We are an urban farming family who has been growing and selling beautiful heirloom vegetables and fresh herbs since 2008. As is common among farmers, we often find ourselves bursting with produce during harvest season. We do not want to waste all of our hard work. So a few years ago we began dehydrating things that did not sell at market. At first we just wanted to make spices for ourselves. Then, since the timing was right, we decided to give spices as Christmas gifts. This is what led us to our name "Solstice Spices" because we live by the cycles of the sun and Christmastime, to us, is the celebration of the Winter Solstice.
As time went by, we received a lot of positive feedback and "can I have another jar of spices this year?" So we starting buying produce from our farming friends who also had more than they knew what to do with. In 2013 we created our logo and labels and began selling our spices to the public.
