Our small batch Good News Granola has goodness inside the bag and “wisdom” outside with positive thoughts and kind words on the back label.

Tell us about your business.

Over the years my husband and I have lived in cities around the world - New York City, London & Sydney...just to name a few. I love the city but after our first son was born, I was determined to move our family to a "farm" in the country. I wanted to “live the good life”…have some chickens, grow some vegetables...and start my own baking business. After years of talking and many months of searching, David and I found our dream farm early in 2012. Located near Charlottesville, Virginia, our 1830s farmhouse used to be a B&B and has one very important feature: a commercial kitchen. I could finally start the bakery I had been dreaming of for years! The commercial kitchen has been turned into HQ for the Hudson Henry Baking Co. where we happily bake our Good News Granola. Each batch of granola is handcrafted with care and packaged in bags with positive thoughts and kind words on the back label. It truly is good news in the morning! {And, of course, absolutely delicious!}

What makes your business stand out?

Our small batch Good News Granola has goodness inside the bag and “wisdom” outside with positive thoughts and kind words on the back label. This testimonial says it best: “I just got a bag of your delicious granola. I am absolutely ADDICTED!!! Other than the granola being wonderful, I absolutely love your message on the back of the bag. It is incredibly refreshing to see a message of kindness on product packaging. You have a new customer for life.” - Shannon, Richmond
