Originally a side hustle, Fernweh Food Co. has turned into a dream realized.
Founder Ashley Lance began making her own food in 2015 for bike tours and backpacking trips because she values knowing what she's putting into her body. On these adventures, Ashley found that her fellow travelers were eager to try what she had made. With some encouragement from friends and her partner, she decided to give this side hustle a chance to be the real deal.
Since Ashley began adventuring, she found the abundance of packaging and garbage piling up at trailhead trash cans and out in the wilderness to be disheartening. In an effort to be a part of the solution, Ashley wanted to make this company as earth-conscious as possible. Taking a cue from the three R's, Fernweh Food Co. is doing its part to reduce the amount of single use plastics going into the wild by utilizing packaging that is 100% reusable. They cut down on food waste and lessen their carbon footprint by using produce that is local and seasonal.
