Daisy is not really a member of our team but she helps out. After the wheatgrass has been harvested there is some stubble and a lot of root mass left behind. There are a lot of nutrients in there but the overall taste is not very good. Many people would throw it all away but most of the farmers around here have at least a few cows. So we give them that nice biomass and they feed it to their cows. The cows love it!
Then we have a few humans.
Michael used to be a taxation specialist (on the side of the taxpayer!) but found that he would rather grow plants than sit around playing with laws and numbers. For almost twenty years he grew sprouts making all the errors a person possibly could. But he kept on going, eliminating the errors one by one until he could grow wonderful healthy sprouts each and every crop.
After all those errors and false starts, Michael arrived at a system that included some ways of doing things that no one else has.
Now, the Vegus sprouts are grown in enclosed environment chambers where Michael fusses over the temperature, humidity, watering, air circulation, soaking of seeds and harvesting of the plants - and gives the rest of us a hard time if we should dream of going into a chamber without changing shoes, clothes, etc. etc., etc..
Lar has been a cabinet maker, an organic farmer, an organic food box distributor and now as Product Manager at Vegus he oversees production as well as going out and selling – and in his spare time coaching GAA sports teams.
Two of the important things to know about Arianna is that she is an ardent vegetarian and raw foodist as well as being a graduate in statistics. She puts together the logic of statistics with her love of raw foods to find ever better ways of marketing our juices. Arianna says its not really about marketing and sales , its more about making good food choices available to as many people as possible.
From different paths and different disciplines we came together here in Wexford, Ireland with the idea of making the best possible juices and doing so in a way that actually delivers the full value all the way to the consumer.
