Sean and Katy Grant are the new owners of Aficionado Farms. Their fields are located in Elberfeld and they grow both vegetable and microgreens using beyond organic practices.Both were raised in Southern Indiana and have always wanted to grow food not only for their family, which includes 1 year old, Garrett, but to offer their produce to the community. The Grant’s began their love for fresh produce 3 years ago when they formed Grant’s Greens, and sold both exotic and heirloom microgreens in Southern Indiana. Now they have combined those greens with produce that include heirloom tomatoes, bell peppers, jalapeno peppers, eggplant, salad mixes, kale, spinach, melons, fresh cut flowers, and herbs, to name a few. Their produce can be found in various grocery stores and even in local schools. This is their first year at the Historic Newburgh Farmer’s Market, and both couldn’t be more excited to join such a wonderful community event.
Kara Snow started Snow Bird Granola in November of 2014 with very few expectations, lots of fear, and unending support from family and friends. Kara has a B.S. in Dietetics, so she’s very passionate about food and nutrition. Kara also loves the Lord and making others smile, and it has been such a blessing for her to see all these passions join together to create Snow Bird Granola. Kara says the Lord’s hand has been all over this adventure, and truly none of it would be possible without Him.
Food allergies also hold a special place in her heart because several of her loved ones have been impacted by them. Kara says she never wants anyone to feel turned away from Snow Bird Granola because of a food allergy, so she’s happy to accommodate any food allergy. She also has experience working with individuals with gluten, dairy, whey, and nut allergies, and she would love to create something special for anyone to enjoy.
Kara is also very passionate about giving back. 10% of each granola order goes toward Feed My Starving Children (FMSC). FMSC is a non-profit, Christian organization that provides nutritious meal packages to malnourished men, women, and children around the world.
