About Us and Our Story

I am a Vegan Mom who lives in Traverse City, Michigan with three great kids and a great husband.  I love peanut butter, and in 2007 began searching for the ultimate product for myself and, more importantly, my kids. I didn't trust the major brands and needed to know that my kids were eating pure, healthy food.  I was on a quest for a peanut butter that tasted amazing and, at the same time, was packed with natural and organic ingredients.  

I love hemp seed and flax seed because their benefits are endless (see health info page) but I couldn't find any peanut butter that used them at the time.  While there are some good peanut butters out there, nothing seemed perfect.  I was looking for a healthy alternative to the major brands without compromising taste and texture. Eventually I couldn't find what I was looking for and just decided to create my own.  I found out quickly that it was hard work but I was lucky to have the help of friends and family.  Since the peanut butters were such a success I ventured into other nut and seed butters like almond, sunflower and pumpkin seed. Each one has its own challenges but I am so happy to be able to offer something for everyone with or without peanut and tree nut allergies. 

Please enjoy the results of my quest and experimentation.  Each nut and seed butter is a unique gourmet concoction that is full of flavor and requires only a spoon (or clean finger).  Each flavor is created using my own unique recipes in small careful batches.  The process is completed in our facility which has been approved by the FDA and the Michigan Department of Agriculture.  All of my creations are made by us, for all ages and truly handcrafted for health and a whole lot of happiness.

Try all of the flavors and enjoy!
