Jeff’s Lemonade was founded in 2015, but our story begins several years earlier, when Jeff was living and working on a lemon grove in Orange County, California. It was then he was introduced to a special kind of lemon – a naturally caffeinated tree lemon, like tea. He consumed early in the morning to provide energy and clarity while harvesting lemons in the grove. He loved the earthy flavor, smooth taste, and energy boost he got from the lemon.
Upon returning to Cambridge, he teamed up to write the business plan for Jeff’s Lemonade. He entered and won several business plan competitions. And while working full-time at Wistia, he began working with the lemon groves in Orange County to build a supply chain.
Together with these lemon groves, we envisioned a business that could share energizing, rich-tasting lemonade with the world – a business that would respect cultural traditions, support small farmers, and maintain the integrity of the lemon groves in Orange County.
