Meet Beautiful Kate
Before you get to know us, get to know the reason it all started – Kate Laver. Kate has helped develop the way we look at nutrition and what we put into our bodies. Nutrition changed Kate’s life for the better and we want to share that story with you.
Kate Laver was born with Cerebral Palsy. At four years of age, Kate was failing to “thrive,” as her doctors put it. She was faced with feeding tubes, hospitals and numerous pharmaceutical drugs.
The meal replacement beverage the doctors prescribed for her was laden with sugar and dairy for calorie enhancement. As a result, she had many complications, including bottle rot, sleep apnea and digestive problems.
We developed our own meal replacement shake in the Laver kitchen one night with the help of a dear friend. We left out the sugar and dairy products and replaced them with all-natural vegan ingredients, creating the world’s first dairy-free, gluten-free and soy-free ready to drink meal replacement shake!™ Kate’s condition improved greatly. She no longer needed breathing treatment for sleep apnea, her digestion problems were a thing of the past and her mouth was once again healthy.
As a result, Kate Farms was born. We saw the need to create great tasting, whole food drinks and snacks made from the heart. Where all-natural vegan products not only taste delicious, but are good for you.
We blend our products with superfoods with antioxidants (like açaí, mangosteen, black currants, raspberries, green tea extract) to fuel your body with the nutrition it needs. And, we left out all the stuff it doesn’t.
Our passion for healthy foods and belief in taking care of one another is the reason we are here. So enjoy! It’s created for you, Fresh from Kate Farms.
Richard Laver is Kate’s Father and Founder of Kate Farms. Seeing radical results in the improvement of his daughter’s health from our products inspired Richard to share the Kate Farms’ solution with the world. Richard brings his love of people, passion for Kate and enthusiasm about our products to the farm.
Michelle Laver is Kate’s Mother and Co-Founder of Kate Farms. She is driven by her love for her daughter and dedication to nutrition. Michelle brings stability and support to Kate Farms.
Kate Laver is the inspiration behind Kate Farms’ vision and products. Her life is inspiration to each and every one of us at Kate Farms. We have attempted to capture Kate’s pure heart and are ready to share Kate’s love and positivity with the nation.
Here at Kate Farms, we are thrilled to offer 100% vegan products that encourage and support a healthy vegan lifestyle. We have created our products with you in mind, to get your body the optimum nutrition to keep you energized – whether you’re vegan or not, you’re going to love the flavors we’ve created and the way our products make you feel.
What is a Vegan?
A vegan diet is based entirely on plant-foods. Yep folks – that means no meat, dairy or even eggs or cheese! Why, you might ask? We’re glad you asked and happy to tell you more…
Approximately 2.5% of Americans enjoy a vegan lifestyle, it may seem like a small number, but the plant-based diet is growing faster than ever. And who wouldn’t want to hop aboard the vegan train, complete with its countless proven health benefits in tow?
From reducing body odor, to preventing heart disease and many cancers, to ultimately adding years to your life, a plant-based diet does it all. While some benefits may be more useful than others, there is no question the list is extensive and impactful.
A vegan diet provides a plethora of nutrients to keep your body in tip-top shape. The plant-based diet is rich in antioxidants, fiber, folate,
magnesium, potassium, protein and vitamins C & E. Ah, now we’ve got your attention, just wait, there’s more!
Vegans experience natural weight loss, higher energy, healthier skin, hair and nails, decreased migraines, and the alleviation of allergy symptoms. Not too shabby… we know!
Take your vitamins, count your calories, get prescriptions for this or that. Or, a much easier tactic is to choose a plant-based diet to protect your body! Studies have revealed that vegans are 50% less likely to develop heart disease and additionally are 40% less likely to get cancer than meat eaters. Vegan diets also provide an increased protection against high cholesterol and blood pressure, type 2 diabetes, macular degeneration, cataracts, arthritis and osteoporosis. Let’s be honest, it doesn’t get much better than this!
Making it Easy to Be Healthy
We know it might seem like you’ve just guessed correctly on a game show and that mysterious voice has just stated, “Tell them what they’ve won…” but all of this accompanies a plant-based diet and can be easily attained. Kate Farms makes it easy for you. Start with one of our 100% vegan products, like a nutritious and delicious Komplete Cocoa Fudge Meal Replacement Shake. We are proud to offer delicious vegan options to vegans and meat-eaters alike, while enthusiastically providing the best nutrition possible to our customers and their families.
Kate Farms creates products with integrity out of love for a little girl, Kate. We’re not your typical company with a mission to line the pockets of our shareholders. Our mission is to create breakthrough vegan foods and drinks to ensure the best opportunity for optimum health.
We’ve been inspired by our once very sick little girl and how much good nutrition has improved her life and lifestyle. Our goal is to help people who are clinically “failing to thrive” get the necessary nutrition.
Nutrition is the first measurement of health, and healing cannot take place without it. We want to be a beacon of hope to people who want to improve their quality of life.
We also want to help normal people with busy lives get the nutrition they need to live life to the fullest. Our line of great tasting whole food, vegan meal replacement shakes and snacks are bursting with superfoods that are dairy-free, soy-free, gluten-free and full of nutrition for people on the go.
The values that we at Kate Farms use to operate on a daily basis are what’s truly important to us as an organization and as individuals. It’s Kate Farms’ culture. These are the reasons our company was founded.
“Kate Farms was created to help the world by sharing Kate's recipe for a better life through healthy nutrition.”
