“We really want people to understand that our story starts right here on our Hood River farm,” says company president, Jimmy Stewart.
The new design shows the pathway from “Farm to Bottle” and all the important points along the way including the central role of composting, fruit sourcing, and careful manufacturing techniques.
“The fruit we can’t grow ourselves comes from organic farms here in the United States and many of those farms are small, family owned operations just like us,” says Cheryl Stewart.
Jimmy sums it up this way:
“We are 100% organic, we are a real farm, and we are family owned… that’s three things the big guys are not and we really want people to understand that difference at the shelf.”
