It all started with a honeymoon to New Zealand. Over the course of 6 weeks of hiking and camping, a nourishing breakfast became extra important. Muesli became a staple, and breakfast became more than a meal. It was a time - a time spent together, reflecting, refueling and planning our next adventure. Not long after returning home, we were craving a simpler life and that New Zealand-style muesli. When we could not find a good muesli option in stores, Hannah did her best to replicate the recipe in our tiny New York apartment. It turned out too good to keep to ourselves, so after moving home to Minnesota, we decided to share it with others. Our first bag of muesli was sold at a Minneapolis farmer's market in the Summer of 2011. For the next few years, Hannah bootstrapped the business with an old Raleigh bike and trailer, a friend’s restaurant kitchen and a basement office. Our family and business have grown quite a bit since then, but these humble roots continue to shape our business today.
We are out to flip the breakfast aisle on its head. In a space dominated by big companies producing sugary, float-in-your-milk cereals, we are providing something completely different - minimally processed whole grains, nuts and seeds sweetened only with fruit and organic honey. Real food prepared simply, the way nature intended. Along the way we hope to inspire a simpler and healthier way of eating and living.
Scientifically brewed, artfully crafted.
Northstar Kombucha is the elegant fusion of food science and graphic design—our expertise and passion. With meticulous attention to detail, we blend our tart kombucha tea with fragrant herbs and sweet fruit juices to achieve a perfect balance of flavors in every bottle. We carefully brew and nurture each small batch of our kombucha tea using organic ingredients to create an effervescent probiotic drink that is also low in sugar. Bottled in amber glass to help protect the probiotics, Northstar Kombucha is designed to look as great as it tastes.
Kitchen Space Kids
Kitchen Space kids is a cooking school based on the fundamental idea that children learn best when they are allowed to do it themselves. What we offer is unique; a hands-on introduction to cooking, the kitchen and the basic equipment used to prepare simple, wholesome meals.
In our four-part series classes, your child will prepare one meal each week: breakfast, lunch, dinner and dessert completely from scratch using only whole, natural and organic ingredients.
In all of our classes we introduce concepts such as organic ingredients, buying local, and growing our own food. We share our thoughts on the importance of cooking at home and spending time at the table.
You can help support what your child learned by asking questions about the recipe, how it was made or encouraging them to make it again with your family.
We also offer specialty classes and birthday parties where we practice the same principles but with a theme and a shorter format.
