Once upon a time there was a crazy, bullheaded… ahem… I mean a crazy, bull-riding farmer and a land-loving health nut gal. Fast forward: we found the coolest surf spot in California (Mavericks Bay) and tied the knot. Who knew that a union between a farm boy and a wannabe triathlete tree-hugger would birth the best energy bar known to man? We are Colleen and Grant. A wannabe athlete mom and a farmer. We fell in love with a big idea: to use our professions, passions, and crazy ideas to do some good in this world.
I was busy learning how to train for triathlons (I have to confess I had KONA in my dreams!) and it went something like this: First things first…learn to swim. Check. Second…learn how to fall off a road bike WITHOUT toe clips in. Half check. Lastly…run like a banshee. Check. As I learned more and more about how to fuel my body for performance and recovery, I started eating energy bars. As I continued training, I found that traditional energy bars weren’t really that cool. Lots of high fructose corn syrup, cheap vitamins, and wonky aftertastes. Sick. So I did some research and came up with GORP.
I never thought about going commercial with this little bar until my training mates started demanding them. That’s how it all began. Word spread and pretty soon the local welding shop was ordering bars for coffee break. Hairdressers, marathon runners…folks looking for a high-protein snack to get through the day. That is when the light bulb flickered on! Our passion is to fuel your adventures and do some global good at the same time.This business has to be about more than food, more than making a dime… it has to be about people.
WE GROW FOOD. WE GET OUTSIDE AND MUCK IT UP! WE SWING FROM TREES AND SING IN THE RAIN. We are about loving life and nourishing our bodies so we can jump, fight, twirl, bike, paddle, run, climb, and roar our way into the next adventure!
