    Hi Jill,

    My wife and I are in the beginning stages of a website that features only the best products for babies and expecting mothers. It’s focus is on SF Bay Area business owners. I’d like to start a dialogue with you to see if you would be interested in allowing us to feature your products on our site. Looking forward to your response.

    I can’t wait to try the soaking technique you recommend. One reason I don’t make more beans is the gassiness it causes. Thanks Jill! This was a great blog post!

    Hi Jill,

    As a mother to a 5.5 month old daughter starting solids and from watching your dream come to life through updates from Spike and this website, you have opened our families eyes and ears to the benefit of organic baby food. THANK YOU!!!! I can’t wait to get her on the organic train and to sample some of your baby foods either on a trip to Cali or when they become available online.
    All our support and good east coast energy-
    Kara & Spike Stokes

    Hi Jill, It was a pleasure and honor to meet with you and participate in your cooking class at the Birth and Baby Fair a couple of weeks ago. Thanks so much for everything. I think next time we’ll have to calculate how many burners we can have on at one time before it overloads… at least we figured that we needed to reset the breaker. Always feel free to ask me any questions or if you need help with anything that has to do with construction and or carpentry. You never know that I may be useful… Also, there was a small typo error in our daughters name, it”s spelled Samantha Love. Can you possibly correct that for us. Again, Thanks much Rick & Lisa

    Jill – I found this from Linked In!

    It’s such a great idea & I’m so happy for you. Seems like such a perfect fit – brings it all together. Of course it’s hard not wish you were in Boston. You’re going to be a great success & I’ll be able to say I knew you when…

    wishing you all the best
