Boyle Naturals: Our vision as a woman-owned small business is to make “natural” the default for personal care. 

It is a marketplace where access, cost and lack of awareness about toxins and their health effects are not barriers to using healthy products. It’s a marketplace where the strategies and science employed by large corporations to reduce formula and production costs has long since been deployed to their natural product lines. We visualize our children’s generation shopping for products with choice, affordability, and a baseline understanding that health is the number one priority… because this generation demanded it for themselves and for their children.     
 
The Public Health Oath forms the backbone of our work. We care about arming individuals with information to motivate them to make a larger collective impact in the marketplace. We care about developing as people, personally and professionally, and improving the quality of life of our customers by utilizing evidence-based science in product development.

Bright Acres Farm
Bright Acres Farm: Our maple syrup is made in the Quiet Corner town of Hampton, Connecticut. It all began in the 1980's with a kid boiling sap in foil roasting pans over a 55 gallon drum stove in the back yard. The process evolved through several homemade evaporators, to an antique Grimm evaporator in an old wood shed. In 2011, we built a post and beam sugar house and installed a new state of the art, energy efficient Leader Evaporator.

While we may be operating with the most to date technology, it still takes a lot of old fashioned hard work to produce maple syrup. Thankfully, our good friends, family and neighbors are always willing to lend a helping hand.

The tradition of making maple syrup began when Native Americans cut maples and collected sap. It takes about 40 gallons of sap to make one gallon of syrup in a good year. Like fine wine the taste of syrup varies from one geographical location to another.

We hope you take pleasure in this local, sustainable, all natural product make from the bounty of the land. And remember, syrup isn't just for breakfast anymore!

Hosmer Mountain Logo
Hosmer Mountain Beverages: Hosmer Mountain Bottling Co. was purchased in 1958 by Arthur J. Potvin from Mrs. Fred Meyer, whose husband had passed away the previous summer.

The Potvin’s then became the fourth family to run Hosmer. With the help of his wife and two eldest sons: Bill and John, Arthur began the arduous tasks that make the soda business a difficult one. He worked hard at keeping the machinery operational and the trucks on the road, blending the soda varieties, and keeping the customer happy. He learned how to make good soda with the help of a salesman and through trial and error.

All soda was made with bagged sugar in those days and dry ice was converted to gaseous CO2 for the carbonation. All cases were wooden and bottles were all heavy refillable glass bottles. Two more sons, Andrew and Chuck, joined the operation in the late 60’s.

Early changes included getting a company logo (the shield that is still used today) and going to reusable fiber cases. However, the use of glass bottles has remained constant. Many of the same flavors are still available today along with the addition of diet beverages, seltzer water, and some new trendy drinks.

Poduck Popcorn: In 2013, after 3 years of unsuccessful sweet corn growing, Daniel Dzen decided to plant popcorn on a 1/2 acre lot at his family's Dzen Tree Farm property. He tended to the field carefully, ensuring that the crop had everything it needed, from water to nutrients. By the fall, with the help of friends and family, each ear of popcorn was harvested by hand and stored in a drying bin. Recognizing the heft and quality of glass mason jars, Dan decided that glass was the best way to package his homegrown popcorn. He focused his attention most on quality- the popcorn had to pop just right or he wouldn't sell it. Since the popcorn was grown just feet away from the Podunk River, one of South Windsor's oldest landmarks, the brand name "Podunk Popcorn" stuck instantly.

After selling the entire crop within 3 months of harvest, Dan knew he was on to something. He began renting more land and looked for ways to boost his yields while continuing to be sustainable. Dan searched far and wide to find (or learn how to build) equipment that would ensure the best quality yet lower the price to the consumer. With the support of local businesses and numerous advisors from all over the Northeast, Podunk Popcorn has become a leader in Connecticut-Grown popcorn. Podunk Popcorn has proven that local food is fresher and tastes a whole lot better, too. 

Today, we are farming more land, buying better equipment, and sourcing better packaging. All of these components will help us combine the quality you demand with the family-farm values that you trust.

Woodfun Gardens: Much like wine, which is made from either red or white grapes and those grapes having many varietals, it is the same with garlic. Our Garlic Salt Blends are equally unique. We make garlic salts with single garlic varietals or a blend of several varietals that we grow and taste for flavor. We then cure and grind the garlic, blend it with Kosher salt and pepper and dehydrate it at lower temperatures for 36 hours to preserve the flavor and health benefits of the garlic. The garlic salt you get today from WoodFun Gardens, like wine, is selected for the flavor of the garlic and blended one batch at a time. Currently we have blends that include Carpathian, Blossom and Chesnok Hard Neck cultivars and Chet’s Italian and Kettle River Soft Neck cultivars, as well as PURE dehydrated Elephant Garlic!
