Annie Withey co-founded Annie’s Homegrown, Inc. with Andrew Martin in 1989 with the goal of giving families healthy and delicious macaroni and cheese and to show by example that a successful business can also be socially responsible. Initially, the company sold natural macaroni and cheese dinners to regional supermarkets and independent natural retailers in New England. More than 20 years after the company’s founding, our original values still guide our business. Annie Withey remains involved in the business, writing the personal letters printed on the back of our boxes and responding to letters from our consumers. The company remains a mission-driven business grounded in using natural and organic ingredients to make great-tasting products that consumers love. Today, Annie lives on her certified organic farm in Connecticut with her husband and two daughters, where she grows a wide variety of vegetables and flowers for her local co-op and farmer’s market. She remains the inspiration and corporate conscience for the Annie’s family of products.
Enjoy the delicious taste of our Organic Shells & White Cheddar with the goodness of cheese made with milk from grass fed, California cows. The cheese used in Annie’s Organic Grass Fed Shells & Real Aged Cheddar comes from the Rumiano Family. All Rumiano organic milk producers are certified through the American Humane Association’s Free Farmed Certified program, which guarantees customers that the organic milk used in the making of Rumiano organic cheeses comes from cows that are raised and treated humanely.
Annie's Cheddar Mac (as we call it!) is our answer to all those chemically orange colored cheeses out there. We've taken our original Shells & White Cheddar and added a little color to it, naturally! Our totally natural cheese is colored with a plant extract called annatto. Annatto has been used in tropical American cultures for generations to color foods such as butter, cheese and mustard. The annatto tree grows 20 to 30 feet in height and when its seeds are stirred in water, they produce orange annatto dye, also called achiote, to color foods. Annie's Cheddar Macaroni and cheese is a great alternative for kids who need to have that "orange" cheese on their macaroni.
From the time of Annie's first mac & cheese product in 1989, a small-but-growing group of you who are wheat & gluten-intolerant have suggested we produce a gluten free macaroni and cheese. It may seem a gluten free mac & cheese has been a long time in coming! Now our Gluten Free Rice Pasta & Cheddar is one of our most popular products.
Introduced back in 1989, Annie's Shells & White Cheddar is our original and best selling product. Annie created Shells & Cheddar (as we call it here) in her kitchen when she realized there was no all-natural, white cheddar macaroni & cheese on the market. She came up with a totally delicious product that is made with real white cheddar cheese and organic shell shaped pasta.
