It started in 2009 with my immediate family and a few friends. Today it is an exclusive list of family, friends, and friends of friends that have become stakeholders and share in our mission.
Due to our production methods, harvest timing, oxidation control procedures and transport, the list is currently limited in space.
We are working on expanding the list and making these releases more available by rejuvenating more land.
