Food Allergies: The Mother of Invention
When Theresa and Jim Huck adopted their son, Josh, his food allergies–to peanuts, tree nuts, sesame, soy and pistachios were something to which the couple had to adjust.
Part of that adjustment was to make a majority of his food from scratch.
“This birthed an organic food company, called Huck’s Hollow Farm, which Josh named.” says his mother.
They started about a year and a half ago making vegan crackers, gluten-free vegan crackers, rubs and blends, and baking mixes. They also raise chickens and sell pastured eggs.
Huck’s Hollow Farm Homemade Goods is now in the middle of their Kickstarter campaign, seeking $20,000 to bring their products to the national market place.
This is the sum total of our vision and motivation for Huck’s Hollow Farm Homemade Goods.”
Their goal is non-GMO, gluten-free, organic food with environmental friendly packaging.
This is from their Kickstarter page:
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!
Jim, Theresa and Josh Huck have lived in Nevada County, California for 16 years.
Their community has taught them how to think about the Earth, which in turn, taught them to think about the sources of their food.
They firmly believe GMO’s are dangerous to our health, the environment and our society as a whole.
Like all of you, they don’t want pesticides in our food or chemicals in our packaging.
With their Kickstarter campaign they have pledged to provide clean food in clean packaging that won’t destroy our planet.
They conclude with this:
This is the sum total of our vision and motivation for Huck’s Hollow Farm Homemade Goods.
