Our Story

Karibu! (that’s welcome in swahili)!

A native from Kenya, Billy moved to Minnesota when he was just 3 years old. From a very young age, Billy knew that when he grew older he wanted to find a way to give back to his country of origin but did not know how he would do that. Fast forward to his mid twenties he met and married the woman of his dreams, Me (Megan), and through my interest in nutrition and love for making homemade peanut butter the social business idea was born!

The goal we are pursuing is to positively impact the lives of as many Kenyans as we possibly can by financially supporting nonprofits already doing amazing work on the ground in Kenya with 50% of our net profits. This year we are partnering with Freely in Hope! Check out our “Partners” page to learn more about the impact they are making. 

 

In 2017, we began processing and selling our nut butter at various Minneapolis Farmers Markets but had to close our doors in August of 2017 due to moving to Chicago. We restarted in February 2018 in Chicago selling online and out of Lakeview Kitchen and Market. Check out our “Find us/contact” page to see which Farmers Markets we will be at this year!
