Hello,I am a 53 year old woman who was recently diagnosed with gastroparesis. Basically it means that my stomach is paralyzed and does not function properly. I can't wait to try your soups as I have vowed to eat organic whenever I can.I greatly appreciate Fig Farms commitment to organic ingredients in their soup products.Thank you so much!

I've tried Fig's soups and they outstanding. I also have the pleasure of knowing Joel, and his products are truly an extension of his beliefs and passions. You can't do any better an that!

We got some of this soup at the East Cobb Whole Food's grand opening in July. It is sitting in my cupboard still as I have not tried it yet. Guess that I will have to try it soon. I did not this about Fig Food's & agree with Henry's soup philosophy which fits in so well with Whole Food's philosophies too. Keep up the good work Fig Food's & Whole Foods!

Love the natural go-with-the-flow style of casual, yet mindful creating recipes style--Fig Foods sounds good enough to eat--oh that's right--IT IS :)

I love all the thought and care that goes into their products. They take great care into every detail and that is much appreciated to a mother who likes to put healthy organic foods on the table.

They don't sell this brand in my local store, now I'm curious! Love the packaging, no cans! I admire their desire to help not only the people eating their soup but the planet that grows their ingredients by using organics. Win!

I look forward to trying Fig Food soups, I always make my own soup to control the sodium level. The fact they lightly salt the soup is very important to me

I appreciate Henry's intention to create a beautiful soup with a conscience. Hearing his philosophy was great "food for thought."

There's nothing better than eating something you know is good for you & is going to have a positive impact from the ingredients it takes to make it to the producers of the product. Your soup sounds amazing and seems to follow the lifestyle I am living, can't wait to try it!

This is the best boxed soup I've ever tried! I can't even make it as well. The tomato is my favorite, but all make for easy, nutritious and quick weeknight meals. I think it's a delicate balance between Henry's philosophy and the more conventional one. I want what is best for the environment, and I believe the food industry needs to be stricter on the quality of food so that we can make healthy organic AND plant based foods available, but we also need to educate people about what healthy plant based foods they should be eating and how to incorporate them, and that may take several more baby steps.

As a gardener, I love Henry's soup philosophy. I made soups from the veggies in my garden this summer (and a plethora of zucchini breads) and I love Henry's story.

For Mr. Henry to look at all aspects and to go organic for plant based and friendliness for the environment instead of just going for plant based is really a plus for everybody.

mass produced soups have a ridiculous amount of sodium.
