Ted is a second generation natural products entrepreneur who grew up in and around Mountain Marketplace, the small natural foods store created by his parents in the mid ’70s. It was a wonderful and magical exposure to the early years of the industry. He credits those roots with firmly entrenching a set of deep values and appreciation for nature, food, family and animals.
Throughout his career, Ted has founded and led multiple ventures, beginning with the creation of full-service marketing agency called InHouse Creative in 2003. In 2005 he co-founded Jungle Products, an importer and marketer of organic fair-trade tropical oils. In 2014 he co-founded New Barn Organics, a company that makes premium, organic alt-dairy products. He is also a founding partner in Stonewall Robb, a family investment company.
Ted is a dynamic entrepreneur who excels at creating mission–driven organizations with a deeper purpose and powerful brand. He lives in Santa Rosa, California with his wife Kerry and their two children, Olivia and Owen. He has two mutts, and believes the Gravenstein is the best apple in the world.
