Food Production Consulting from Garden and Farm, to Food Product and Nutritional Supplement Production with a focus on the Ultimate Nutritional Content, Superior Flavor, and Extended Shelf Life achieved with Environmentally-Sustainable methods. The aim is to “Create Health from the Soil Up” by producing exceptionally nutrient rich foods using “Beyond Organic” techniques.

I work with gardeners and farmers performing soil and plant tissue tests to determine what their plants need to express their full potentials, and create “Beyond Organic”, Nutrition Grown quality foods.

I am an avid horsewoman, so I enjoy working with horse people to improve their pastures and help their equine friends experience the best in life.

I work with food product and nutritional supplement companies to acquire the best quality “Beyond Organic” ingredients, develop recipes/formulations for unique, tasty products, and assist with packaging and marketing.
