Manufacturing and Production Capabilities
We process from raw materials
as either fresh harvest
or upcycled co-stream.
You can’t dry them whole:
From leafy greens to soft peppers to hard butternut squash – the dicer/ shredder cuts them down to size so they are ready for the dryer.
The shredder creates fairly uniform ‘pieces’ of product, which makes the drying go faster, more efficiently, and more uniformly.
LOW AND SLOW
It’s not Rocket Science, so we don’t use a jet engine to dry our product. Why? Because we believe that the end product retains more of its inherent flavor, nutrients, and color when the drying process is … “low and slow”.
That’s why we use the type of dryer we do. It doesn’t tumble the product (risk of bruising, even when being dried), and we don’t rush the process (risk of burning or scorching).
LOTS OF OPTIONS
Whether we dry the product or it arrives to us in a more granular, dried form, we can turn the product into dices, flakes, or a variety of powders: from course to very fine.
From glass jars to sealed pouches to bulk bag-in-a-box, we have the capabilities to help others with their co-packing needs.
We could not find a suitable vendor for our smaller processing runs – it just was not efficient for them, so we made an investment in ourselves. What we learned is that there is an entire community out there who needs mid-size co-packing and we’ve gotten to know some great partners along the way.
