Teeny Tiny Spice Company® creates and manufactures Certified Organic & Kosher spice and herb blends representing a diversity of world cuisines. Our spice blends provide a one step solution for full and balanced flavors that are easily incorporated into everyday cooking.
Our business opened in 2009 as Teeny Tiny Spice Company of Vermont®. For six years we made our products in a state inspected production facility within our home in the Champlain Valley of Vermont. In 2015, our family moved to the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia and re-established operations as Teeny Tiny Spice Company® with a significantly expanded facility in Harrisonburg, VA.
Teeny Tiny Spice Company® continues to be a family operation. We blend, grind and package all of our spices ourselves in small batches, assuring customers the freshest and most aromatic flavors that we can provide.
Thora, Ed, Nick & Maddy Pomicter
Thora is the boss and runs the daily operations. If you call or e-mail, you will probably be talking to her. Thora's organizational skills and perfectionist tendencies assure that everything is done right (and that our home and family run!).
Ed is responsible for the most messy aspect of the process, the grinding. When not covered with spices, fixing the grinder, repairing the house or working on his honey-do list, Ed is a full time anesthesiologist. His medical training helps when he has to stay up late into the night labeling spices when normal people are sleeping.
Nick is our right and left hand man! He helps with all aspects of production and fulfillment. When not working with us, he is a full time Rockingham County firefighter and a paramedic student. As if that isn't busy enough, Nick owns and runs our sister company, Shenandoah Valley Pastured Meats, where you can buy pasture raised and organically fed beef and pork, including sausages featuring Teeny Tiny Spice Blends, and have them shipped to your home.
Maddy is busy in college getting dual degrees in Mechanical Engineering as well as Neuroscience, and has had internships with NASA and Burton Snowboards. She remains involved in the business through managing our database of "ingredients in" and "products out." Knowing where everything goes is a major aspect of organic certification.
Alyssa (almost family!) is our social media maven and test kitchen queen and food photo expert. She lives in Austin, Texas and helps us create fun content for our newsletter and social media pages.
