Adams Apple Eatables

Adams Apple Eatables, has vivid memories of her first apple butter encounter. As a little girl growing up in rural Illinois, she remembers watching it cook in a copper kettle on a family farm. She created her first recipe while in college, canning apple butter as Christmas gifts for family and friends. The annual tradition continued, and as fate would have it, she married an “Adams” in 1992. “Adams Apple Butter” was born. Over twenty years and thousands of homemade jars later, she now offers her perfected award-winning Adams Apple Butter recipe to satisfied customers around the country who say, “It tastes like memories”.


Angelo Pietro Salad Dressing

The story behind Angelo Pietro reads a bit like the Japanese version of our own American dream. 

A man with a big passion for Italian cuisine, Pietro Founder Kunihiko Murata followed his heart and opened a small Italian pasta restaurant in 1980 in his hometown of Fukuoka, in south-western Japan.   He quickly learned that Japanese food lovers shared his passion for the flavors of Italy.  One restaurant became two, then four, and within a few years, Murata was running a successful chain of over 60 Angelo Pietro restaurants throughout Japan.

The hugely popular Angelo Pietro salad dressings began as a humble sideline to the pasta business.  “We cook our pastas to order and that takes about 10 minutes,” said Mr. Murata.  “To keep our patrons happy, we created the idea of an Italian vinaigrette with Japanese flavors to accompany a small salad and vegetables as a start.  Customers loved it, but most importantly, children loved it.”  As the story goes, parents noticed that children would eat their salads and vegetables – but only with Pietro’s special dressing.   

After repeated requests from parents for dressing to take home to families, Mr. Murata began filling his empty wine bottles with salad dressing.  He soon realized that he had a hit on his hands, something that would eventually become an even bigger success than his original restaurant concept.

From these modest beginnings, Pietro Dressings have now become the best-selling soy dressings in Japan with more than 17 million bottles of dressing produced and sold each year.   “And I give full credit to the children of Japan, who served as our inspiration, said Murata.    I sincerely hope that American families have the same experience!”

Bell Plantation


Achieving great things with the humble peanut

Peanut butter has always been a staple for the health conscious and physically active. But even peanut butter can be improved. PB2 reduces fat through a chemical-free process. Like all Bell Plantation products, PB2 and Chocolate PB2 are all natural, preservative free, and contain no artificial sweeteners. And that makes them a sweet alternative for active lifestyles, dieters, and moms who want healthy snacks for their kids.

Beneficial to farmers and consumers

We believe the family farm is the foundation of our country. While nature and the whims of a commodity-based industry often seem to conspire against the American farmer, its low-priced competition on the other side of the world that puts our farmers at greatest risk. Because of a lower cost of living, a farmer on the international market can sell his crop for up to five times less than his American counterpart. According to the USDA, the average return for an American farmer is less than one percent of his total investment. Simply raising prices is an unacceptable solution for the American consumer; finding an acceptable solution and viable alternatives is what Bell Plantation, Inc. was created to do.

Bell Plantation was founded in 1991 by J.C. and Jo Bell as an agricultural research company. Spurred on by the need to improve profitability for family farmers, Bell Plantation is devoted to rethinking the uses of traditional farming products. Key to the company's goals is the development of consumer-ready products from commodities grown on the farm. And that’s how PB2 was created – an excellent answer to a significant peanut surplus. When you buy Bell Plantation products you’re choosing flavorful, healthy innovation that’s good for you, your family, and for America’s family farms.


PB2 and Chocolate PB2 can be reconstituted with any liquid of choice – water, juice, etc, to make smoothies or shakes, eaten as a powder, or used in cooking and baking. PB2 is light-weight and versatile making it the perfect take-along food. It’s delicious, healthy food – good anytime and anyplace.
