What makes your business one of the best small businesses in your community?
We believe our business is one of the best small businesses in our community because we are a mission driven company; our mission is to prepare a tasty and nutritious product using organic crops that are locally grown. In this way we can support local organic farmers by creating a value-added product using their crops. We believe in sustainable agriculture and organic agriculture. We believe food can be produced without potentially dangerous inputs such as pesticides. We believe in buying local, supporting the local economy and reducing the environmental impacts associated with purchasing foods that are produced in far away places, and even other countries. We believe in making a healthy product since we all should be eating healthy foods- our product is clean label, vegan, whole grain, nut-free, non-GMO, and organic. We also believe in paying our employees a livable wage. We are all in this together!
