Our Story

Our goal is to take our products NATIONAL.  We can only do that with your help.  Contributing to our campaign will bring the best tasting, conscious products to your market.  You will not only enjoy easy access to our products but also know that you made it happen!

Our story begins back in 2001, when we adopted our son, Josh, from the foster care system. He was deathly allergic to peanuts, tree nuts, sesame, pistachio, soy and chocolate, so we had to make big changes.  It was a challenging time. There were no allergy warnings and we had to call EVERY manufacturer to find out if they processed anything with nuts, seeds, soy or chocolate.

Even just a tiny speck of food allergens could send him into anaphylactic shock. So, I began to make homemade versions of "classics" that he could not eat.  I learned how to make copycats of things like Oreos, Twinkies and Cheezits.  I learned how to make bagels and tortillas, bread and more. 

Josh - The inspiration for Huck's Hollow Farm!

Just about the time that allergy warnings finally began to appear on food packages, we learned about factory farming and GMOs.  I went right back to homemade as most organic food is made in facilities that process nuts.  The interesting part was that our food began to taste better and better. 

In 2010 we moved to a homestead farm property.  We began to raise our own food.  I spent two years learning to live on what I could raise myself or was available locally.  I learned canning and dehydrating and other preserving techniques.  Friends and family began telling me that I should sell my goods.  Soon enough, a cottage food law passed in California.

As I learned more and more about chemicals, additives and pesticides in food, I became passionate that all families should have access to clean, healthy food and from that stance, Huck’s Hollow Farm products entered the marketplace.  

At first I thought I was just doing something wholesome and good for our community. Then I researched crackers and spices at a food show.  I tasted every cracker in the show, organic or not.  I realized that our food tasted really really good! I then knew that we had to expand from our small kitchen direct to your family’s table!

------ Our Products: Vegan Crackers ------

Huck's Hollow Farm products are all about flavor.  Our crackers are not your ordinary crackers. Light and crisp, bold in flavor and and made only with the best quality olive oil; you won't be able to put them down!

Garden Rosemary - Rosemary mild enough to be delicious and not overpowering.  

Rosemary Onion - Fresh onion and dehydrated onion combine with the olive oil and rosemary to make the most amazing snack cracker we have ever had!  Even more fabulous dipped in onion dip.

The Everything Cracker - Freshly dehydrated garlic and onion, pumpkin seed, chia, sunflower and flax seed make this  deliciously seedy, earthy and nutty in flavor.  So yummy!

------ Our Products: Gluten Free Vegan Crackers ------

Our gluten free crackers will knock your socks off!  The flavor is so outstanding and what a crunch!  Wheat lovers go crazy for these too. You won't ever feel like you are giving up something to live a gluten free life. (note:  we do process wheat in our kitchen, so if you are not able to tolerate products that are cross-contaminated, these would not be safe for you.)  These are available in two flavors: 

Gluten Free Rosemary Onion - So crunchy, oniony and delicious! 

Gluten Free Everything - Crunchily combines garlic, onion, flax, chia, sunflower and pumpkin seeds to make these earthy, savory, bold and delicious!

------ Our Products: Rubs & Blends ------

We currently have 25 rubs and blends available.  We have 8 more in the works.  We will also be adding dressing mixes, dip mixes, rice seasoning blends and more.  Right now our top 10 are:

Magic Rub - The best meat rub for beef, pork and chicken. Works beautifully for BBQ and outstanding for Latin dishes as well.  Makes the most amazing crock pot meal in approximately 5 minutes!

Mrs. Huck's Salt Free Blend - Packed full of "raw" vegetables, this is our "go to" seasoning for everything.  It is fabulous on all veggies, salads, soups, pizza and sandwiches.  Whether you use salt, or not, this is the most universal seasoning you can have in your kitchen.

Let's Go Out Back Steak Rub - Smoked paprika and turmeric make this my favorite for all things steak. This makes an amazing burger too!

Cup A Joe Steak Rub - the flavors of coffee, cinnamon and brown sugar combine to form an amazing crust of flavor on beef, but is so unique,  you can even top grilled peaches with it!

Tandoori Masala - Every other Tandoori blend we have tried, tastes like salt.  Here is the "rub"; real Indian food does not typically contain salt.  Our Indian Blends have no salt.  The flavor is stupendous!

Garam Masala - Lots of pepper and toasted cumin give this a great flavor.  Our customers often tell is this is better than any Garam they have ever tried.

Tikka Masala - Fresh and bold flavors stand alone with no salt.  Fresh "raw" mint adds an additional element of freshness.

Lemon Herb - This is fabulous on salads, veggies and makes an herbaceous vinaigrette.

Adobo Rub - Freshly dehydrated garlic makes this the most delicious Adobo blend you will ever try.  Adobo can mimic the dry flavor of barbecue sauce.  When combined with BBQ sauce makes it "double BBQ."  It also adds an extra flair in Latin dishes.

Fresh Italian Blend - Freshly dehydrated garlic and air dried oregano makes this the most fresh and delicious italian blend.

Herbs de' Provence - Our fresh herbs and fresh orange peel make this the most outstanding you will find.

We have already achieved great LOCAL success & we are now poised for huge growth!  We are maxed out of our little kitchen and ready to expand.

Risks and challenges

We are mitigating much risk by choosing to use Kickstarter as a platform instead of taking on debt. The foreseeable challenges that could come our way, as of now, are delays in Organic certification/Organic PFR timing. Getting this campaign off the ground has slowed down that process a bit. We could have a slow start at direct internet sales but are still adding 4 new wholesale accounts per month, so, that will sustain us. If we are successful with this Kickstarter campaign, our fixed expenses will be covered for the rest of the year. This is how we are taking much risk out of the project!
