Happy Holidays!

Posted on: December 9th, 2013 by fara

Have a great holiday season!  Don’t forget to help out those less fortunate during this season of giving.

You can help your community through direct donations to charity or by donating your time as a volunteer.

Tomorrow, December 10th is Colorado Gives Day when your donation dollar will mean the most to participating Colorado based charities.  Last year, Coloradans made an astonishing show of support for local nonprofits by donating $15.4 million in just 24 hours. A total of $15.7 million was distributed to the nonprofits, thanks to additional contributions from the FirstBank Incentive Fund and 36 cash prizes.  Colorado Kombucha fans can learn more by visiting the website HERE.

 

If you know someone who’s health is not as good as it could be, give them the gift of High Country Kombucha and encourage them to boost the probiotic content in their digestive system.  What could be more jolly?

Two recent articles in the Vail Daily

Posted on: January 15th, 2013 by fara

The employees of High Country Kombucha live, work & play in the Vail valley in Eagle County, Colorado.  This is not a cheap place to live, or to own a business but we do have some great perks like a valley wide newspaper that runs occasional stories about local businesses.  Check out the latest article about High Country Kombucha by clicking HERE

The second article in the Vail Daily reviewed functional beverages as a category and you can link to that article HERE

We agree that drinking sodas is ‘so last decade’ and want to point out that kombucha tea has more probiotic content than most yogurt found on the shelves.  We want to thank the Vail Daily for the exposure and hope that it encourages many who read it to try our High Country brand of kombucha tea.

Go Broncos!  Don’t miss the divisional playoff madness this Saturday afternoon at 2:30 PM in Denver.  If you can’t go in person then be glued to the set or cheering them on at your favorite sports bar.

Vegan Brunch in Denver

Posted on: November 27th, 2012 by fara

The Nooch Market at 3360 Larimer is having a vegan brunch on Sunday, December 2nd from 11 AM to 2 PM.

High Country Kombucha will be available & we hope that not only vegans will attend.  Come for the healthy, probiotic drink and stay for the delicious vegan meal.  Don’t tell my local organic livestock farmer I said so, but aren’t we all at least a little vegan-curious?  Live the dream and try a vegan meal, you may end up a convert or you may just join the Meatless Mondays movement sweeping the nation.  Either way we hope to see many of you there!

Huge props go out to plantsanimals.org & Hood Lab for supporting the Neat Market.  Hood Lab may be the new “go to” location for the Neat Market so keep you eyes peeled for the next one.  We hope to see you there!

Prop 37 Failed but NonGMO Movement Benefits

Posted on: November 8th, 2012 by fara

Recently High Country Kombucha obtained the NonGMO Project Verified seal for all of our products.  We were excited to see Prop 37 on the ballot for California this year and hope that more states take initiative when it comes to this subject of citizens having the right to know what’s in the products we consume.

Unfortunately, Californians did not vote to approve Proposition 37 but awareness of the NonGMO movement has increased so much that it can hardly be considered a failure.

Thanks to the $46 million dollars spent by chemical companies to defeat proposition 37 in California, more Americans know more now about GMOs than ever before.

61 countries around the world now require GMO labeling and many ban GMOs outright including most European Union countries.  The United States is far behind the progress made elsewhere on this issue of  nutrition & health but we are moving forward.  Keep fighting the good fight and don’t be an experiment.

Wise Traditions 2012

Posted on: October 24th, 2012 by fara

 

The Weston A Price Foundation is holding their annual  conference November 8 through 12 and High Country Kombucha is a sponsor.  We will have items to include in the goody bags and plenty of tea on tap throughout the conference.

The Weston A. Price Foundation supports a diet that includes raw milk, butter & cheese.  If you never had raw butter I highly recommend giving it a try since it is both creamy & delicious.

The foundation also supports including fermented foods in your diet for optimal nutrition.  What’s more fermented and healthy then High Country Kombucha?

wild root

Consumption of organ tissues, farm fresh eggs and saturated fats is also encouraged, which means that on this diet you can eat bacon & who doesn’t like bacon?

Here is a small excerpt from the Weston A Price Foundation website;

“The discoveries and conclusions of Dr. Price are presented in his classic volume, Nutrition and Physical Degeneration. The book contains striking photographs of handsome, healthy primitive people and illustrates in an unforgettable way the physical degeneration that occurs when human groups abandon nourishing traditional diets in favor of modern convenience foods.”

At High Country Kombucha, we believe our tea is a great addition to any diet or lifestyle.   The probiotic content found in every bottle promotes good digestion and a healthy immune system.  We are especially proud to be chosen as a preferred beverage by the Weston A. Price Foundation.  We hope to see some of you at the conference next month.
