Mary Risavi, with 5 full-time employees
Mary Risavi got her start in farmers markets working at the Heirloom Organic Gardens stand. Building on her work as an acupuncturist and nutritionist, she started Wise Goat Organics with the intention to prepare nutrient-dense foods for her clients. She uses micro-batch fermentation in glass crocks and stainless steel tanks to ensure a proper environment for beneficial bacteria to grow and to avoid any contamination from plastics. Mary strives to make her business as sustainable as possible, with minimal impact on the earth.
Wise Goat Organics sources seasonal, organic ingredients from local farmers within just a few miles of her San Benito County kitchen.
