Brittany Anderson, hailing from The Garden State, has been working with and around farm fresh produce all her life. "It was always the joy of summer- smelling the fresh tomatoes and sharing the vegetables I grew." Brittany earned a BA from Cedar Crest College and entered the corporate world. After spending 5 years in office buildings and busy highways, Brittany and her husband, Bodhi, decided to make the move to Hawaii. "We'd been coming here for 6 years and every time we left I cried. But as soon as we were back in Hawaii we knew this was home." Brittany has been working at the Hilo Farmer's Market and has used her time there to form connections with the local producers. "I love going to the market and hearing about what everyone's making or growing." Brittany hopes to extend her love of local produce to customers each week. Brittany has recently been accepted as a Sweat Pink Ambassador, promoting a healthy lifestyle for women all over the world.
Bodhi Anderson is a Physician Assistant currently working in Keaau and Pahoa. However, he used to be one of two medical providers in the Ka'u district. Traveling each day across jungle and lava fields gave him plenty of time to listen to books on tape. Two of those books, In Defense of Food and The Omnivores Dilemma, made him think," Why am I settling for the ease of processed food?" Bodhi approached his wife, Brittany, with the ideas presented in both books. He found that she too was frustrated with what and the way they were eating. Bodhi had been interested in engaging his patients in ways to eat healthy to avoid/treat some of the most common ailments on the island. Bodhi hopes that in starting this business they can offer sustainable healthy options that keeps people out of his waiting room and promote a healthier lifestyle.
