Brownwood Acres is a family business that began as a honey stand during the sugar rationing of World War II. Over generations, the de Tar family built the company into a specialty food and gift merchant, producing homemade products from neighboring orchards--including jams, cherry salsa, cherry barbeque sauce, and its famous cherry butter. In light of recent medical interest in antioxidants, company president Steve de Tar has revamped the business into a nutraceutical manufacturer. Its tart cherry, pomegranate, and blueberry juice concentrates are sold in Kroger grocery stores, as well as in health food stores and through the company's website.
Today, the sales of CherryFlex and Wild BlueberryIQ softgels are driving the company's growth. Brownwood Acres Foods, Inc. won a coveted place on Inc. Magazine's 2004 list of America's 500 fastest growing private companies.
