The Nutsack News
Follow the Nutsack News for special offers, product updates, nutty happenings, and an occasional nut joke.
Inside Shop on the Hill you'll find plenty of ultra-fresh roasted nuts, but you'll also find products from over thirty other local food and craft makers. It's like an indoor farmer's market, without the lettuce.
Be sure to watch Your Life A to Z on Channel 3 today at 10am to learn more about Nutsack Foods and other great local companies like Iconic Cocktail Co and Lifetime Leather Co.
It took nearly two years but the Nutsacks finally arrived on the East Coast. We've been shipping nuts to individual customers all across the United States since 2014, but now we have a retail location in Lace Placid, New York that proudly supports the sack.
I started Nutsack Foods almost two years ago, out of frustration and desperation. I saw it as an opportunity for change, to blend humor and health for a good cause, and take control of my future.
Since then my weekends have changed the most. No more sleeping in or taking off for a quick weekend getaway with the family.
Friday night means it's time to stay up late filling Nutsacks. I crank up the music and into the zone. It's kinda like being at a nightclub, without the crowd, or the lights, or the drinks, or... hmm... ok it's nothing like a nightclub, but at least I get to dance.
Saturday I'm up early to load the car and head to the farmer's market. I get to introduce Nutsacks to new visitors, and high-five my loyal customers as they return to reload their sack. It's the most draining day of the week but also the most rewarding. I love making people smile.
Sunday you'll find me hand stamping paper sacks so they are ready to be filled as soon as I receive an order. I don't keep a bunch of bags filled. These babies are born when you order them. Hence the 'Ultra-Fresh' part of the brand.
Am I complaining? Not at all. I'm working toward a goal of controlling my future, for me, my family, and my future employees. I've relied on the decisions of other people too many times, and have had too many "unhappy endings". Now I'm building a brand of my own and it's as exciting as it is stressful. Happy ending eminent.
Nutsack Foods is still a one man operation, but sales are steadily increasing at the market, the retail stores, and online. I've grown from selling nuts at one coffee shop to almost forty locations in less than two years. This is validation that people love my brand, my concept, and my nuts. It also means that I'll need to hire some fun and nutty people soon, to help take Nutsack Foods to the next level. Very cool, if you ask me.
So this Labor Day, I honor the entrepreneurs who drive change and create jobs. It's not easy, sometimes is sucks, and many people think we're nuts, but that's fine with me.
