Bittersweet Inc. launches new product package for holidays


WHITEHOUSE – In 2013, Bittersweet received a grant from the United States Department of Agriculture,
National Institute of Food and Agriculture to fund the creation of Bittersweet Gardens.
Bittersweet Gardens is an expansion of the horticulture program that employs adults with autism. A
self-sustaining program, Bittersweet Gardens develops products that meet industry needs. This fall,
Bittersweet Gardens developed a new, entrepreneurial three-product package consisting of arugula pesto,
basil pesto and tomato chutney. Through the $20 package, consumers who purchase this product will be
able to continue to provide vocational opportunities for individuals with autism.
The three-product package may be purchased at Bittersweet Farms in Whitehouse, 12660 Archbold-Whitehouse
Road or on the Bittersweet Gardens Etsy Shop:
The production and sale of this package provides vocational and employment opportunities for its clients;
while the production helps to build community interaction, social skills and life skills for those
involved. Bittersweet Gardens works to train and expand the abilities and knowledge of those with autism
who work and care for the farm.
