About The Midwest Salsa Company:
Brooks and Christine Vrooman ascribe their salsas' fresh flavors to the high-quality, locally-grown vegetables that go into each batch. Originally, the Vrooman's own vegetable garden supplied the ingredients for their salsas. One summer's overwhelmingly-large harvest got the Vroomans canning and experimenting with salsa recipes. That year they had so much salsa that they gave it away to friends, family, and neighbors. And everyone came back for more, - plus, they offered to pay the Vroomans for their salsas. Word about these fiery-hot salsas was out, and The Midwest Salsa Company began. The family business grew rapidly, and the Vroomans began contracting with farmers in the Mt. Horeb area to supply the vegetable produce for the salsas and bloody-mary mixes. Now, by joining, The Midwest Salsa Company's salsas and mixes will become known and sold to a larger, national market.
