Mint!





(post by Samantha)

Hi! Just finished packing up for the market tomorrow. There is mint! It is starting to come in season so that means we are making Mint Chip smoothies tomorrow. Our dear friend Cooper said he has a ton of mint growing out at his house and offered for us to use some. I am very excited about that! Hope to see you there so we can celebrate mint together.
Check us out...

Rainy Days



(post by Samantha)

Hey Everyone! Hope you are doing so so well. We have had a great week this week, our pace really switched up. We had a large order to fill that required us to make almost everything but macaroons. Some new innovations came along such as some ginger snap cookies and chocolate energy balls. We are just going nuts with these cookies (pun intended). Tomorrow at the market, our lovely tiered cookie tray is going to be packed. Also, our local co-op, Greenstar, is now carrying our cookies in packages of two. They are going to be a hit!

Though it has been rainy the past few days (the sound of it is really nice right now), we are still super pumped for the market tomorrow. Check out the menu below, I highly recommend the lemon cheesecake, its kind of amazing. Much love.

We Heart Friends





(post by Samantha)

Tomorrow is the Farmer's Market! Yay! We are really excited, as always. Saturdays we get ready and now have three amazing friends who come and help out: Parker, Matilda and Sarah. It's so fun when they come; already a highlight of the weekends. We are so grateful for their amazing work and enthusiasm for what we are doing. 
The article came out in the ithaca times this week. It was so beautiful and we have been receiving some beautiful acknowledgements from it. Thank you to Taryn who wrote the article! Check out our fame:  http://www.ithacatimes.com/main.asp?SectionID=16&SubSectionID=87&ArticleID=9295&TM=79227.72

Below are our offerings at the market tomorrow...I'm especially excited about the pies, they are just to die for and so pretty to look at.

Ps: listen to 92WICB tonight from 10pm-12am for "Beef and Broccoli," featuring the most talented DJ Cappel (Ian).

The Zero Waste Diet




(post not by Ian)

Hi Everyone! So Ian and I have decided to take on a new diet that we developed called "The Zero Waste Diet." Here's what it entails: Everything that you consume...including what it was packaged in...must be compostable. It's so simple. For example, Ian went to the co-op to get some veggies and was about to get some cauliflower but then realized that it was wrapped in plastic and therefore not on the diet. So he said no and got some loose broccoli instead. We are allowing glass containers that we can re-use and compostable corn plastics (like our macaroon packages!) and that's it. So far, for me, it has brought my attention to how much waste our food produces. It's incredible. It has also brought my attention to how easy it is to avoid all of this waste. If everyone ate "The Zero Waste Diet," we could save the planet. 

By following "The Zero Waste Diet" not only are you contributing to an extremely healthy body by eating mostly fresh food, but also to the sustainability of our planet. I challenge you all to take on this diet and let us know about your experience. Talk to you soon.

P.S. There was an article printed about us in the Ithaca Times today, we are feeling very famous.

Moves and Grooves





(post by Samantha)

I am listening to Ian's new radio show on 92 WICB "Beef and Broccoli." It will be playing every Saturday night from 10pm-12am. It's pretty amazing and one of Ian's dreams come true! Go boy! We have had such a great week (once again) at Emmy's. Not only did we get a ton done with our summer intern Peter Jenkins, but we got four new vendors...Gimme! Coffee, Cafe Gratitude, Bet The Farm and Sheldrake Point Winery. This is such a beautiful acknowledgement for us! Things are getting busy and the extra hands from our friends and family are so appreciated. What an amazing community we have.


The weather tomorrow is supposed to be lovely. I cant wait for the market. I really really love it there! We have our friend Bad Boy Billy coming to do some filming for us too. Pretty exciting. Here is our menu for tomorrow. Hope to see you around. Thanks for the love!

Happy June


(post by Samantha)

Happy June Everyone! I cant believe that it is already here and that summer is approaching. We have had some really cool projects going on down at the Headquarters. Yesterday we made over 300 raw cookies for our friend Alex who runs www.rawguru.com. He noticed that we started making cookies and placed an order! So great! We also were just officially asked to do some custom wedding favors for a couple getting married in Albany. I cant wait to put these together. We are thinking about doing a small box with two truffles inside, it's going to be so cute. Thank you to our beautiful friend Elizabeth for referring us for the favors. I can officially say that we "do" weddings now. Always expanding. On that note we are in the market for a larger fridge. We are growing out of our current space. 
In the past few days I have had a few conversations about the progress of Emmy's Organics. We are working in such a great flow. I found the picture above the other night and could not believe that it was only six months ago that we were making everything in a home kitchen and keeping our dehydrators in Ian's bedroom! Now looking at our new space, new opportunities and happy vendors, I cant help but be so proud of Ian and myself. This is just amazing! (I know I say that a lot).
Thank you as always for coming along and supporting our ride. We love our people. 

Talk to you soon!

p.s. I am really getting in to Twitter. Follow us! emmysorganics.
