Meet the Maker
Mark Overbay had his first lesson in handcrafting nut butter while living in rural Zimbabwe as a Peace Corps volunteer -- and try as he might when he returned home, he couldn't replicate the flavor with anything store bought.

A fruitful company that believes food should be delicious, nutritious, and good for all those involved in producing it.View Full Profile
