Summer Upcycling on the GoMacro Farm!

– by Amelia Kirchoff, GoMacro Co-Founder 

As we slowly make our way into the warm summer months, remnants of a wet spring remain on the GoMacro farm. Our area of Wisconsin has seen double the average rainfall for the season. While the animals are enjoying the freshening green pastures, they’re also coping with a fair share of mud between their toes.   

Our family farm plays an important role in many of the decisions we make as a business, and continuing to practice sustainability efforts is important to all of us here at GoMacro. This month, I’ve been busy examining ways to recycle some of the by-products from our manufacturing process in hopes of making our hometown of Viola a cleaner place to live.    Continue Reading

Mother’s Day: Memories of Mother and the Simplicity of Spring

– by Amelia Kirchoff, GoMacro Co-Founder 

My mother was an avid gardener. As a little girl, I would work beside her in our garden in England, innocently gleaning more than I knew possible from my simple actions. She would be busy seeding-in our vegetables and tending our fruits throughout the year as well as planting the bounty of flowers which nourished us in still deeper ways. From those early observations, I have tried to emulate her earnest industriousness in my own gardening efforts ever since. Continue Reading

Amelia’s Macro Cookie Recipe

– by Amelia Kirchoff, GoMacro Co-Founder

For a good part of my adult life I had very little interest in health and wellness, it was something I took for granted like waking up in the morning. Although I was not interested in nutrition, I had developed a love of gardening from my mother and wanted to grow my own vegetables and fruit. So, I purchased with my husband a 120 acre rundown farm in S.W. Wisconsin and we set about creating a home with a large garden.

GoMacro’s Favorite Seasonal Hazelnut Recipes

– by Amelia Kirchoff, GoMacro Co-Founder

Nuts and seeds are an important component of a plant based vegan diet and one of the nuts that we grow on the GoMacro farm is the American Hazelnut (Corylus Americana). We grow it because it reduces soil erosion, sequesters carbon and is a great wildlife habitat loved by squirrels, woodpeckers, turkey and grouse as well as many insects.  In fact the American Hazelnut is a host plant to the caterpillar of the beautiful Luna Moth.

GoMacro’s Farm Fresh Quince Paste Recipe

– by Amelia Kirchoff, GoMacro Co-Founder

I grew up in England on a standard farm diet.  We produced everything we ate from meat, dairy, eggs and honey to vegetables and fruit.  Although not a plant based diet it was a healthy diet.  As an adult I have experimented with vegetarian, vegan and macrobiotic diets but I found that plant based food is what I love most.  It is challenging and creative.  So when I bought 120 acres of farmland in Wisconsin the first thing I did was plant the most exotic fruits and vegetables that I could find.

GoMacro Partners with Keep A Breast Foundation to Support Non-Toxic Revolution

Breast Cancer Awareness is a close-to-home cause for my mother and I. After being diagnosed with breast cancer in 2003, my mother, Amelia, switched to a macrobiotic diet, eliminating all animal products, gluten and refined sugars; a dietary change which led to the creation of our first “MacroBar” in our home kitchen. Over a decade later, she remains cancer-free and GoMacro has grown into an internationally-distributed plant-based nutrition bar company based upon the principles of her clean-eating, cancer recovery diet.
