"I’ve loved everything about Zilke’s, from the folks who run the operation to the real food I purchase from the day they opened the stand."

Frequently Asked Questions

Kitchen + Cooking

Do you offer gluten free or any other special diet options?


Our meal kits are prepared in a facility that handles gluten as well as all major food allergens: milk, eggs, fish, crustacean shellfish, tree nuts, peanuts, wheat, and soybeans. We do offer recipes that are adjusted to certain allergens, but we do not offer a full menu fitting to specific allergies or diets, aside from vegetarian. Our Gluten-Friendly recipes are prepared in the same facility as our other meals, and may not be suitable for those diagnosed with celiac disease. We list all ingredients and allergens in our recipes. Even though we continuously do our very best to avoid any cross-contamination, we cannot guarantee against it. Additionally, as we work with what’s in season that can easily change in supply and demand, we sometimes need to replace ingredients at the last minute. If you have any questions about a specific ingredient or product, we are happy to give you further information. You can reach us by email at info@zilkefarmkitchen.com or by phone at (734) 508-7034.




What pantry staples and equipment will I need in my home kitchen?


You'll need some basics like oil, salt, and pepper. We let you know what you'll need before you order, which we'll send to you with your email. We occasionally call for butter and broth as an optional recipe item.
To finish meals, you’ll need basic pots and pans, knife, cooking spoon, spatula, ladle, measuring cups, and spoons. Meal Kits designed for Instant Pots are clearly identified and available only as add-on or swap kits.




How soon do I need to use the Meal Kits? When do they expire?


We utilize fresh ingredients in all our preparations, and depending on the vegetable, can maintain excellent quality in ideal storage conditions for 4 to 7 days. Each item in our Subscription will be labeled with a “best by” date. Frozen items are best used within 60-90 days.




Do you offer vegetarian options?


Yes, each week we offer six meal kits, and at least two are vegetarian.




Where do you source your ingredients?


We are intentional about sourcing local products as much as possible. In the summer, our own farm supplies most of our vegetables, and in the cooler months, we rely on Frog Holler, an Ann Arbor distributor, for fresh vegetables.
