About Us

Back 40 Mercantile is dedicated to providing high-quality products that are sourced from small purveyors who create products that we can all feel good about. Our brands are either organic and/or sustainable, local where possible, and are produced by real people. At the Back 40, the product quality, look and taste come first, but you can also rest assured that the product was made in a way that is not harmful to our world. We feel nostalgic for a time when the word organic to describe food was redundant, when communities purchased their dry goods locally and conversed during the transaction, and when farmers and craftsmen were admired for their talents.
