity loop model, takes our natural water sources from our aquifers on property to supply our tanks and ponds. After it filters through our farm, our nutrient rich water goes to our neighbors to irrigate their fields for their cattle, later seeping back into the ground to replenish our mineral rich aquifers. “It is a perfect loop - what we take out we put back.” DKCQ Our model has been touted by US Fish and wildlife department and used as an example for sustainable/ optimal farming partnerships.
With the proliferation of caviar farms throughout the world, Deborah has traveled the globe selecting and making caviar with the highest caliber caviar farms throughout North America, Asia, Europe and the Middle East. Aware that farming conditions are critical to the ultimate quality of caviar, she is meticulous about the condition of water, feed and the overall environment in which the fish are raised. She is well known for climbing in the tanks to personally taste each and every egg before harvest. Her relentless energy and insistence on quality has made her one of the most respected and well-known leaders in the caviar industry.
