Keep your eyes open for a new brand of hand-crafted, small-batch jams, chutneys, sauces, and baked goods from Valley Girls Foodstuffs of Sonoma, CA.
I recently had a great time working with Valley Girls to develop a logo reminiscent of a vintage produce label. Director Anea Botton and her group were very receptive and excited about the process. The end result looks way cool, in my completely non-biased opinion. Go Valley Girls! I can’t wait to watch how their business grows.

We are a collaboration with Sonoma Valley Teen Services (SVTS), a non-profit organization that provides skill based programming for teens of Sonoma Valley. Their hands-on programs are designed to reinforce and foster student’s academic and career interests through involvement with the community and local businesses.
We are driven by the belief that it’s important to be a “social purpose business,” a place where we can make a difference in our small part of the globe by reaching out to at-risk kids and young adults. We are on a mission to teach some old school but mad cooking skills to young people who might not otherwise have the chance to learn cooking methods their grandmas, nonnas and abuelas might have used. We also believe in teaching kids at a young age the ins and outs of running a business. They know that they are an integral part of how successful we can be.
