I’m on a gf diet? What can I eat?

All of our products are gluten-free. You can eat all of them! Hurrah!

I can’t have soy. Can I eat Schoolhouse products?

We do not use soy in any of our products. It is an allergen. We’ve got your back.

Why do you use dairy and eggs in many of your products?

Honestly, it is really tricky to make a quality consistent product that tastes good without one or both of them, and to keep it affordable for you.

What about butter?

We use butter in many of our products. Butter and greek yogurt are the only dairy products we use.

Do you use eggs?

We use local eggs in many of our products. It is hard to be soy free and egg free as most egg replacers have soy in them. We do have a few vegan products and are constantly working on new additions.

Are you peanut-free?

Yes, indeedy! All of our ingredients are produced in facilities or by producers that DO NOT handle peanuts.

Are you nut-free?

We do use almonds in facility for our granola. The almonds come directly from an almond grower and are exclusively packaged at the almond farm to ensure they are peanut-free. Proceed as you see fit.
