Starvation Alley is rooted in the celebration of food and grounded in respect for the people and places that grow it. The country road leading to our bogs was playfully named Starvation Alley during the Great Depression. While it was true the community had little financial means, they ate well by foraging, farming, and living in harmony with the land. This “tide’s out, table’s set" mentality still describes our close relationship to our local environment. We know that taking on the role of farmer is taking on the role of steward. And we believe organic growing practices are essential to the health of the land. Land that, if respected and cared for, will keep us well fed for generations to come.
As we grow our juice company and need to source organic berries beyond what we’re able to grow ourselves, farmers are joining us in transitioning to organic. Buying Starvation Alley products encourages even more to join us. By growing organically, one hundred pounds of synthetic chemicals are kept out of the local watershed per one acre bog, per year.
