The Weston A. Price Foundation is a member-supported non-profit organization dedicated to research, education, and activism in support of nutrition and healthy living. Here at the intersection of local food, traditional farming, and the healing arts, they share the principles of ancestral wisdom validated by modern science.
In the 1930's, nutritional pioneer Dr. Weston Price traveled to the far corners of the globe seeking out indigenous non-industrialized cultures to understand their diets and lifestyles, in contrast to the rapidly modernizing world. From these discoveries, a set of trusted principles for optimal health was established, and continues to be disseminated by the foundation.

Our mission is to develop a local model for sustainable aquaculture that protects wild fish populations and raises the healthiest fish without the use of antibiotics, hormones or pesticides.
Our fish are not contaminated with mercury, micro-plastics and other heavy metals. Our recirculating technology (RAS) continuously converts the fish waste into organic fertilizer then filters the water back into its system. The close proximity to your home reduces the time and carbon emissions that it takes to get our fish to your fridge. Local aquaculture allows you to enjoy fresher fish all year-round with a small carbon footprint.
Wild For Salmon is a fishermen owned business that makes fresh/frozen wild Alaskan salmon available to you at a common good price.

The Wisemen Project is a men’s holistic health group that melds proven, ancient techniques of movement, breath work and meditation with cutting edge scientific research. Our goal is to teach methods that tap into your ancestral genius and reduce stress, anxiety, overwhelm, disease and increase mental clarity, helping you live your most abundant life. Our retreat is the perfect opportunity to disconnect from modern stressors and practice our principles to optimize your health.
Men have very different chemical, emotional and mental reactions to life’s pressures than women. Our primitive desire to maintain the “hunt” can be exhausting and often recalibration comes in the form of unintentional negative routines and self-sabotage. If you feel stuck, overwhelmed or seek refinement of your path, let us help. Use our tools to develop clarity around how to create balanced energy in all facets of life- versus turbulent fluctuations that lead to chaos and feeling out of control. Visualize seeing the world through a different lens; becoming inspired to invest in the imprint you’ll leave behind, making the most of your precious time on this earth.
Join us in pursuit of living life to the fullest and realizing the path to our best selves along the way.
