WILDWOOD began as a small, vegetarian deli in 1978 in San Francisco. It developed into the leading premier natural and organic tofu and flavored tofu company on the West Coast and recently expanding into dairy alternative soy products. Its founders remain supporters of the business still today.

 

At HORIZON™ we are committed to supporting the health of families and our planet with delicious, innovative, responsibly produced organic and natural dairy foods. Founded in 1991, Horizon is a pioneer in the organic industry, and we were the first company to supply organic milk nationally. We are proud to work with more than 500 organic family farms across the country. We are now expanding into natural foods as we continue our dedication to providing healthy options for families.

Why do we do what we do? Because we believe everyone should be able to buy high-quality, great-tasting products that are produced with integrity.

Nourishing, healthy foods can help change your life—and our world. That's the spirit that launched Silk Soymilk more than three decades ago. Silk has changed a lot since those early days. Launched in 1978, Silk was first embraced as a surprisingly delicious “health food” by the tofu-and-granola crowd in our hometown of Boulder, Colorado. In a few short years, we grew to become America's #1 soymilk brand, welcomed in refrigerators across the country. Today, Silk fans come from every walk of life—from serious athletes looking for powerful nutrition to everyday folk who just love the taste. But no matter why you choose it, our soymilk remains as good for you as ever—simple, wholesome and nourishing as nature intended.

We've known from the start that changing the world takes more than great taste and nutrition, so we've always tried hard to be good neighbors, too. We began by supporting our local Community Food Share—and we still do. But as Silk has grown, so has our definition of neighborhood, expanding to touch the communities across the country in which we do business and the environment we all share.

From our support of renewable energy to our commitment to responsible soybean sourcing, we recognize that every business decision we make has a significant community impact. Our goal: to leave a legacy we can all feel good about.

 

So why buy BROWN COW now? Simply put, it’s a product you can feel good about. We start by using milk from carefully selected local herds whose cows are noted for their rich, high protein milk. These family farmers have pledged not to treat their cows with rBGH, artificial bovine growth hormone. In addition to supporting local family farms, we also work to support the environment by donating 10 percent of our annual profits to environmental causes.

Most important, however, is the taste! To make a genuinely natural yogurt, we never use preservatives or artificial ingredients. Even though people know us best for our original Cream Top yogurt, rest assured every batch of all of our super-premium yogurts adheres to special recipes and is given meticulous attention. The end result is a wide selection of rich, creamy and positively delicious—and entirely healthy—yogurts.

Today, we still make our yogurt in small batches, using only the freshest, most wholesome natural ingredients, including milk from local dairy farms here in Northern California.

 

The GREEK GODS GREEK YOGURTS are traditional Greek Yogurts containing only quality ingredients, unique and ethnic varieties, and healthy probiotics for health living.

Currently, the Greek Gods offer Traditional Plain, Honey Flavored, Nonfat Plain, Pomegranate, and Fig varieties of yogurt in 6 oz Grab and Go, and 24 oz family sizes.

MOUNTAIN HIGH’s founders already knew what a big difference the right cultures make. Since their first batch to this very day, Mountain High has always used live, active, and probiotic cultures. Anyone can put the two yoghurt starter cultures (L. bulgaricus and S. thermophilus) in milk. But the three live, active, and probiotic cultures we’ve always added (L. acidophilus, B. bifidus, and L. casei) make a huge difference. Besides making the yogurt thick, creamy, rich, and tasty, these cultures offer numerous health benefits.

Our founders quickly discerned that the best cultures came from the well-established culture houses in Europe. We still get our cultures from these premium suppliers today. Since these cultures are also naturally present in your body, daily servings of Mountain High Yoghurt can help populate your digestive system with beneficial or “friendly” bacteria that boost immunity, aid digestion, and support your overall wellness.

 

We carry a selection of these fine specialty, local,

natural, and organic companies:

Whether it’s a Black Bean Enchilada, Veggie Pot Pie, Lentil Soup, or Vegetable Lasagna, people love the organic convenience foods created by Amy’s Kitchen. Here are some reasons why:

It’s delicious and it tastes homemade! Amy’s food tastes so good because it’s made from the kind of real food ingredients that people use in their own kitchens…no additives, no preservatives, no GMOs. If a child can’t pronounce it, you won’t find it on an Amy’s label. The cooking methods are like those used at home or in fine restaurants. For mashed potato dishes, fresh potatoes are cooked and mashed instead of being prepared with dehydrated flakes. Pizza crusts are shaped by hand. Sauces and gravies are made the old fashioned way, starting with a roux.

