  • Embrace the Pivot podcast (2021)

The Simple Goodness Sisters are two sisters who left the corporate world to pursue their dreams of entrepreneurship. In 2016, Belinda left her career in recruiting at Microsoft to open a mobile bar based out of a vintage camper. The Happy Camper Cocktail Company served specialty craft cocktails at events, featuring herbs and edible flowers grown on her sister’s farm.

Venise left her Project Manager position at Redfin in 2017, to start a career in residential real estate and tend to her farm located in the foothills of Mount Rainier. Inspired by Belinda’s growing business, she converted the farm’s garlic fields into a specialty cocktail garden.

After receiving repeated requests for their secret drink recipes the sisters decided to bottle their talents in a line of specialty cocktail syrups. The syrups feature fruit, vegetables, flowers and herbs grown on the farm. As their businesses grow they hope to inspire others to grow and mix garden to glass cocktails in their own gardens and kitchens.


OUR PRODUCTS


PRESS FEATURES

Simple Goodness Sisters is a line of specialty beverage products crafted to make the tastiest possible drinks at home, simply. Farmed in the Pacific Northwest, Simple Goodness Sisters products capture the intense, pure flavors of a season and naturally preserve them. With simple syrups in seasonal flavors, rimming sugars and salts, and “drinking vinegar” shrubs, Simple Goodness Sisters products make delicious craft cocktails, mocktails, and more.

All products are made from scratch in small batches using whole ingredients. No preservatives, dyes, concentrates, or other additives are ever utilized. The products are distinguished by unique, seasonal flavor combinations such as Rhubarb -Vanilla and Huckleberry -Spruce Tip simple syrups, edible floral and piment d’espelette spiced rimming sugar and salts.

The Cocktail Farm Club is a CSA subscription for cocktails that mails the best of each season’s harvest on the Simple Goodness Cocktail Farm to customer’s doors. Each seasonal release box includes a variety of specialty drink mixers, recipe cards, and video recipes to hone home bartender’s “garden to glass” skills.


COCKTAIL FARM & SODA SHOP


PRESS FEATURES

The Simple Goodness Cocktail Farm is a ten acre farm located in Buckley, Washington. Here, the sisters grow herbs, edible flowers, fruits, and vegetables with one goal in mind: make delicious drinks. The sisters are first generation farmers learning how to farm year by year from listening to local farmers and the occasional Google search. The harvest from the farm supports the Simple Goodness Sisters products as well as the menu at their newly opened restaurant, the Soda Shop. Through the farm the sisters embrace the bounty, challenges, and lessons of nature.

The cocktail farm is beautiful in the Summer and Fall harvest seasons, bursting with color from the neat rows of edible flowers. The garden rows are pristinely located next to pasture land where horses, cows, pigs, and Venise’s beloved herb of nigerian mini goats romp. In the raised bed vegetable and annual herb garden, the sisters installed a bar and host drink making demonstrations for their customers and social media followers. The only farmhands are the two sisters, their four dirt-loving, curious children, and Venise’s husband Ross. While not certified as organic, the sisters employ sustainable and regenerative agriculture practices.
