Who We Are
Back in 1995 Bill and Katie started making Badger Balm in the kitchen of their home with the support and help of their daughters Mia, Emily, and Rebecca. Now Bill is the CEO, Katie is the COO, Emily is the Director of Sales & Marketing, Rebecca is the Director of Product Development, and Mia is a Human Resources consultant. Emily has a little girl, Maya, who came to work as part of Badger's Babies at Work program. We've not yet figured out what her future role in the company will be, but for now she continues to inspire us every day to make the safest and healthiest products we can.

A team of over 40 friendly "Badgers" formulate, manufacture, and ship all of our products from our facility known as The Badger Mines. We work hard to maintain a healthy community-minded business with ethical and charitable social principles. Call and ask any employee. You'll hear about our free organic lunches every day, generous benefits package, green initiatives in every department, and our charitable giving practices.

If the Badger Company Could Speak, What Would it Say?
I have fun and I love to work! I love people and really enjoy the daily interactions. I am a machine too, and I'm at my best when I'm running smoothly, pouring hot, expertly-blended herbal formulas into Badger decorated tins, thousands per hour, all day long, and shipping them cheerfully, all over the world. I am filled with cheerful and industrious workers that do a great job. I make products that work. I try to do everything I do in a way that is aesthetic, healthful, creative, considerate and kind. I am trustworthy and know that other people recognize this. I am also chemical- and synthetic-free, so much so that I won't even allow chemicals in the process of extracting the raw natural ingredients. I have a philosophy that "close to the source" is the safe, wholesome, best-for-the-body, mind, spirit, planet course of action. Finally, I am always striving to be a good world citizen through the sustainable and responsible use of resources, and through support of organic and sustainable ecological practices.
I am Badger Balm, good stuff in tins.
