Seed + Mill Organic Tahini
Tahini is made of ground sesame seeds. People often call it sesame butter because of its rich and silky texture. After roasting the sesame seeds they are ground in small batches to produce an irresistible paste – known as tahini - which can be devoured all on its own, whipped into a dip, added to smoothies, baked into treats, or drizzled over just about anything.

ARISE Basil Olive Oil by Brightland

ARISE is lovingly blended with basil and hand-picked heirloom Arbosana olives and is harvested early by a master miller onsite in a certified organic mill. ARISE's label was crafted in collaboration with New York-based renowned fashion designer and artist (and Feedfeed community member!) Peter Som, and was inspired by blooming of spring produce and warm-weather entertaining. Som’s use of Warhol-style flowers with heavy shadows, signature to his work in fashion, reinforce a sense of movement and arising.
