Superfood Company Opens in Sisters

Superfood Company Headed By Surfer Laird Hamilton Opens in Sisters

When you’re a world-class athlete you look for every edge you can find to push yourself to the next level.

Legendary surfer Laird Hamilton found one of his edges with a homemade creamer that he added to his daily diet, for an added natural boost of energy during the day.

Paul Hodge, CEO of Laird Superfood, had recently moved to Sisters and once he sold Hamilton on the idea that the creamer was the foundation for a new health food company, he also pitched the Central Oregon community as the place to locate the headquarters of the new venture.

For business leaders in Sisters, the question wasn’t if Laird Superfood was a good fit for the community, but how fast could they make it happen.

Sisters officials are hoping that Laird Superfood is the first wave of a rising tide of new businesses in their community.

Origin Story: Birdseed Food Co

In this week’s Origin Story, where we meet people who have turned their passion into a profession, Allison Roecker introduces us to Ashley Chase.

When Ashley Chase was 24 years old, she only had half the amount of blood in her body that a healthy adult female should have. Her mind was constantly foggy and she was only living her life at half of her potential. The culprit of these ailments? Gluten.

Now, Ashley is redefining what healthy foods are with her brand of homemade granola. Birdseed granola can be found all over Central Oregon in grocery stores like Newport Avenue Market and Market of Choice, coffee shops like Spoken Moto and Jackson’s Corner, and many other places.

You can follow Birdseed Food Co on social media at @birdseedfoodco, or online at birdseedfoodco.com.
