Georgia Gems: Honest Harvest

Written By: Bre Humphries

Enjoy good, hearty comfort food this holiday season—without the guilt—with Honest Harvest pasta, made in Alpharetta using ancient grains with much better nutritional profiles than factory-produced pastas.

Founder Mary Blanford learned how to make pasta during a year in Italy, and combined that experience with her knowledge of farming techniques gleaned from her childhood in a small farming town. Honest Harvest products feature KAMUT Khorasan Wheat, which is great for your immune system thanks to a high presence of omega-3s, and Einkorn wheat, the oldest grain known to man and an incredible source of protein. Bestsellers include KAMUT vegetable fusilli, Einkorn vegetable rigatoni, garlic angel hair, and a gluten-free garlic angel hair.

Find it at Olive Tree & Vine in Cartersville and online at