It’s made from organic ingredients. Fruits, vegetables and grains are grown organically, the way nature intended food to grow, without the use of insecticides and other harmful chemicals. This benefits the growers, the consumers, and the environment.

Everything is vegetarian. No meat, fish, poultry or eggs are used in any product. Cheeses are made with pasteurized rBST hormone free milk and do not contain animal enzymes or rennet.

You’ll never get bored. We have a large selection of meals! In this section, you will find quickly prepared fast food items from pockets, veggie burgers, pizzas and burritos to complete meals like Country Dinner and Enchilada Whole Meals. Some are gourmet, some just plain “down-home cooking.”

Special Diet? No problem: Amy’s makes several products for people with special dietary restrictions. For those who cannot tolerate wheat, Amy’s offers over 50 no-gluten-added offerings. For the lactose intolerant and those who prefer not to eat dairy, there are more than 50 non-dairy/lactose free, cholesterol free dishes from which to choose.

It’s a family business. Everyone participates, from grandmother to 20-year old Amy, with the family supervising every aspect of the business and taking pride in customer satisfaction. The family tastes all dishes regularly to ensure that each product is of the highest quality.

 

 

Knudsen logo

R.W. KNUDSEN In 1961, when Russel W. Knudsen began bottling fruit juices from his organic grape vineyard, he did so on one condition: his fresh pressed and blended juices would never have artificial flavors, preservatives or sugar added to them. This commitment ensured that customers who came up the hill to Knudsen's Paradise, California, Concord grape vineyard could always buy the finest juice available. Little did the R.W. Knudsen Family® know, he was starting a tradition of innovation in health-conscious products.

The R.W. Knudsen Family® tradition of integrity, innovation and variety continues today. The company's commitment to developing health-conscious fruit products based on consumers' needs has led to the introduction of many refreshing ideas.

 

 

BRIANNA'S Contrary to popular belief, Briannas incredibly delicious salad dressings aren’t the result of some mysterious culinary genius named "Brianna" who works in a secret location making her special dressings one bottle at a time. No, our story is much simpler and straightforward than that. But, the results taste as if there is indeed some mysterious magic at work!
Founded over 25 years ago in central Texas as the Del Sol Food Company, BRIANNAS Salad Dressings grew out of a desire to create a superior product with family pride and consistent high quality. Named after the owner’s daughter Marianne and grandson Brian, BRIANNAS has grown to become one of the most popular and sought-after salad dressings in the world. We’ve been fortunate to receive numerous first place industry awards for our spectacular taste, and even our packaging has been honored for its good taste with the most prestigious award in design, the “Clio.”

But even with all the accolades and praise, we remain a small, humble family-owned and operated business focused on one thing and one thing only—creating the highest quality, most delicious salad dressing available anywhere. Our many fans the world over say we’ve succeeded. And for that, we’re eternally grateful.

 

California Olive Ranch

CALIFORNIA OLIVE RANCH The outstanding quality of California Olive Ranch's extra virgin olive oil is achieved by carefully crushing the olives to extract the first juice. This raw olive juice is then smoothed and clarified by the natural procedure of decanting. This process ensures that all the fruit's rich flavor, healthy vitamins and antioxidants are kept at their very best.

 

Arbequina – has a high fruitiness, balanced pungency, and a very pleasing clean taste. Tasting notes include ripe tropical fruits, apple, and fresh artichoke.


Arbosana – has fruitiness, nutty tones, and medium pungency. Tasting notes include green tomato, almond, and green banana.

 

CLIF BARS We want a simple approach in an energy bar—not complicated formulas or gimmicks. Don’t you? It’s just an approach that makes sense. CLIF BARS are a great-tasting, convenient source of energy for any activity.  To perform at your best, the last thing you want to put in your body is a synthetic product. That’s why we believe in using healthy ingredients, such as organic rolled oats, organic roasted soybeans, organic milled flaxseed and organic soy flour. All CLIF BAR flavors are made with 70% organic ingredients.

