Seven Brands That I Trust

Seven Brands That I Trust

This year I have been bringing you stories of farmers, ranchers, and organizations that are dedicated to providing 'real & good' food and drink. These are products that are good for farmers and their workers, biodiversity, our families' tables, and the Earth we all share. My family includes omnivores, pescatarians and vegetarians. We buy our food and beverages from known and good sources from the local farm stand, online, and grocery stores. We do not have a food co-op near us but our local market does have most of the brands we support. I thought I would share with you seven brands I trust with a summary from them.

Wholesome Sweetener - USDA Organic, Fair Trade, GF, non-GMO: The Wholesome brand was founded in 2001 with a simple mission in mind: To provide high-quality baking ingredients and make life richer for everyone. We were the first to bring Fair Trade sweeteners to the U.S. and pioneer the Fair Trade standards for sugar, agave, and honey, and we’ve always led the way when it comes to creating quality products and respecting the people who make them possible

It’s what makes it the Best Bread in the Universe. It’s what makes it America’s #1 Organic Bread. But we do more than just bake killer bread. Dave’s story of turning his life around inspires us every day to look beyond someone’s past, to see their potential. at’s why we are a proud Second Chance Employer. We hire the best person for the job, regardless of criminal history. We have witnessed first-hand that someone’s past does not define their future, and that sometimes giving someone a chance is all they need to become a Good Seed. 

Lundberg Family Farms Rice - USDA Organic, Regenerative Organic, GF, non-GMO, Family Owned: At Lundberg Family Farms, we believe taking care of our land and the creatures who live on it is a year-round commitment.

Our fields are home to over 200 bird species, over the years we have rescued over 30k baby ducks and millions of migratory birds use our fields.

Back Road Granola - USDA Organic, Kosher,  Certified Glyphosate Free, Non-GMO, Family Owned: We first started making our granola as a homemade breakfast item for guests at our B&B, located on our farm on a back road in Vermont.

We currently sponsor four creative and well-established programs.
