Health-Ade kombucha was started in 2012 by a husband, wife, and best friend in a true farmers market start-up story: a small credit card and a big dream to make REAL FOOD and bring only that to the commercial shelf. The best tasting and highest quality kombucha you can buy is just the start, as their ultimate mission is to be the champion of the happiest and healthiest you.

Health-Ade Kombucha Sorbet RecipeWhat is Kombucha?

Old-school kombucha is made via primary and secondary fermentation using four simple ingredients; water, tea, sugar and a SCOBY (symbiotic colony of bacteria and yeast). Health-Ade is proud to do this the real way. Fermentation is where the activity of friendly bacteria, yeasts and enzymes (aka probiotics) eat the sugar in sweet tea and turn it into tasty, and slightly bubbly, kombucha. A couple things to note—all kombucha is made with sugar (it’s more for the probiotics than for you) and the highest quality ingredients will make the best tasting brew. If made the real way, it can take up to four weeks to make a bottle. That’s how Health-Ade makes it every day.

Farmers for Organic India ORGANIC INDIA was born out of a desire to be a vehicle of consciousness in the global market. By creating a holistic, sustainable business modality, they inspire, promote and support true wellness, and respect for all beings and for Mother Nature. These ideals and practices are the reason ORGANIC INDIA is a B Corp—a certification that ensures a business is helping to create a greater world for all—employees, farmers, communities, animals and the environment are all treated with respect.

Empowering People

All of the herbs for ORGANIC INDIA’s teas and supplements are grown on small family farms in India. They empower self-sufficiency of these farmers and their communities by reintroducing traditional farming practices, subsidizing the transition to certified organic, as well as paying a premium market price for the herbs. These farmers are able to rotate crops between growing for ORGANIC INDIA, and growing food for their own family, creating a sustainable income for them and preserving their well-being.

Helping Mother Nature

Central to ORGANIC INDIA’s vision is a deep respect and devotion to Mother Nature. All of the farmers and the tribal wildcrafters are educated in ways to enrich the biodiversity of the land and regenerate the soil through composting, water management, crop protection and rotation. Every year, through these regenerative agriculture practices, their farmers help to revive the local ecosystem in their communities.

Sharing Abundance

They believe their success is living proof that shared abundance can be created with an uncompromising commitment to environmental and social responsibility. When you choose to buy products from ORGANIC INDIA, you’re joining this rich story by supporting these fair and sustainable practices.

Founded in 2003, Alaffia grew out of a shared calling to do right by the world.

Maple Hill Creamery

When Tim and Laura Joseph purchased a 250-acre dairy farm in 2003, they knew nothing about farming. Shortly thereafter, they transitioned their cows from conventional methods to an organic, 100% grass-fed diet and noticed their cows were much healthier.

In 2009, Tim and Laura were joined by family members Pete and Julia Meck, together they founded Maple Hill Creamery. They began by crafting old-fashioned “creamline” yogurt by hand, using milk from their own 100% organic grass-fed dairy herd. A year later, other 100% grass-fed organic dairy farms began joining the Maple Hill Creamery Milkshed which now numbers 150 farms strong. Sometimes described as outliers of the industrial dairy system, Maple Hill’s diverse group of farmers share the same vision they’ve held since day one—to show that organic grass-fed dairy is better for us, better for cows, better for the land and better for farmers.

Better for Cows

100% grass-fed dairy farming is the model they believe can only succeed when each and every farmer is consistently well-paid for their milk, receives ongoing support and education to optimize their grass-fed herds’ health and is a fully valued member of the Milkshed. Maple Hill supports a regenerative system of farming that is best for the farmers, cows, consumers and earth.

The longevity and health of all their cows is imperative to the Maple Hill farmers. Their organic grass-fed cows live two to three times longer than most dairy cows, that’s because their diet is as nature intended—cows are meant to eat only grass. Organic dairy farmers feed their cows grains, which is what helps set Maple Hill apart. What a cow eats changes the makeup of the milk. Feeding them a wide variety of grasses creates milk that is higher in conjugated linoleic acid (CLA) and total omega-3s.

As an interesting twist, the farmers that milk the cows think of themselves as grass farmers rather than dairy farmers. All the cows in the Maple Hill family of farms are 100% grass-fed organic. No corn, no grain, just grass and lots of it—a cow eats about 38 pounds of grass a day. To feed their cows, Maple Hill dairy farmers grow over 150 different kinds of grass—like alfalfa, blue grass, sweet clover, chicory and rye grass—all to nourish their cows.

Better for the Land

Across all the Maple Hill farms, healthy soil is the cornerstone of everything they do. Growing a wide variety of grasses as well as the cows themselves, contributes to the health of the soil and regeneration of the land. Grazing cattle, when managed correctly, are a very effective tool in helping to create a healthy base of microorganisms in the soil. In turn, these microorganisms help to capture and sequester carbon from the atmosphere. This way of farming is called regenerative agriculture. Healthier soil means healthier grass and healthier cows who produce healthier food for us.
