My 406Spices are official "Made in Montana" products. Located in Laurel, Montana, about 100 miles northeast of the awesome Yellowstone National Park, I am in the shadow of the majestic Beartooth Mountains, the highest mountain range in Montana. I take my business name from the fact that Montana proudly has but a single area code, "406", despite being the 4th largest state in the entire USA.

Our BIG sky, BIG mountains, BIG prairies, and BIG wildlife inspire me daily to provide you BIG flavor, produced from outstandingly fresh, pure peppers, spices and herbs. My seasonings are gluten-free, and I never add any fillers, coloring, preservatives or additives of any kind.

You can find me hard at work in a commercial kitchen (The Red Rooster Kitchen, to be exact) in Laurel, Montana. This is where I do all of my mixing, blending, packaging and testing of my seasonings. Feel free to drop by Monday, Tuesday or Wednesdays from 8:00 AM until 3:00 PM, where you can purchase your seasonings in person. But be prepared maybe to go home with some amazing baked goods produced by The Red Rooster Kitchen, as well!

 I want to take a moment to acknowledge my Heavenly Father, the awesome Creator of this magnificent landscape here in Montana (and the entire universe!), as my Lord, Sovereign God and Savior. It’s only because of Him that I have amazing joy and peace each and every day, despite all the ups, downs and nasty curve balls that life inevitably sends.

As one of the ways I like to express my thanks to Him, I am delighted to donate 10% of my profits from 406Spices to non-profit, domestic and international faith and humanitarian organizations, including Faith Chapel (my home church), World Vision, Samaritan's Purse, KLOVE Radio ("Positive and Encouraging"), Montana Rescue Mission,  Montana Food Bank Network, and occasional others. I have been very blessed to know that He is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to His power that is at work within us. (Ephesians 3:20).

So, please order and enjoy a few of my specially crafted spice blends. Let me know what you think! I am open to suggestions and welcome your heartfelt opinion.
