hOMe Grown’s Pioneer Shani Cranston, created these Whole Food snacks as part of her own healing journey…..
hOMe Grown Living Foods was founded in 2008 with a passion to provide nutrient dense, organic, sprouted, raw, plant-based, gluten & grain free, ketogenic snacks to fuel an active lifestyle.
Based in the Cowichan Valley on Vancouver Island, we make all our products by hand in small batches on our Land. Staying immersed in nature allows our inspirations to flow into the finished product. We hope you can taste Love & Gratitude in every bite.
In her early 30s, Shani was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes. Being a health advocate her entire life, this condition encouraged a deeper understanding of the alchemy of food and how it affects our bodies.
As an avid surfer, yogi and outdoor enthusiast, she was on the search for healthy on-the-go snacks and couldn’t find anything that met her dietary needs. This lead to the birth of hOMe Grown Living Foods.
Stable blood sugar is her top priority and hOMe Grown was created with this in mind.
Shani’s inherent entrepreneurial spirit was nurtured through her international surf & yoga company providing hands-on experience nourishing herself and others. This is the foundation from which hOMe Grown Living Foods was born in the old Tool Shed on their farm in 2008.
Together with her partner Willy McBride, Shani has slowly grown the product line, while Willy has built and configured every corner of the production facility. They have an inspired team that works hard to bring you this exciting delicious snack food line.
SLOW & LOW is one of the core values at hOMe Grown. This Permeates their processes ~ Dehydrated at Low Temperatures for many hours, as well as their business model ~ Low overhead and Slowly adding 1 Shipping Container at a time to their hOMe based Facility.
As Shani says, “When you the world hands you lemons, make the best homemade, sugar-free probiotic lemonade and share it with the world!”
