Ryan and Phoebe
Armed with a dream and a doobie we set off on a mission to share the world’s best juice with a smile.
In my early twenties, I lived with a local family in Costa Rica where I learned Spanish. Each day, the matriarch of the household, Eugenia, would make fresh agua frescas using local tropical fruits. I instantly came to depend on their vitamin-rich and life-giving qualities which would replenish me after long, sunny days at the beach.
Afterward, I relocated to San Francisco and lived in a house with, (admittedly) one-too-many roommates! My first winter, my 10 housemates were passing around the flu, and after I caught it for a second time -- I found myself longing for those nutrient dense juices that gave me so much life in Costa Rica.
So, I started making fresh juice concoctions in our home kitchen. My friend and roommate, Phoebe, (with a background in nutrition science) jumped in to help me create revitalizing and delicious blends. Excited by our recipes and the effects the juices had on our health, we began sharing them with our housemates. Turns out, we were on to something - the fresh juices helped us all kick that flu to the curb for good!
That’s when we decided to make our newfound juicing passion an official venture. But as we began to source fresh produce, we noticed that unlike the countries I traveled to in Central America (where organic, regenerative, and small scale farming was standard), most produce in the USA was grown on a massive, industrial scale and crops were being covered with harmful pesticides and chemicals.
This didn’t make any sense to us. Why take something naturally perfect, like fruit, and then cover it with chemicals?! So, we set out to find the best family farms using organic, sustainable farming practices that were actually good for the earth and the people who enjoyed their harvest. Once we found ‘em, Happy Moose was born. But we weren’t going to be any run-of-the-mill juice company. We were Happy Moose -- envisioning an unforgettable, fun-loving Moose with an ethos to spread health and happiness.
We were off on a mission to share the world’s best juice with a smile.
Quit Trippin, Start Sippin!
