“As a retired high school biology teacher I have always found joy in learning about the processes through which energy is passed on in the world. In my personal life this has brought a deep passion for experiencing new foods, flavors, and cooking methods. Our neighbors and local farmers in Michigan strive to raise the best foods and as an avid outdoorsmen, we spend endless hours afield in various conditions to provide for our family for the winter. It's important to us to provide good, clean food and feed loved ones with it. This is why I am passionate about preparing and serving food in a way in which my friends and family can savor the taste. Most of my adult life my family and I have received seasonings for Christmas and birthday gifts. I have tried and purchased hundreds of different rubs and seasonings. When seasoning quality foods I have found that less is more. If one has worked hard for that venison roast, or foraged mushrooms having a seasoning that enhances and brings out the flavor is what we were searching for in a seasoning. When working with high-quality ingredients I have found myself applying these seasonings in smaller quantities to avoid overpowering the taste of good food. The art of seasoning to enhance rather than overpower led me to branch out and create my own seasonings with the goal of complementing good food. We developed Shifty’s Classic Seasoning, for those who enjoy the taste of good food.” -Shifty Shifflett, Founder
