Welcome to Custom Food Lab.

First and foremost we are a collective of people (artists, designers, researchers, growers + activists) who are passionate about food and the future – where food comes from, how it’s grown, it’s potential to tell a story, to connect people to each other, to nature, to heritage, to discover long lost sustainable practices, to reimagine a food system outside of capitalism.

We operate through growing, cooking and sharing food, developing research and artistic projects which explore, expand, dream and share knowledge.

We make food.

We make work about food.

We grow food.

We write about food.
