Supporting Regenerative AgricultureLearn more about their farm and mission
We proudly source all of the organic grains used in our products from Oatman Flats Ranch, a family owned and NCOF certified organic farm pioneering regenerative farming practices in hot and dry climates.
Engaging in Bioremediation Projects
Spencer is currently researching the potential of fungi to help save the Arizona rivers from invasive Tamarisk shrubs. Tamarisk is a highly damaging species that increases topsoil salinity, accelerating erosion and pushing out native species like Cottonwood, Creosote, and Mesquite.
