The Wild Way
Born from a sense of reverence for the natural marine ecosystem, Wild Planet offers consumers a wide variety of premium, sustainably sourced seafood containing abundant essential nutrients. Wildly Good, Wildly Delicious and Wildly good for you!
Fishing for Change
Because Wild Planet supports selective harvest practices, all tuna is caught by pole and line or trolling methods. Because these methods catch the target species one fish at a time, there is very low incidence of by-catch of other species or juveniles of the target species.
Wild Planet tuna is cooked right in the can, retaining the nutrient-rich, omega-3 fatty acids and the natural juices—a difference you can taste because there isn’t any added water. Equally delicious and versatile are Wild Planet’s other products—omega-3-rich species such as mackerel, white anchovies and sardines. You’ll also find amazing flavor in the wild salmon products, caught in Alaska by small-scale fishing families.
Home on the Range
Wild Planet believes that a healthy planet is comprised of both living water and living soil. To that end, the company now provides a land-based protein – Organic Roasted Chicken Breast, raised on a diet which includes non-GMO corn grown on land that is free from chemical fertilizers, herbicides and pesticides. These chemicals eventually run off and enter the oceans. Wild Planet’s support of organic farming is a step towards keeping waterways and oceans clean and healthy, and is considered to be the land-based equivalent of sustainable pole and line fishing.
Video Description: Learn how the tuna sourced for Wild Planet by the use of sustainable fishing methods minimizes the bycatch of millions of pristine sea creatures.

Since 1984, when the Duncan family started farming a quarter acre of lettuce in Lamont, California, they have expanded their organic farm to include more than 65 seasonal and year-round vegetables. Today, Cal-Organic Farms
is the largest organic vegetable producer in the U.S.—100% of which is grown on family-owned acreage. They believe in doing everything it takes to provide vibrant and nutritious organic produce that you and your family will love.
Farmed with Pride & Integrity
Striving to be good stewards of the land by advancing innovation in farming, Cal Organic surpasses the standard for organic practices. Their farmers use composted manures, cover crops and crop rotation to enrich the soil naturally and prevent erosion. When it comes to pests and weeds, they turn to natural sources like populations of beneficial insects and use cover crops to divert attention away from their precious organic plants.

The Folkvord family has been farming and milling in Southwest Montana for three generations. Their 15,000 acres are situated at high elevation—5,000 feet above sea level. The location, combined with cool nights, produces some of the highest quality grains available.
Sustainably Grown and Milled Just Down the Road
Committed to sustainable farming, the Folkvord family utilizes crop rotations which improves the quality of their harvests as well as the land producing them. Once harvested, they utilize a unique process, known as impact milling. The process’ low temperatures help to retain the grain’s vital nutrients. And, the process itself creates a superior flour to other methods like roller or stone milling. With nothing added and nothing removed, their products are crafted with freshness, nutrition and quality you can taste.
- Small-batch quality
Why whole grain?
There are three parts to a grain, the germ, endosperm and bran. Each has its part to play to create whole-grain goodness. When white flour is milled, only the inner endosperm—the carb-laden, energy part of the grain—is retained. Removing the bran and the germ portions though, shortchanges the nutrition of the resulting flour. Whole-grain flour keeps all three parts which means you benefit from the entire grain’s powerhouse including:
- B vitamins
Wheat Montana Farms made its way into the Guinness Book of World Records for cutting, milling, mixing and baking a loaf of bread in 8 minutes and 13 seconds!
Thanksgiving Recipes in a Hurry
Whether you’re surprised with extra Thanksgiving guests, or simply want to shorten your time in the kitchen to enjoy it with family, here are three quick and easy recipes that are so flavorful no-one would ever guess they came with shortcuts!
Spicy Cranberry Relish
Spicy Cranberry Relish is a great alternative to traditional cranberry sauce. Tart and citrusy, this cranberry dish packs heat from a combination of Fresno and jalapeño peppers as well as ginger and cayenne.
- In a medium saucepan on medium-high heat, add the sugar, lemon juice, orange juice, peppers, ginger, cayenne and water. Stir with a wooden spoon. Bring to a simmer to dissolve the sugar.
- Add the cranberries and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to medium and continue cooking and stirring occasionally for approximately 10 minutes. The relish should be void of water and look thick and chunky.
- Let the relish cool and then serve. It can also be stored in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks in an airtight container.
French Onion and Chive Mashed Potatoes
Make instant mashed potatoes special by adding flavors of French onion and chives. Then, top it with charred red onions for taste and visual appeal that will have your holiday guests going back for seconds.
- In a medium saucepan, bring the milk, water and butter to a boil. Alternatively, add the ingredients to a microwave-safe dish to heat until the butter is melted.
- Meanwhile, on high heat, char the red onions in a pan. Set aside.
- Add the mashed potato flakes and French onion dip mix to the milk mixture and stir. Once combined, fold in the chives.
- Serve the potatoes topped with the charred red onions and chopped parsley.
Salted Caramel Pumpkin Macchiato
Stay lively after your Thanksgiving feast with this Salted Caramel Pumpkin Macchiato. The espresso becomes a decadent treat with steamed milk infused with salted caramel and pumpkin spice.
- Create flavored milk by adding the milk, salted caramel syrup and pumpkin spice to a milk frother. Turn on to steam and infuse the milk.
- To a mug, add the vanilla syrup and top with the steamed milk. Include the froth.
- Slowly pour the espresso into the center of the mug. A thinner and more consistent stream creates a more defined layer between the espresso, steamed milk and froth.
- Garnish with a drizzle of salted caramel syrup, sprinkle of pumpkin spice and turbinado sugar.