     

 

 

Kettle Foods Potato Chips & Healthy Snacks

 

In 1982, the KETTLE FOODS community was born. And the first natural, hand-cooked potato chip was introduced to the Western US. Using only premium Russet potatoes grown on local Pacific Northwest farms, the Kettle™ brand Chip is a perfect blend of natural flavor and hand crafted precision, creating a distinct and unforgettable full potato taste. Potatoes are divided into small batches, and dunked into hot, healthy, all-natural, expeller pressed high-monounsaturated safflower and sunflower oils. Each batch is cooked by hand, carefully tended by experienced chip fryers who turn – literally with a tool inspired by a garden rake – the chips for even cooking and keep watch as the Russet’s natural sugars turn a variety of shades, from gold to rich amber. When cooked to perfection, each batch, still hot from the fryer, makes its way through hand inspection and in to the seasoning tumbler. There chips are coated with just the right amount of carefully blended natural seasonings to complement the rich taste of the Russet potato.

 

 

 

MAISIE JANE created a unique line of flavored almonds in her family kitchen at age 17 as a Future Farmers of America (FFA) project. Today, she and her husband Isidro market their products nationwide. They take pride in the fact that the almonds used are grown on their own family farm. Having almond farming deep in Maisie Jane’s blood, four generations deep in fact, it is a privilege to take the business one step further. Maisie Jane explains, “It’s so rewarding to see the smiles on the consumers' faces and to have been involved in every step along the way to create that smile!”

Maisie Jane’s hand selects the largest, highest graded variety of almonds. “We pick the Cream of the Crop”, Maisie Jane says. The Nonpareil variety, (definition in Greek meaning Superior), is mostly used in the Maisie Jane’s product line. This variety is extra sweet in taste, crunchy, and very large in size. Maisie Jane’s natural and certified organic products contain only pure ingredients with no preservatives added. This also means that they are GMO free! The fact that Maisie Jane’s entire line is dry roasted is very unique and important. Unlike the majority of roasted flavored almonds in the marketplace being deep-fried, our almonds are all oven roasted. This means they are healthier, containing no added oil and being less fattening.

 

 

MONARI FEDERZONI BALSAMIC VINEGAR

 Vinegar and mulled wine have been the leading unifying elements in Italian cuisine since the time of the ancient Romans. Balsamic vinegar from Modena is derived from mulled wine. 

Historically...
Some evidence suggests that Balsamic Vinegar, or one of its close cousins, was used as early as the period of the Gallic Invasions of Julius Caesar. Definitive evidence however traces it back to 1300.  In the Modena area, special vinegars have been produced for centuries, and the environmental conditions (terrain, climate) and the grape species are ideal for this type of product. Through the generations, the "secret of the vinegar" was closely guarded to avoid the corruption of a valuable product, which was used principally for holidays, gifts, and special occasions.

Today...
Balsamic Vinegar of Modena is a fixed point in quality food and wine connoisseurship, and its classic uses are joined by more extravagant and leading roles. Increasing numbers of restaurant dishes are being offered with "Balsamic Vinegar of Modena." Balsamic vinegar adds flavor and zest to everything from salads, to stews, to sauces, to desserts. Its flavor is extraordinary when warmed and concentrated.

PACIFIC NATURAL FOODS: WE BELIEVE FOOD SHOULD BE FOOD.

We welcome all things pure and simple, wholesome and natural when it comes to food. We stay away from ingredients we can’t read or pronounce. We believe in making food that not only tastes delicious and reminds people how all natural, not-messed-around-with food can be.

We Want To Know Where Our Food Comes From.

Long before there was a USDA Organic label, we decided to come up with our own program. In 1997 we established Certified to the Source program. Today, we can tell you where every ingredient we use comes from. In many cases, they came from our very own farms or farms we know very well. We Care About How Our Food Is Grown.  Delicious ingredients begin with the soil whether it’s butternut squash or feed for our dairy cows. So, we try to be good stewards of the land and supportive of our farmers of ranchers we partner with and the culture of organic farming in general. When we have quality ingredients to work with, our foods simply taste better.
