One rainy day at the University of Oregon, Erika Welsh and Keeley Tillotson were in their college apartment, scraping the bottom of yet another empty jar of peanut butter. As hungry college students and athletes, they ate a lot of peanut butter, and on this occasion, neither of them felt like biking to the store in the rain to buy more. So, they decided to try making their own! That day, Wild Friends was born. Less than a year later, Erika and Keeley left their college lives behind to pursue their peanut butter dreams. Since starting Wild Friends in 2011, they have launched dozens of new flavors of nut and seed butter that are sold in thousands of stores across the country. Through all these changes, one thing has stayed the same: Their passion for delicious products made with the healthiest wholesome ingredients they can find.
