Three years ago, we met while studying yoga and Ayurveda at the Kripalu Center in Stockbridge, MA. Soon after, we began making ghee for our friends, and everyone loved it! We decided to rent a small community kitchen in the Pioneer Valley to offer the ghee at a local farmer’s market. As the demand grew, Full Moon Ghee spread to local stores, restaurants, and the online marketplace. We are grateful for the opportunity to offer ghee to our community and the greater neighborhood in the Northeast. Through our service, we hope to strengthen our collective connection to this an ancient tradition rooted in healing and reverence.
