To craft a healthy, rejuvenating broth as an accessible, daily ritual for the Hawaii community to sip and savor. We want to set the bar for other companies to follow by developing the local food system and fostering community around our soul-nourishing, zero-waste product sourced exclusively from organic produce and local animals that are treated humanely and loved. At the crossroads of nutritious and delicious, Bone To Be Wild supplies a space to honor your food and all it does to aid in your vitality.
“The thing that I love about bone broth is that with time and some care it is possible to craft a product so delicious and beneficial from something as ordinary as bones. It’s like alchemy. Channeling the forgotten wisdom of our ancestors about what our bodies need.”
— Bone To Be Wild Chef, Adam Watten
Bone To Be Wild offers the most medicinal bone broth available on Kauai. Our broth is simmered for 48 hours to ensure every last mineral and nutrient from the bones and connective tissue dissolves into the liquid. More than a pound of organic, humanely raised ingredients goes into every 16 ounce cup. We source our bones from Wailua Meat Co., which lovingly raises its grass-fed and finished cattle on spacious pastureland in the heart of beautiful Kauai. All of our herbs are local and organic.

Ok, but wait…
What is Bone Broth?
Bone broth is a silky, salubrious brew that offers the body a bounty of benefits. The difference between bone broth and regular broth is a longer cooking time, which allows the collagen and minerals in the bones and tissues to dissolve into the stock.
Calcium, magnesium, potassium and phosphorus from the bones support a healthy immune system and increase bone strength. Gelatin enhances your gut health, while glycine fends off fatigue. Not only does the collagen support and strengthen your joints, it also boosts the skin’s elasticity and helps diminish fine lines.
Bone broth is also soul-warming and delicious! It can be sipped from a cup or bowl — or it can form the base for a delicious soup or stew. Try substituting bone broth for water the next time you simmer a pot of your favorite grains. You can also freeze bone broth for up to a year.
