Toffee Season ends soon!

 


This notice is for all you Toffee Lovers out there!

Terry and I wanted to remind everyone that our Oh My Goddess! Butter Crunch Toffee season will be ending soon.  If you are thinking about one last taste of our delectable organic toffee, now is the time!  The final day to order toffee for both home delivery in the Twin Cities Metro, or for mail delivery, will be Sunday, April 17th. 

There will be NO EXCEPTIONS! 

Please be advised that ANY toffee orders received AFTER April 17th will be held until October when we start up production again for the Fall/Holiday season. Please be mindful of the date so that you are not disappointed!

After that date, we will be spending our time fulfilling those orders so that we can get that tasty goodness out to you as soon as possible.

Toffee Lover?  Don't miss out.  You know what to do! 

Blessings!

Terry and Nehemiah

A note to our customers regarding shipping of our Wild Rice Bread

 




For the last few years, Winter Goddess Foods has made our Traditional Wild Rice Bread available to folks throughout the United States for their enjoyment.  It provides us with much joy to know that folks all over the country love this bread, and we are humbled by the recognition.

Regrettably, due to the politicization of the United States Postal Service, and its subsequent and dramatic increase in the price of shipping, AND its delays in delivery time, Terry and I have made the decision to no longer accept orders of our Wild Rice Bread for shipping.  Not only has the price hike made shipping non-sustainable for our company, but more importantly, we need our product to arrive at our customer's homes as fresh as possible.  The current climate at the Postal Service has made this impossible to do, especially for our friends in both the East and West Coasts.  Unfortunately, this situation also affects our in-state customers in Minnesota who are outside of our Twin Cities delivery radius.  

Please rest assured, however, that this announcement only applies to our Wild Rice Bread.  Our other products remain available for shipping throughout the country as always.

Terry and I have wrestled with this decision for months, but unfortunately, the postal service has forced our hand in this matter.  We sincerely regret any inconvenience this decision may cause you, our valued customer.  

Sincerely,

Nehemiah and Terry

A little Housekeeping

 


 It has been a while since I have updated our site, what with assisting Terry through her health issues and trying to keep our business running smoothly during a pandemic and the aftermath of the George Floyd murder.  What initially started as a challenge turned into a labor of love, and a drop load of blessings from The Great Spirit.

We are having a wonderful time seeing our customers and Peeps at the Midtown Farmers Market adjacent to Moon Palace Books on Hiawatha Avenue in South Minneapolis.  The market has had a remarkable effect on the community as we go through rebuilding, and it has become a powerful force for good as we are all pulling together to make sure that everyone has a safe and fun shopping experience.  Terry and I love to see the smiles on people's faces as they walk away from our table clutching their muffins, scones, or bag of Aww Nuts that they can't wait to tear into.  Over the years we have received so many compliments on our products from market customers, and honestly, it is both uplifting and humbling. The Midtown Farmers Market will forever be near and dear to our hearts.



One of our biggest blessings this year has been welcoming Arbeiter Brewing Company as one of our new favorite wholesale partners.  Garth and the crew at Arbeiter brew some of the most unique and flavorful beer that I have come across in a long time.  Not only that, but they are such warm and fun people to be around.  With their positive work ethic, they can't help but brew some of the tastiest beers in Minnesota.  And what pairs up well with beer?  Our Aww Nuts, of course!  They have quickly become a brewery favorite among the customers, causing me to work even harder to keep them in stock.  (Remember, this IS a labor of Love!)  If you are looking for a delicious beer that's a little off the beaten path, you owe it to yourself to give Arbeiter a try.  They are located at 3038 Minnehaha Avenue right next to Moon Palace Books and the Midtown Farmers Market.  Tell 'em Nehemiah sent you!


Another of our new wholesale partners is Tare Market, Minnesota's FIRST zero-waste shop.  At Tare Market, their goal is to provide eco-friendly products and educational resources that will help you live a more sustainable, zero-waste lifestyle! Translation: Like Winter Goddess Foods, Tare Market strives to think globally while acting locally by providing products and advice to help you reduce both plastic and paper waste, and your carbon footprint around your home.  Tare has partnered with Winter Goddess Foods to offer our Aww Nuts! Slow Burn nut mix in bulk at their store, and the customer response has been ecstatic!  What's really cool about this shop is the fact that for every product purchased online, Tare Market plants a tree.  In fact, as of today, they have planted a total of 2,953 trees and counting. Annie, Danae, and the wonderful staff at Tare are truly doing their part to improve the environment.  The shop is located at 2717 E. 38th Street in South Minneapolis.

Last but definitely not least, Winter Goddess Foods has partnered up with Brand Builders by KLC, a consulting company for mission-driven natural product brands. Our brand will be featured at their Brand Builders Market at Keg and Case in St. Paul, MN starting Friday, October 1st (tomorrow). This means we’ll have access to exclusive opportunities to help us grow and expand our product line and customer base - all in the effort of furthering our mission of offering folks a "better" alternative to the chemically laden treats and snacks that have flooded our supermarkets and club warehouses.

Terry and I want to offer a shout-out to @Kate.LaBrosse and the team at @BrandBuildersByKLC and @KegAndCaseMN for offering our company this opportunity!

Whew!  That's a LOT going on, but there's more coming on the horizon.  We just can't talk about it yet! 😁 Suffice it to say that Terry and I are excited for what’s ahead, and we hope you are too!  

Please, stay safe, do all the COVID preventative things, and be kind to your fellow humans.

Peace,
Nehemiah

The Winter Goddess is Back!

 


                                                     The Winter Goddess is BACK!  


We are very happy to let you know that after dealing with medical issues and surgery, Terry is back in good health, and is chomping at the bit to bake again!  It has been a long road, but as of today, we are fully back in business, and the website is up for orders.  For our customers in the Twin Cities Metro area, Your Daily Bread is back as well.  Twin Cities residents, please check the Your Daily Bread tab for more information.

Being away from doing what we love has been difficult for us both.  

When you spend your time engrossed in the business of making tasty organic products for people, you don't exactly spend your time thinking, "What would we do if THIS happens?"  Terry's hiatus made us both realize and appreciate the things that are most important to us, namely our Spirituality, our health, and doing our best to help others and make people happy. Winter Goddess Foods is truly our labor of love. We found out very quickly how much we love and miss working to make you, our valued customers and friends, the tasty products that you have come to love, enjoy, and deserve.  

We are honored to, once again, be your supplier of tasty organic snacks, drink mixes, and treats, and we look forward to serving you!

Blessings,

Nehemiah Inverse, President
