Southern supplier stories.
Although these aren’t the only southern suppliers we work with, we chose a few to demonstrate the high quality you can find right here within our region.
When exercise and wellness enthusiast Arden Zinn bought the juicer she had always wanted in 1995, she called her friends and offered to make them juice for free. Increased demand led to the founding of Arden’s Garden. Now, over two decades later, the company’s products are sold in 7 states. They are committed to the belief that fresh juices and plant-based foods make you feel good from the inside out. They use real fruits and vegetables and no preservatives, concentrates, flavorings, artificial ingredients, or added sugar.
In the early 1900s, Charlie Brooks and his son Dick started growing avocados, grapefruit, limes, and mangos in the subtropical climate just south of Miami. In 1928, Dick rode to New York City inside a refrigerated truck filled with Florida avocados to make sure the fruit would arrive fresh. That journey opened up new markets for the farm. In the 1960s, Pal Brooks followed his father into the farming business. Today, Pal Brooks and Greg Smith oversee operations that grow premium tropical fruits in Florida.

Funky Buddha Brewery†

Richmond and West Creek, Virginia
This brewery was co-founded by Eric McKay and Patrick Murtaugh. They focus on local sourcing and are inspired by the surrounding climate, agriculture, and community. They take great pride in supporting local growers, brewing with Virginia ingredients, and highlighting an eclectic variety of flavors. They have brewed with Virginia-sourced hops, malted barley, blackberries, raspberries, blueberries, pumpkins, peaches, honey, ginger, herbs, and spices, as well as locally roasted coffee beans. Hardywood is also focused on environmental preservation. The brewery is powered entirely by renewable energy, including solar, biomass, and wind, through the Dominion Virginia Green Power Program.

Monday Night Brewing†
Owners Jeff Heck, Jonathan Baker, and Joel Iverson started brewing beer together on Monday nights in 2006. Friends, neighbors, and even strangers started joining them in their driveway to brew and socialize. At that time, the three future founders had day jobs and would ceremoniously loosen their ties on Monday evenings before brewing each week's batch. Though beer quickly became more than just a weeknight hobby, the loosened necktie has remained with their brand through the years as a symbol of making every day (not just weekends) exceptional.

Brothers Kellan and Davin Bartosch returned to their hometown of Memphis to found Wiseacre in 2013.

Wiseacre also participates in efforts to protect the Memphis Sands Aquifer, the waters of which are used in Tiny Bomb.
