A New Food Category: Earthmade isn’t just a product. It is a brand new way of farming and growing. It doesn’t require the chemicals used in conventional farming, and it has higher yields and longer life than organic farming. Earthmade is forging its way into a more sustainable future, one commodity at a time. Earthmade focuses not only on food, but on plant life, human life, and the full life of our planet. We can re-nourish the soil, we can cut down on chemicals entering the human microbe, and we can produce enough food for the growing population. The time is now, so choose Earthmade.

“When you think about it, it’s actually one of the most exciting opportunities we can have. To rebuild our soils and our health, from the ground up.”

– Mike Dobbins


About + Process

From its inception, Earthmade has set out to be not only a reactive solution, but a proactive one as well. It’s up to all of us to make the right choices for our health and the health of the planet, and Earthmade is a catalyst to making 100% GoodTM choices. With Earthmade as an option, we can take most of the worrying and guesswork out of what consumers should or shouldn’t purchase. ‘ZERO chemicals’ is a pretty clear message when it comes to what’s in your food. Can we help people select the better strawberries? The better corn? If so, we can apply an economic lever which incentivizes farmers to focus on quality, and not on quantity. The solution is simple…it’s simply Earthmade.
We believe that we are that generation that will eliminate chronic disease, and the exciting thing is, this movement has already started.

Earthmade food practices are not only an in-process solution, but a preventative solution as well. We believe we are providing an alternative to current approaches that cause harm, and that are ultimately unsustainable. It all starts from the soil…and Earthmade is healing plants, food, human health, and our planet from the ground up.

Earthmade is also making systems we use today better, and creating innovations that help minimize negative impacts on people and on the environment. One of our main goals is to aid the farmers, so that they benefit from harvesting good food and healthy yields. Farmers are the first ones to feed our people, and our planet.

List of Commodities



Strawberries like fertile, well-drained, slightly acidic soil, and do best in full sun. This type of soil is harder to come by in chemically damaged conventional fields, or soil that can’t be rotated due to organic farming. Earthmade strawberries thrive due the good bacteria that is put into the soil, producing healthy fruit from a healthy foundation.

Anatomy of a Strawberry: Although the exact origin of its common name is uncertain, the name strawberry probably is a corruption of “strewn berry.” The latter was an early designation for the plant which made reference to the fact that, as a strawberry plant produced runners and spread, its berries were strewn about the ground. Do you know what an Earthmade Strawberry is NOT called?…genetically modified.

Surprisingly, the strawberry is not a berry at all. Botanists call the strawberry a “false fruit,” or pseudocarp. A strawberry is actually a multiple fruit, which consists of many tiny individual fruits embedded in a fleshy receptacle. Do you know what is NOT embedded in an Earthmade Strawberry?…heavy metals.

Did you know that the seeds of a strawberry are referred to as “true fruits?” Technically, the small, yellow seed-like bits are called achenes, and each is a fruit! Inside each achene is the actual strawberry seed. An average-sized strawberry holds about 200 achenes.

Do you know what an Earthmade Strawberry DOESN’T contain?…pesticide residue.

Earthmade Strawberries:

We HEART Earthmade strawberries! Strawberries contain powerful heart-health boosters like ellagic acid and flavonoids that can provide an antioxidant effect that can benefit heart health by 1) counteracting the bad cholesterol in the blood 2) providing an anti-inflammatory effect, which is also good for the heart.
Earthmade strawberries are sustainably grown, making them healthy for you AND the planet! We love it!

Earthmade strawberries are also packed with vitamin “SEE!” Did you know strawberries are good for your eye health and vision? Our eyes require vitamin C to protect them from exposure to free-radicals from the sun’s harsh UV rays. Vitamin C also plays an important role in strengthening the eye’s cornea and retina. Earthmade’s VISION is a solution for healthy and sustainable products without the use of any harmful chemicals or heavy metals, while providing the farming industry an efficient and effective way to maintain their yields and preserve their land and environment 

Earthmade strawberries are worth the “WEIGHT!” Because strawberries are naturally low in calories, fat-free and low in both sodium and sugar, they are a great snack alternative for maintaining a healthy weight in order to prevent diabetes and heart disease. Watch out for Earthmade strawberries hitting local Walmart produce sections soon!


