Company Summary

The most productive plant species in the U.S. have been declared invasive. Yet with proper land management, these untapped resources can become food, medicine, fiber, and fuel. By pioneering in the field of restorative agriculture, our company is innovating sustainable solutions to big problems and opening new avenues of profitability. Our flagship product, the Autumn Berry, serves to remind us how sweet "invasive" can be.

    Dustin went into the woods to get some space. He found a lot of tasty berries. He researched them and then developed systems to harvest, process, and distribute them as a healthy ingredient to various local food producers. He loves thinking outside of the box and inventing new solutions for the problems he sees.
