Sacred Valley Owners at Farm in Bolivia
 
Looking to expand his farming operations outside of the United States, Carl (center) began scouring the Western Hemisphere to find the finest superfoods Latin and South America had to offer.  Traveling from Mexico to Argentina, Carl searched for the perfect soils and climates to grow nutrient rich grains, beans, and seeds.  His travels led him to Bolivia and Peru, home of the lush Sacred Valley.  There Carl met local farmers and learned the tools of their trade.  The region surrounding the Andes mountains is flush with ripe farmland and an incredible variety of agricultural products -- including some of the most nutrient-rich superfoods on the planet, like Chia.

Carl, along with his brother-in-law Robert, believed they had found the "Holy Grail" of soil and purchased multiple farms between the two countries.  Over the next several years of working directly with the farmers of Bolivia and Peru, Carl and his team perfected the age-old agricultural practices of the region and began producing large quantities of various superfoods.

Painstakingly developed over more than a decade, Beyond the Equator launched in 2017 to share these incredible foods with the world. Today, our farmers bring you some of the world's finest superfoods directly from the rich, historic soils of Bolivian and Peruvian farms to you.

As our story continues, we look forward to providing superfoods that fuel your conquests!
