Discover Our History


We believe in the power of eating locally. We know that current, mass food production cycles and systems are not sustainable and are costing us and our planet dearly. Since beginning our own journey of pursuing sustainable food solutions in 1983, we have chosen a better way, a healthier way, a more sustainable way. Over the past 15 years we have become passionate about giving you that opportunity as well. With these passions in mind we created Desert Lake Gardens and, more recently, Mill Street Café.



Desert Lake Gardens is a producer and supplier of local foods. We deliver fresh, locally grown and healthy food to your door. Free. Here on our website you can shop, place your order, ask us your questions, and begin moving you and your family towards a healthy, sustainable lifestyle. Every product you see on our site is either grown and produced locally or, if we can’t source it locally, it is carefully selected from organic growers and suppliers. If we wouldn’t feed it to our children we certainly won’t feed it to yours.



Our mission is to produce and supply healthy, nourishing food in such a way as to minimize adverse environmental impact. We are accomplishing that by producing and supplying foods that have not been exposed to synthetic fertilizers or pesticides. Such practices minimize environmental contamination and conserve valuable topsoil. We refuse to produce or supply genetically modified crops (GMO’s). We use reusable and recyclable package whenever physically possible.



We understand that making the choice to begin to eat local food can seem daunting. But it needn’t be. By utilizing our website and delivery service you can make that choice. The choice to eat local food. The choice to give this earth a chance to sustain you in years to come. The choice to eat well and live longer. The choice to keep your money in your local economy. Thank you for making this choice. We know you’ll be glad you did.
