In 2001, I moved to a yard where my landlord was Jamaican. It was then that I realized I had a deep appreciation for the Caribbean culture. Over the years, I developed an obsession for Jamaican jerk chicken…a pimento wood smoked chicken rubbed in “Jerk Sauce” (a spicy dry-rub or pepper marinade consisting of three main ingredients: scotch bonnets, allspice, and scallions). This craving would lead me all around the world in search of the best jerk.

Oh Shito! is the brainchild of our co-founder, Kwame Asare. On a trip to Ghana in 2019, he was inspired by the essence and rich culture of his birthplace. The warm greetings of Ghanaians, along with the familiar tastes of bold cuisines reignited buried memories of childhood. One constant staple of his favorite waakye dish was shito — a common sauce condiment in Ghana.

If you were reincarnated as a cow, you could scarcely do better than to be one of the Jerseys or Holsteins of Arethusa Farm. At the Litchfield dairy farm, the cows are treated to daily tail washing, conditioning and brushing, frequent bedding changes, wide-open pastures, and all-around pristine conditions. These high standards of care have created exquisitely clean, rich milk.
