Makers to Love
At Batch & Bodega we’re proud to support a diverse group of maker partners that raise the bar on generosity, sustainability, and community involvement. Read on to learn more about how they’re contributing to a better (and tastier!) world for all of us.
Big Spoon Roaster’s sustainability promise means using every last drop of nut butter they create. Made with small amounts of surplus nut butter from the end of each batch run, their Community Blend combines harmonious recipes into new, delicious blends that they jar, label, and donate to local 501 C-3 charities and hunger relief organizations like Durham Urban Ministries, TROSA, Food Bank of Central & Eastern North Carolina, YMCA, and Durham Free Lunch, among others.
Mustard + Co.’s founding company is Locivore which builds and promotes thoughtful, unadulterated, local food chains. Locivore also supports FARESTART which is helping to feed communities in need during COVID-19.
Big Heart Tea features plastic-free, non-toxic compostable tea bags and packaging.
Hayden Flour Mills prides themselves on never bleaching or enriching their grains. Their flour is simply stone-milled: an old-world process that allows the flavor and personality of the wheat to shine through. Customers who had sworn off gluten (over-processed, bleached flours) for good, tell HFM that they can eat our grains and flours without issue!
Little Apple Treats sources sustainably-grown almonds, pecans, and walnuts directly from Californian and Texan farmers.
The team at Poppy works hard to use only the finest ingredients available, sourced as locally as possible. Poppy’s popcorn is non-GMO, all-natural, free of any artificial flavors/colors/dyes and handcrafted with love in small batches.
At Runamok Maple, we believe protecting the land is our first priority. Good maple syrup depends on healthy trees and so we endeavor to treat the land we work on gently, protecting the soil, and encouraging biodiversity with as little impact as possible. Because of our efforts, we are certified organic by the Northeastern Organic Farmers Association and Bird-Friendly by the National Audubon Society.
