Our son, Forrest Smith, was diagnosed celiac at age two. We had been through it all, the suffering, the uncertain diagnosis, the fear that all health mysteries bring to a family. Finally, with his diagnosis, we understood what his diet limitations were. But we lacked guidance, and most of all, we lacked reliable trusted sources of food. Since then my wife and I, along with many other relatives on both sides of our family, have been diagnosed. This give all of the owners of GF Harvest a unique firsthand understanding of the “issues” you face if your food is cross contaminated. Throughout Forrest's childhood, our family has been active in local and national support groups helping people cope with the frustrations of being on a GF diet.
That could have been the end of our story; acceptance and living with limitations. But, what happened next was amazing...
A Need, An Idea, A Project, A Company: Instead, this involvement created a quest. Our son Forrest decided to seek a trusted solution for his restrictive diet. This led him into an innovative high school project and then designation as an FFA Entrepreneur. From there, the idea grew.
The project resulted in the founding of glutenfreeoats.com and GF Harvest. We became the first domestic source of natural and organic oats for folks like us on a gluten free diet.
