28 years ago, the seeds of this company first sprouted on the Tomkins-Bergh organic farm in Western Wisconsin; the family needed a breakfast that was quick and easy to prepare, but still wholesome and nourishing. Inspired by North American hearty wild rice and a love for delicious, whole foods, they created Simply Native Foods: A line of quick hot breakfast cereals that utilize a wild rice base and native super fruits to provide convenient cooking on the go without compromising nutrition or taste. Each bite is certified gluten free, all natural, vegan, dairy free, soy free, and non-GMO. Simply Native is a family owned and operated business; the Tomkins-Bergh family strives to honor tradition, while adapting for the future.
Colin Tomkins-Bergh directs sales and marketing for Simply Native Foods, and has enjoyed the outdoors since his childhood growing up on the family’s organic grass-fed beef farm. His love of nature and conscious upbringing lead him to be an outdoor enthusiast and to eat organically and as locally as possible. After graduating from University of Wisconsin-Madison, Colin worked at the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation as a research associate exploring entrepreneurship ecosystems across the USA and the agriculture technology sector. From the quick-cooking cereals to other products with many more native foods from North America, simply Native ingredients will always be gluten-free and non-GMO.
