Christopher Cates has never followed convention. After an abbreviated collegiate stint, he was recruited to New York City and cultivated a lifestyle for which he was grateful, but not fulfilled. Having led many lives in his short thirty-something years, he found his purpose doing hands-in-the-dirt labor on his father’s hemp farm in West Virginia. Since then, Chris has devoted his time to Spoonful and discovering how he can improve and support his community.
