What’s more bad ass than wanting to make the world a better place through the creation of healthy foods?  When Ian Sage Gaffney co-founded Emmy’s Organics in Ithaca, NY, that’s what he did.  All Emmy’s Organics’ guilt-free desserts are organic, vegan, gluten-free and non-GMO.   That’s pretty bad ass for one cookie.  When he is not making products that are good for our bodies and good for the earth, Ian can be seen riding his motorcycle, in the DJ booth, and even featured in Rolling Stone Magazine.  All this makes him a BAO Bad Ass Legend, but honestly you had us with the “guilt-free macaroon.”

‎When was the last time you heard anyone recommend farming as a career choice?  That is what the legendary Joel Salatin recommended at his Earth Day speech last week as he made his convincing case about how the average consumer can support a more sustainable, healthier, local food system in the United States.  Joel never backs down, always speaks his mind and proves his points through real life experience.  He is the ultimate BAO Bad Ass Legend.
