Grounded Goods is a brand new subscription box that offers products sourced from farms and companies that are committed to regenerative farming.
Each box will feature an assortment of items whose raw ingredients were grown on regenerative farms — which help to restore ecosystems and slow down climate change. You can expect to receive hand-selected products such as artisan made food and snacks, coffee, tea, chocolate, body care products, household goods, and more. When you sign up, you’ll have the option of customizing your box for a vegan, vegetarian, or omnivore diet. Grounded Goods kindly donates 5% of their profits to support farmers transitioning to regenerative growing practices.

Let’s see what’s in the February 2018 Grounded Goods box!
Everything was shipped in a brown box with the Grounded Goods logo on top.
A peek inside!
An info sheet revealed February’s theme — “Brunch”! It also listed all of the items with brief descriptions and details on what makes each of them regenerative.
Bongo Java Honduras Coffee (~$10)
This single origin coffee is sourced from a farmer cooperative in Honduras and is imported by Coop Coffees, a green coffee cooperative that supports fair trade relationships with small-scale farming families. I haven’t brewed any yet, but according to the label these organic beans have tasting notes of blackberry, graham, and green apple.
Almond butter! — I’m always happy to see this in subscription boxes, especially since it can be so pricey. 😉 This particular brand uses unpasteurized, raw almonds from Spain which have been grown using dry-farming, a traditional water-sustainable/regionally-appropriate approach to almond agriculture. Sprouting the almonds makes them sweeter, more digestible, and more nutritious. Along with the sprouted almonds, this also contains organic coconut oil, organic vanilla extract, and ancient seabed salt. It’s unpasteurized, non-GMO, raw, vegan, and gluten-free.
Kernza Flour Pancake Mix (~$10?)
This pancake mix features Kernza — a newly developed perennial grain developed by The Land Institute in Kansas. Unlike traditional wheat, Kernza has permanent roots that go deep into the soil where it stores carbon. Since there’s no need to till and disturb the soil as with annual grains, Kernza allows for much more carbon storage and better soil health. To whip up a fresh batch of these pancakes, simply combine the dry mix with milk, eggs, and butter.
Located just northeast of San Francisco, Frog Hollow Farm is a 143-acre organic farm that builds soil with organic methods including its on-farm compost operation. This peach conserve is made with juicy organic peaches and sweetened with organic sugar. Enjoy it with pancakes, yogurt, or even as a topping for ice cream.
I really enjoyed the debut box from Grounded Goods! They included a great selection of items for whipping up an eco-conscious, vegan-friendly brunch. All of the products were from completely new-to-me brands, which is always a plus. 🙂 — Remember, if you’d like to subscribe you can save 10% on your first month with coupon code “ROSEBUD10OFF“!
