"I have to admit, this is the tartlet that drew me in when I first tasted Wendy’s tartlets. The crust is crispy and wholesome (maybe it’s because the germ and bran are included!), and the tart had an over all sweetness from the vegetables (but not too sweet). It felt more dainty than the rough and tumble bean and quinoa tart. I felt like I could serve it as an elegant side dish at a meal."

Interview & Review 3.20.2017


2017

Recent Interview about The Rogue Traders and Greyback Farm by Brooklyn based Heritage Radio Network. Recorded while we were doing The Good Food Mercantile in San Francisco.

"Caity and David interview Wendy Testu from The Rogue Traders (a farm-fresh frozen tartlet company) and Sue Sturman from Academie Opus Caseus (a cheese travel organization and cheese-making school). They discuss their enterprises and the value of the Good Food Mercantile community, emphasizing the community’s commitment to standards, to a way of looking at fresh, artisan food, and to each other as producers and experts of good food."


August 2017 Newswatch 12:

A nice little spot on the local news in Southern Oregon about The Rogue Traders, the tartlets, our pastured Rogue duck eggs and the Rogue Valley Growers Market.

YESSSS it’s been years since I’ve done open studios!


Back in the day it was raku sculpture, immersive installation work, video production, graffiti art & community engagement.  You name it I’ve probably done it.

I’m thrilled to be sharing Kim Austin’s studio; Austin Press this coming weekend in San Francisco: As you know my art form is now food & farming.
 
Tartlet Collections to be exact.

Eat them at the event or take some home for later.  We’ll have our three classic flavors for sale & a handful of our fourth flavor, the latest Muse Tartlet - roasted tomato & fromage blanc, from By George Creamery, with walnut pesto.

Kim’s work ranges from gorgeous letterpress & hand blended apothecary items; perfumes & candles to pretty little objets d'art.

Thank you for an amazing 2016!

So thankful for my parents, extended family, my dear friends, Greyback Farm & our customers, we couldn't have made it here without you! 😘

We've accomplished so much; 

We started our online store, & what started as a small market test became a sold out affair of our holiday gift boxes, we were accepted into THE GOOD FOOD MERCHANTS GUILD, we got into our first store in San Francisco, and created our second tartlet flavor; the vegan gluten free bean tartlet.

We're on a roll and it's all thanks to all of you! 🙏🏾 We love & appreciate all of you so much!!!

Our CSA (community supported agriculture) bi-monthly tartlet boxes, will be sold on line soon. Sign up now to be in the know:

#BeRogue in this new year!

Cheers,

Wendy
