How long have you been with Foods Alive?

We cofounded Foods Alive with our son Matt and his wife Tammy. In the early days our son Jake and daughter Libby also helped in starting the company. And don't forget Gram, my mom, who use to flip the crackers over around 8pm in the evening so that Ellen and I could have some free time.
