healthy delicious and ethical.

in a snack? impossible, right? back in 2013, we figured the only way to check all those boxes was to make it ourselves.

we spent the next three years tracking down incredible ingredients, the right ones (nine as it turned out), travelling, tasting, weighing and mixing (in a wooden bowl on the kitchen tablet to start with) to land on the perfect calibration of taste, texture, nutrition.

it had to be ethical too.

so all our ingredients are 100% organic, small-batch and responsibly–sourced (more of that later, find out about leo our cranberry guy and other inspiring farmers), we run with as light a footprint as possible and a promise to the conservation alliance.

small footprint. big idea.

we like to think that every handful of shār is a big vote for community and for giving back to our amazing planet.

so, hunting down the most incredible ingredients and growers, ones that align with our own environmental principles and love of nature, is one part of the mix. the other is making sure everything we do stacks up environmentally.

our t-shirts are organic and recycled, our packaging is plastic–free and we give 20% of our net profits to the conservation alliance.

these guys have been working hard to protect and conserve wild places since 1989. we’re proud to be a member and to contribute to the incredible work they’re doing.

nine incredible ingredients

this is where we roll out the red carpet for the stars of the show – our ingredients and the brilliant people behind them.

rule of thumb? organic, small–batch, responsibly–sourced.

almonds
turlock, CA
from sunny turlock, california
from the sunny almond groves in the heart of California’s central valley come our crunchy whole almonds, certified organic and kosher by growers who put sustainability and environmental stewardship at the heart of what they do. with an impressive cv of health benefits, related to blood pressure and cholesterol among many others, almonds were a shoo-in for us. it was just finding the right ones. great we got these winners.
pecans
Quemado Valley, TX
from the home of pecans, texas
from the land of pecans, texas, where they thrive in the long, hot summers, ours are always current harvest and clean dry-roasted so way fresher and more nutrient-dense than usual. once a delicacy (we can see why), these buttery whole nuts (technically a fruit) are rich in flavor and bursting with naturally occurring fiber, manganese, magnesium, zinc, iron, b vitamins, protein and those all-important fatty acids.
cashews
Bu Dang, Vietnam
naturally whole & crunchy
what we love about our cashews is that they’re totally as nature intended, clean dry roasted with no additives of any kind. from a small organic farm in the lush, tropical climate of vietnam, they’re from a trusted supplier who’s been doing this for 25 years. these whole cashews are naturally rich in protein, fiber and minerals such as copper, magnesium, vitamin b6 and selenium.
pistachios
santa barbara, CA
nuggets of californian sunshine
we struck lucky when we found this family grown and harvested in santa barbara, california, these green nuggets of goodness (technically seeds not nuts) are packed full of protein, fiber, vitamin K, thiamin, vitamin b6, iron, magnesium, phosphorous, potassium, copper, manganese and selenium. need we go on…
blueberries
royal city, WA
from the beautiful columbia basin
certified organic, harvested at their absolute peak then naturally air-dried, our whole blueberries are low in calories and high in nutrients. long-hailed a superfood, they’re bursting with antioxidants. berry royalty indeed. ours come from the columbia basin where the soil and climate produce the best wild blueberries.
montmorency cherries
royal city, WA
tart & juicy from washington
we source ours from a third generation organic farm in washington state where conditions are just perfect for growing these famously tart berries. hailing from ancient greece and persia back in the day, we’re now lucky enough to find them right here in the us, ripe montmorencies delivering a serious antioxidant hit and health benefits for the heart, brain and sleep.
cranberries
cape code, MA
grown & harvested in cape cod
leo, our cranberry guy, did we mention him? he’s the powerhouse behind these antioxidant goodies. farming out of cape cod, Massachusettes in the heartland of cranberry country, these are ideal conditions for the perfect harvest - known for vitamin c, our whole berries also pack some serious fiber and minerals too.
dark chocolate
san francisco, CA
from a west coast artisan
artisan chocolate in trail mix? absolutely. seek out these chips of chocolatey superfood goodness, 55% cocoa, from our fifth generation chocolatier in San Francisco, small-batch all the way and fair trade-certified. this family has been making chocolate since 1868, that’s a lot of experience, and this dairy-free dark chocolate is choc-full of antioxidants and, yes it’s true, minerals.
coconut flakes
Pasig City, Phillippines
from lush, tropical groves
for this one, we had to cast our net wider. no coconut groves here in the u.s. so ours are from an organic farm in the phillippines. we had to look long and hard for this one. it had to play well with all the other strong characters in our cast, pitch-perfect in texture, taste and format. unsweetened, of course.
