Miranda Watson started Sundry Mornings after working on her thesis for a MFA in Photography. Her thesis was on farms and producers in Pennsylvania called, "Hundred Mile Table," and was about highlighting the maker and their product. She turned a lot of the produce she received from these farms into different spice blends and sauces for herself as a way to make them last longer. That is when she got the idea to start Sundry Mornings.
To Sundry Mornings it is not just about their products but the farms in which they get their ingredients from. Unlike many spice companies that buy their ingredients in bulk from a spice broker not knowing where they come from or how long they have been sitting on the shelf, Sundry Mornings gets the majority of their ingredients straight from the field, dry them in house and grind them in small batches. If they can't get it locally, they do their research and buy domestically and/or organically grown products.
