Andrea Wells started Wells Made Co. as a made to order seed butter business out of her home in early 2016. Her mission was to create only seed butters for children with nut allergens. That mission has grown to include bringing awareness of how a few simple ingredients can have a positive impact on health and taste buds.
They source the ingredients locally as much as possible from farmers and artisans in Louisville and surrounding areas. Sustainable packaging is necessary and relevant to community, so they only use glass jars.
Working in small batches ensures higher quality and requires lots of love and dedication. They never compromise when it comes to ingredients, offering wholesome food that is clean and simple. Many flavors are packed with protein, potassium and good fats.
All the flavors are vegan. Andrea purchases maple syrup and sorghum from Kentucky farmers to use in her Cashew Butter and Buckwheat Granola. A local coffee shop’s espresso beans are used in the Hazelnut Butter.
She says she’s are on a mission to sensibly feed the world one healthy spoon at a time.
The processing is minimal. At the start of creating the flavors, she first makes sure that every surface, utensil and jar is clean. She cleans her jars the night before production to ensure that water is not present.
All the seeds and nuts are roasted first, but not in the same batch. Some of the ingredients, such as figs and dates, are chopped by hand. The whole pepper corns are ground with a mortar and pestle for the Cashew Black Pepper Butter.
Once everything is roasted, cut, ground, and blended together; the butters are put into jars once the mixture reaches optimal temperature. Lastly, once cooled, the labels are applied and a delicious butter is ready for you! She also makes delicious roasted nuts and the rosemary almonds are a favorite! https://wellsmadeco.com/shop/
