So I've been in this game for nearly 20 years now. Right from the beginning I've had a small line of seasonings. I pretty much only sold them at Farmers Markets, Festivals, Craft Fairs, etc. In other words only at places where I was present. I think I may have originally offered them to retailers at first but they were never really a priority to me. They aren't pleasant to make...sneezing, eyes burning...stuff like that. They weren't something I really wanted to be making all the time.
I originally had 4 blends. I did always get positive feedback on them. Especially the Southwest Seasoning. Somewhere along the line I made this product available as a private label item to a customer that has absolutely run with it and I have made thousands of jars of this stuff for them. Looks like that arrangement is coming to an end for a bunch of different reasons but I'll speak more on that matter at some later date. So although I still don't want to be making these all the time, it's obvious that there is a big demand for this type of product. So while I still don't want to put these seasonings in retail stores I am making them available on my website.
The new ones are pretty much all developed to use the garlic that I grow myself and purchase from garlic farmers in the area. Tryin to keep it local.
Something I would like feedback on though....packaging is well unreliablle I think. I get the jars from Dollarama...haha. All my jars in one basket. If anyone has ideas...I'd love to hear em.
