Leslie Kielson began making Battenkill Brittle in Southern Vermont in the summer of 2010. She was always searching for an energy bar that tasted good but didn’t weigh you down... and when she couldn’t find any that fit the bill, she tried to make one herself. She and her partner took this experiment on a 7-day bicycle trip through northern Vermont and were amazed at how just a small amount of Brittle powered them up the many Vermont hills. Afterwards, friends and family were clamoring for more and, hence, Battenkill Brittle was born.
Leslie and her partner live in southern Vermont with their dog and two cats. Quite a change from life in New York City where she lived for 8 years and was a political organizer working to end the war in Iraq. But while Leslie loved city life for a while, she was very happy to get back to the country where she could grow her own food and now also produce good, healthy food for others.
