Jill & Chris Kummer, Heartland Chia

Founded by farmers in 2012, Heartland Chia is growing the first ever local chia in the midwestern United States! They produce some of the highest quality chia in the world – right here in the USA – and they want everyone to have knowledge about this nutritious superfood. Chia needs much less water and fertilizer than traditional crops, making it a truly sustainable pollinator crop which benefits the environment as well as the bees and butterflies.
