About this project

Our Story

My husband and I moved to North Dakota because of the military. We moved 20 hours away from family and friends to a place that is, for lack of better words, behind the times. There are very limited options when it comes to food here because of the location and the climate. We started to purchase organic foods striving for a healthier lifestyle. But what we sacrificed was time. Everything we made had to be made from scratch; and even though that tasted delicious we didn't always have time. 

Our Goals

  • to create a business that provides healthy, organic foods for people on-the-go. 
  • to offer the business online for convenience.
  • to prove that fast, easy food doesn't have to be unhealthy.
Kraft Paper Packaging
Kraft Paper Packaging

Our packaging will be made out of kraft paper which is made out of recycled material and is 100% biodegradable.

Our idea is to provide foods such as rice, pasta, oatmeal, trail mix, cookie & cake mixes--essentially anything you'd find in a box--BUT make it available in organic. (We also have options such as gluten free).

Why? Simple.

Living a healthier lifestyle has its benefits for everyone and it shouldn't be difficult, inconvenient, or time-consuming.

If the switch is easy, what are you waiting for?

Risks and challenges

-A challenge for us so far has been finding a local organic farm (but we found one!). North Dakota is very cold and there aren't many farms here! We'd like to stay local because staying within a community helps it thrive.
-But we've also had to search for other products online. We have found where we'll be receiving our products (which are certified organic).
-The last challenge for us will be to find the right manufacturer. We want a manufacturer that will provide us with eco-friendly boxes, air bubbles, and packaging needs. Our goal is to help you AND the planet.
