Mary Cleaver

The Cleaver Co

Mary Cleaver, one of the country’s foremost authorities on sustainable food and local sourcing, is the founder and owner of The Cleaver Co., a full- service event planning and catering operation, and The Green Table, a farm-to-table restaurant in the Chelsea Market. The Cleaver Co also operates two food and beverage kiosks at The Battery in partnership with The Battery Conservancy. Fondly known as Table Green and Table Green Café, they bring a local focus to concession-style food and drink.

The Cleaver Co. and The Green Table are widely recognized for utilizing local farms and purveyors in order to obtain the best-quality product, and for supporting small to mid-size farms and family farmers. In October 2012 Mary and her husband, Ashley Hollister, purchased farmland and are now finishing the fifth season raising pastured poultry and growing NOFA certified produce and grains at Green Table Farms in Washington County, NY.

In November 2011, Mary was named the first-ever “Snailblazer” by Slow Food NYC to honor her contributions creating a better, healthier food system for all. Her current board affiliations include Hawthorne Valley Farm, Slow Food NYC Advisory Council, the Glynwood Advisory Council, Chef’s Council for Emma’s Torch, GreenWave Advisory Council, and the High Line Corridor Pneumatic Waste-Management Initiative. She was a founder of the Farm to Chef Network.
