As I walk into the office of First Field Jersey Ketchup in Princeton, New Jersey, a collection of glass jars lining the windowsill catches my eye. These are no ordinary jars, but a collection of antique ketchup bottles sprinkled in between books like Tomatoland: How Modern Industrial Agriculture Destroyed Our Most Alluring Fruit. Hanging on the walls are paintings of the company’s logo and various fruits created by a family member. They are reminiscent of American Watercolorist Charles Demuth and pop with intensity, color, and texture (I secretly want a print for my office). There is a passion in the air and a commitment to build community as Patrick Leger tells me, “We’re not trying to do anything new, we’re […]

Nuts About Granola began four and half years ago as a fundraising project by local Elizabethtown College alum Sarah Lanphier. Sarah and her business moved from school project to storefront in 2012. The company is currently baking twice a week and plans to expand into a […]
