Buddha’s Brew Kombucha.
Kimberly Lanski, brewmaster and co-owner of Austin, TX based Buddha’s Brew, began making kombucha for herself and her close friends many years ago after she became fascinated by its ability to help the body maintain a healthy metabolic balance. In 2006, she created Buddha’s Brew – a tantalizing, invigorating, rejuvenating probiotic-rich kombucha. Kimberly delicately crafts the recipe for each flavor, believing that kombucha can and should taste good! Organic ingredients and fair trade tea are used in the brewing process which takes place in their very own commercial kombucha kitchen/brewery in Austin.

Mineral Wells, TX has had a worldwide reputation for its “Crazy Water” since the late 1800’s after a woman suffering from a nervous condition drank from a mineral well there and was cured. Health seekers from all over the globe flooded to this tiny mountain community by the thousands every year. Now they are packaging and selling their Crazy Water so people everywhere can enjoy the amazing health benefits of its high mineral content and alkalinity. People claim that drinking Crazy Water has helped cure everything from acid reflux to kidney disease to osteoporosis! Try it for yourself!

Sweet Leaf Tea.
The idea for Austin, TX-based Sweet Leaf was born in 1997 while founder Clayton was living on a sailboat in the Florida Keys. He wanted to make a ready-to-drink bottled tea that tasted as good as the homemade iced tea that his grandmother “Mimi” used to make (see the cartoon rendition of Mimi on the Sweet Leaf label!). Granny’s recipe called for premium tea leaves and pure cane sugar. Following her instructions, the first big batches of Sweet Leaf tea were brewed in Beaumont, TX using pillowcases as tea bags and crawfish pots for brew tanks. Clayton was shortly joined by childhood friend David and they began distributing in stores nationwide. Today they still use simply pure cane sugar to sweeten their delicious teas.

For four years now, Maine Root‘s organically-sweetened sodas have been thrilling fans from New England to Texas. This all started when Matt Seller, a boat builder and former fishing guide, was helping a friend build the oven at Flatbread Pizza Company in Portland, Maine. Finding the restaurant’s root beer less than palate-pleasing, he brewed his own. Praises and orders flowed and soon his brother Mark quit his software sales job to expand their distribution. Maine Root uses organic evaporated cane juice to sweeten their sodas. Bottom line is that it tastes better, and since it is organic, it is better for you, better for the farmers, and better for the ecosystem. Today, Maine Root is flying off the shelves at Urban Acres!
Our former prepared foods chef, Nicole, has gone on to greener pastures (pardon the pun) with our blessing. So we’d like to introduce you to our new amazing chef, Sean Blanchette! If you’ve been to Fearing’s restaurant at The Ritz-Carlton, then you’ve most likely tasted his delicious fare. We’ll give you a formal intro soon, but until here’s a pic of Sean servin’ up some of his roasted tomato salsa and grass-fed bison sliders today at the store…
