Big Green Tomato
Michelle & Jack Dill, Cofounders
Based in Fort Calhoun, Nebraska, Big Green Tomato makes deliciously crunchy, gluten-free granola. After co-owner Michelle discovered intolerances to egg, dairy and gluten in 2009, she was determined to remake the recipes she missed most in a version she could eat, and granola ended up being a fast favorite.
Crazy Gringa Hot Sauce
Mary Current & Anderson Current, Cofounders
In 2011, Gringa’s garden was overflowing with peppers when she decided to whip up some homemade habanero hot sauce. The rest is history. Made from start to finish in Omaha, Nebraska, Crazy Gringa Hot Sauce makes flavorful, spicy hot sauces derived from a true love for peppers.

Alicia Reisinger, Founder
Wax Buffalo owner and founder, Alicia Reisinger, first tried candle making at 14 for her grandmother’s Christmas gift.
