How did 88 Acres get started, Nicole?
I grew up on an 88 acre organic farm in North Brookfield, Massachusetts and my experiences on the farm gave me a strong connection to food. A few years ago I met the love of my life, Rob, and on our fourth date he almost died at dinner when his meal was cross-contaminated with nuts. The next day, I got rid of all the peanuts and tree nuts from my kitchen to help make Rob safe. I have no food allergies, but because of his, how I thought about food began to change.We always struggled to find healthy, convenient snacks that Rob could eat but I would love as well.
So I began experimenting at home with craft seed bars. Soon enough friends, both with food allergies and without, started to steal bites and place orders. After lots of rave reviews, we realized maybe we were on to something and the journey of 88 Acres began.
