Near death experiences always lead to a riveting story. Less often do they launch a business. In the case of 88 Acres both are true.
Nicole and Rob were newly dating when cross-contamination at a restaurant landed the couple in the hospital. Rob's nut allergy had triggered a severe allergic reaction that nearly cost him his life. Fortunately their romance survived the episode. Later as the pair trained for a triathlon the absence of nut-free, nutrient dense snacks became clear to Nicole so she began baking craft seed bars they both could enjoy. When vegan and fitness-focused friends began placing orders, Nicole knew she was onto something. Named for the organic (88-acre) farm Nicole grew up on in North Brookfield, MA, 88 Acres launched with a line of craft seed bars made with simple, wholesome ingredients and free of the top nine food allergens. In 2016 they introduced seed butters to the line-up and boy are we smitten. All 88 Acres products are vegan, gluten-free, and non-GMO.
