To Your Health Sprouted Flour Company in Fitzpatrick Alabama is the recipient of the Alabama Launchpad 2015 award for Outstanding Achievement in Innovative Manufacturing.
These awards will be presented at Alabama Launchpad’s annual Innovation event, September 2 in Birmingham.
Today’s guest is Peggy Sutton, who co-founded To Your Health Sprouted Flour Company with her husband and they’ve grown the business from a kitchen startup to a major economic force in Bullock County, with more than 30 employees.
Founder Peggy Sutton shares her entrepreneurial journey with To Your Health Sprouted Flour Company, how the company has grown, and how its product line fits into the rapidly growing global market for real food.
I’m a big proponent of eating real food and believe that real food–like organic sprouted grains–is a linchpin in solving two major problems in Alabama: Chronic disease and also rural economic development.
Thanks to the willing support of her co-founder husband, Peggy's company is now sprouting 10,000 pounds of grains and legumes each day and serves a global market.
You can purchase To Your Health Sprouted Flour Co. products through the company's website.
This interview will also be published on the Shine Springs Farm Shinecast and the Discover Grow Shinecast. If you want to learn more about how to prepare real food and real food fits into a healthy, happy life I hope you'll check out my latest podcast, the Discover Grow Shinecast, and my soon-to-be-released ebook, 7 Days of real Food.
