From selling chicken in the garage to a full blown commercial kitchen :)
The Poelstra family has enjoyed working together since 1996 running a home-based co-op. In 2006 when we opened our first store, it became a full time operation as Donna’s husband Ron joined her and the kids. Joseph became our head chef, Adam worked with customers and now runs our logistics department, and Annie has developed our gluten free line which has greatly expanded the variety of foods that we offer. We enjoy cooking, baking and helping feed families so everyone can enjoy a family meal around the table.
The Poelstras were raised on good midwestern cooking, basic ingredients without all the added chemicals and preservatives. The food at Taste of Life still reflects that in our homemade recipes, starting from scratch and ending up with a great tasting hearty meal that is good for the body and soul.
Our business has grown to include more staff helping in the kitchen. We appreciate our employees and consider everyone part of our family.
