Almost 20 years ago I started my company, Newman’s Own Organics not because I wanted to make a lot of money, or be known for my business acumen; I started it to have a way to affect positive change.

My passions include fishing, surfing, cooking, eating, sustainable agriculture, travel and philanthropy. I’ll do my best to share a bit about all these interests through articles, recipes, videos and photos. Obviously, I hope you enjoy it and pass it along to others…  XOXO Nell
