“There's a difference when you consume a product with the least amount of processing and real ingredients”.

  • Krista Cloud

Krista Cloud started her journey as a passionate supporter of local businesses and communities in Southwest Missouri. There, she volunteered at a farmers market, forming meaningful relationships with farmers and vendors. After moving to Northwest Arkansas with her husband, the pair launched Natural State Beverage, a company specializing in kombucha and natural sodas.

The inspiration to create their own business came from hosting a bike-packing event in Northwest Arkansas. The positive feedback they received on their homemade drinks led them to turn their passion into a business venture. As Krista settled into her new community, she became both a vendor and a shopper at Ozark Natural Foods (ONF). Her commitment to supporting local vendors traces back to her time in Missouri, and she's thankful for the supportive environment that ONF provides.

As Natural State Beverage continues to grow, Krista has high hopes. She aims to be the local go-to source for kombucha and sodas while maintaining strong community ties.
