Big Tree Farms Inc. (Ashland, Ore.), a supplier of raw and superfood products, has closed on $1.9 million of a $2.1 million Series B investment, according to an amended SEC filing in July. Big Tree Farms sells four main products sourced from Indonesian farmers and processed at facilities in Bali: coconut water drink mix, coconut palm sugar, raw cacao products, and raw cashews. The company sells online, via affiliates, and through a handful of natural retail stores. Big Tree Farms is run by co-CEOs and owners Frederick Schilling and Ben Ripple. Schilling founded the organic chocolate company Dagoba, which was acquired by Hershey's in 2006. He expects Big Tree Farms’ 2012 sales to double this year from $2.5 million in 2011, according to an article in Sustainable Business Oregon. The company recently constructed a production facility in Bali made entirely from bamboo.
