Are your ingredients locally sourced?
We source as much of our ingredients that we can from local farms.  There are no Pineapple or Mango groves in New England, so we use frozen fruit from the US.  Our blueberries come from Maine.  Our spices come fair trade growers via our supplier and are all natural and some organic.  We use no fillers or anti-caking agents (silicone dioxide) in our spice blends.
