  1. Hello Sara,

    Great Misssion and fun site you have here!!

    My partners and I founded a small juice company in Sherwood Oregon – and have an interest in talking with you about your ride and your mission – with the intent of determining if sponsorship would be a good fit for both of us.

    Visit our site at: SherwoodValleyJuice.com

    We us low temperature dehydration to remove the water from 100% fruits and vegetables – then blend the powders into juice smoothies. When you want some energy and/or a nutritious meal, just mix our 2.4 oz packet of powder with 2 cups of water, shake the mix and drink your fruits and vegetables. The low temperature dehydration maintains more than 90% of the nutrition that is in the fresh produce. Our juice smoothies are free of gluten, soy, dairy, additives or fillers.

    We have a nutritious, energizing, raw, convenience and flavorful story to share.

    Looking forward to talking with you. I can be reached at peter@SherwoodValleyJuice.com or at 503-805-3304, any time, seven days a week.

    Peter Stack
    President
