Kite Hill is the first and only company to create plant-based dairy products that marry proprietary know-how with traditional techniques. We’ve figured out how to make buttery fresh ricotta, aged nut milk cheeses, creamy almond milk yogurt and fantastic entrees all out of fresh nut milk.
Today, Kite Hill represents much more than artisanal almond milk products. Kite Hill stands for the very best tasting alternative dairy products made with the simplest ingredients using traditional methods — from artisanal delicacies, nut milk yogurts, and cream cheese style spreads to entrées and even desserts.
Hand-crafted the "old-fashioned way"- the way nature intended- Health-Ade does everything possible to guarantee the best brew out there, including (but not limited to): produced in an all-glass process to ensure no plastic/metal leaching, ferment in super-small batches (2.5 gallons!) to allow for premium control over quality, and flavor only with raw cold-pressed juice from organic produce. We never come close to using fake fermentation agents, flavorings, or chemicals, and rely heavily on nature, not dollars, to decide when the product is ready.
Chef’s Cut Real Jerky was created by Chef Blair Swiler and Dennis Riedel. Blair has been smoking meats his entire life; a tradition passed along from his father. In 2009, becoming tired of having to buy terrible jerky every time they played a round of 18, golf buddies, Blair and Dennis, teamed up and began smoking and selling Chef’s Cut to golf and country clubs across the US (turns out jerky is the perfect golf bag accessory). Today the vision to change the jerky world has resulted in the best tasting, highest quality jerky on the market.

Just like many pre-prohibition ciders, Austin Eastciders has selected apples from Europe and Washington State. To preserve freshness, the fruits are harvested and pressed at the orchard, then delivered to our cidery in Austin, Texas. These apple varieties have the bittersharp and bittersweet components that bring character to this drink. Only the finest apples can create the best cider. With this base of un-compromised fruit, they use a white wine yeast which has been selected for aromatic retention and slow, cold fermentation tolerance. This helps preserve the natural, fruity nose and complex flavor you experience when enjoying this drink.
