Hi! I am Anne Morgan. Welcome to The Secret Garden, my family-owned business creating products for busy, health-conscious families since 1985.
I started making mixes after I bought a small dehydrator for my garden's produce. I experimented and tweaked until I had recipes for soup packets that I could toss into a crockpot before I left on my schoolbus route in the morning. After a busy day on our small organic farm, my husband, three children and I could sit down to a hot, nutritious meal.
I gave mixes as holiday gifts a few years later and received rave reviews. Encouraged, I asked my husband to build a legal kitchen so I could develop a business and support our farm. That's how The Secret Garden started.
Over the years, I have not compromised my standards. I create--and we make--mixes that are easy to prepare, wholesome and delicious. My soup and entree mixes are vegetarian and complete. No need to shop for basics like onions and spices. Enhance by adding meat, or do as I do--serve cooked meat on the side. I love that cooks can "play" with my mixes.
My ingredient lists are simple and understandable. We never use MSG, aspartame or preservatives. I don't want my family--or yours--to eat them.
Please click on product categories that interest you. You'll see we've added jams and jellies, as well as select products from other manufacturers who share my passion for quality. It will be our pleasure to serve you.
Satisfied Secret Garden customers say:
"You have a lifetime customer with me! I love the ease and quality of your soups! Thank you ," Suzette
"I have bought or been given many soup mixes over the years. Many get dumped out or doctored to change it. Most taste like dehydrated soup, which is not good. Your Northwoods Hearty Chili is AWESOME. I have added tomatoes and topped with a dollop of sour cream/yogurt and a little cheese." Roberta T
"I received my order yesterday and was pleasantly surprised to see the shipping charge was a lot less-thank you very much for that. The products are great and I look forward to trying the beer cheese soup. My whole family loves the wild rice seasoning. I was glad I could order it online. Connie S.