Celery requires plenty of moisture, fertile soil, and a long, cool growing season. Any obstacles to these conditions will lessen the yields. Earthmade celery is grown with yields equal or better to conventional and organic.

Globally, various aspects of soy production generate greenhouse gasses that contribute to climate change. Luckily, Earthmade’s sustainable practices do not include any chemical use, helping to reduce these challenges to our environment.


Corn can be finicky to grow, and there are many diseases and pests that can also plague corn. Earthmade helps to combat these issues by using good bacteria to fight off the bad bacteria

Mike Dobbins

CEO, Vicentia

Mike Dobbins is developing bio inputs to replace pesticides, herbicides and chemical fertilizers. His mission is to give farmers the tools they need to produce 100% chemical free food at the scale needed to feed the 9.8 billion people that will soon inhabit the earth. “If you want to look after biodiversity, and you want to improve our soil health, and you want to improve our chronic illness growth, we have to have NO chemicals. And in all fairness there has not been, on a worldwide basis, a solution to the problem.



A few years ago, Walmart embarked on a journey to become a regenerative company, dedicated to placing nature and humanity at the center of their business. As part of their commitment, they recently partnered with GEM Pack Berries, and will be distributing the first crops ever to be grown using an innovative cultivation method that eliminates the need for pesticides and soil-damaging heavy metals… game-changing strawberries from Earthmade. In keeping with environmentally friendly practices aimed at minimizing transportation distances, Earthmade strawberries are available in select Walmart locations in Southern California’s Ventura County.

Duda Farm Fresh Foods

The Duda family has been growing fresh fruits and vegetables for nearly 100 years. It all started with Andrew Duda, who had just 40 acres of farmland, and his sights set on the American Dream. Now, six generations later, the Duda family continues this legacy by bringing their farm-fresh products to a restaurant or grocery store near you and ultimately, your kitchen table. Among their responsible farming practices, Duda has graciously partnered with Earthmade in running chemical-free farming trials on celery.

Gath Farms

Gath Farms has a strong foundation of four generations dedicated to the land. They base their business on relationships, and understand the importance of face-to-face business practices built on honesty and integrity. Working together to build and grow their own successful farming operation provides the foundation upon which they can help others grow their operations, increase their profits and protect the land for generations to come. Gath Farms has partnered with Earthmade to run trials of chemical-free farming on commodities such as corn and soybeans.

GEM Pack Berries

With an eye on the future, an ace coalition of California farmers known as GEM Pack Berries long ago embraced the organic farming practices standardized in the late 1980s. When they banded together in 2015, they wanted to find even more sustainable, soil friendly methods. They soon partnered with Vicentia, which was conducting innovative research on developing a special kind of good bacteria as a substitute to both artificial and heavy metal-based pesticides. GEM Pack understood that, if Vicentia scientists were successful, their advancements could solve a long list of health, agricultural, sustainability, and environmental issues. GEM Pack allocated a sizable plot of farming land so Vicentia bioscientists could conduct multi-year research on the cultivation of multiple commodities.


Australian bioscience company Vicentia’s bio inputs have not only protected crops all around the world from pests that prey on them; they also eliminated the need for heavy metals, which have been found to affect the biofertility of the soil. Better yet, these revolutionary innovations could be adopted by farmers everywhere to grow all varieties of crops, thereby potentially transforming currently problematic farming practices into healthy, earth regenerating, sustainable practices. Vicentia’s groundbreaking solution also lowered production costs while maintaining or increasing yield and crop quality. Today, Vicentia’s regenerative agricultural advances are being trialed in seven countries.
