Our popcorn is popped directly by the heat of the sun. We use enormous mirrored reflectors to collect the sun's rays and focus them on our kettles. On a sunny day, each kettle saves as much electricity as an entire house would use!
We use non-gmo, and organic popcorn and season with all natural, gluten free, and vegan ingredients. There is no butter or cheese! BjornQorn's special flavor comes from nutritional yeast, which is a high protein and high B-vitamin seasoning that is popular in vegan cuisine, but is especially great on popcorn.
Bjorn is a Minnesota corn farmer's son and Jamie is an artist and inventor. The two met at Bard College, where Bjorn became known for his delicious family popcorn recipe and Jamie for his wild concepts and contraptions. During a historic session of catch in New York's central park, their collaboration was set into motion. Now on sunny days at a hudson valley farm you will find the two dodging clouds and managing mountains of pure golden popcorn popped by the oldest and dearest energy source we have, the sun!
