Wow Wow!

(post by Samantha)

Has it really been 20 days? I have missed our blogging! I dont even know where to begin. Well the most exciting piece of news is that yesterday, Emmy's Organics was approved for its very first Whole Foods Market order. This is truly a dream come true! I mean, WHOLE FOODS! The market in Princeton, NJ will be serving up some Emmy's in the next week or so. It was such a beautiful coincidence that one of Ian's childhood friends, Keeli, works at the very Whole Foods Market that we had been working with. She has been so supportive and amazing and I would like to acknowledge her for that! Thank you, Keeli! One step before Keeli involves the lovely Marian, who was the one who went in to this specific Whole Foods, noticed their selection of raw products and started talking to the right people. She made quite the move because here we are, approved and awaiting our first order from them. We have no idea what is going to happen next, but it is so exciting! Thank you, Marian for your courage and for sharing our dreams. While I am at it, I would like to acknowledge Ian for his all around wonderful-ness. I decided to take a trip to New York City to attend a Landmark Forum, a transformative seminar (to say the least!). Anyway, it was my first time leaving the kitchen for such a long period of time. Ian held it down and was so supportive of me going on this adventure. It was an amazing experience; I learned so much and I am back fully inspired and excited about our business! So thank you Ian for being you and for your greatness. Wow, I am just full of gratitude this evening! Who knew? Anyway, I am extra pumped to get to the market tomorrow because I really missed it last weekend. See you there!

Cashew Butter





(post by Samantha)

Well, there are so any things that I could talk about right now. This was a really cool week because we have been thinking a lot about employees. We really want employees to have a meaningful experience working for us and I know it will be meaningful to us in return. It has been fun to talk about and ask people about their favorite work experiences have been.

Another fun creation of this week is raw cashew butter. After some time, our commercial nut grinding machine will not just be used for the occasional snack! One of Ian's favorite things to eat right now is cashew butter. He was really pumped to jar it up, shrink wrap the top (another new element to our jarring!) and label it. The jars look so beautiful. We will have them at the Market tomorrow.

I made our brownies today and I really think they are my favorite thing...as a chocolate lover. We will also be serving our Key Lime Pie. We have some serious fans out there. See you at the market tomorrow!

Busy Bees!




(post by Samantha)


Hi!
As the title of this blog post describes...we have been so busy! It's just amazing and wonderful. Out wholesale business is doing very well. We continuously receive re-orders from all of our vendors and we are continuously getting new ones. Our local distributing company, Regional Access recently took our products on. They have been sending out samples to a ton of stores and last week we started receiving orders. It feels very cool! ALSO, we have our very first salesperson! Our beloved friend Marian, who has been helping us out at the market recently took samples down to her hometown in New Jersey and got us a new account! We were so excited! This new store, called It's A Wrap, really loved our stuff and even invited Marian to come down and do a demo this past week! We are so proud of her and feel so blessed to have her on board. Check out this beautiful woman! Thank goodness she has an iphone.

Here is the menu for the Farmer's Market, hope to see you there!
