Plant Kingdom started in late 2008 when baker Jeremy Koosed began making Goo balls for friends. That was our first Hemp seed goodie. With concern for agricultural and health issues on the rise, an under-utilized plant protein like Hemp is clearly part of the solution. We have so much to gain from awesome plant foods, but without access-initiatives and health information, the benefits won’t be realized. It’s our hope that increased access to vegan & Hemp foods will advance collective well-being and agricultural progress.

Jeremy saw the potential in Hemp seeds to play a bigger role in strengthening the community. People were becoming hip to agricultural issues, demanding alternatives to empty calorie snacks and greater access to fresh and sustainable farm products. Our line of snack-sensations is providing uniquely satisfying experience. Whether it’s the snappy crunch of whole hemp seed products, the delightful crispyness of Coconut bars, spot-on peanut buttery chocolate items, or the pleasantness of berry bars, there’s a flavor and texture most everyone can enjoy.

Our nourishing goods are produced in two spots. Goo balls, scones & cookies are made with love at our bakery in Akron, inside Ms Julie’s kitchen. On Cleveland’s east side along Mayfield rd in Lyndhurst, our energy bars are mixed in small batches and dehydrated. The temperature doesn’t exceed 130° at this dehydration kitchen. Dehydration is a great preservation method, giving our bars a shelf life of around two months without being refrigerated. Low temperature production method also preserves thevalue of the good Omega-fats in the seeds.

Embedded in Northeast Ohio, Plant Kingdom operates a bakery/retail location in Akron and our energy bar kitchen/storefront on the east side of Cleveland. We serve independent vendors and community gathering places like coffee shops where we’ve served several hundred thousand snacks, helping these vendors make an honest living while boosting the sustainable farm economy.

If it sounds like Plant Kingdom is on a mission, it’s true. A steadfast supporter of pk singresponsible agricultural practices, owner Jeremy Koosed knows our era demands action. Natural resources that support life are being wasted. We need a life-affirming, energy efficient agriculture system that provides whole foods directly to people. When folks find out that 80% of Ohio agricultural products are processed into corn and soy derivatives or fed to animals, the land & energy use doesn’t seem logical. Industrial scale mono-cropping and factory farms are a primary cause of Greenhouse gas emissions and biodiversity-loss. Whatever your tastes, making the most of plant protein sources like seeds, beans, nuts, and whole grains can make a big dent in restoring the integrity of our agricultural sector while creating broader opportunities for family farms
