Our Faithful Foods Story

Faithful Foods, Inc has been creating handmade artisan mixes, confections and foods for the South Carolina Midlands and the Southeastern US since 1995 when our gift basket business incorporated, branched out and became a food producer, too. Our mission is to make delicious foods that are “Handmade so you don’t have to- leaving you time to enjoy Life’s most important things.

Heidi Black first opened her gift basket business Bringing You Baskets in 1986. After enjoying much success and a few awards too, she recognized the true value of her business-the opportunity to raise two children while riding herd over a family run business- first from a Historic home (circa 1842) with a 72 foot long front porch and a gift shop at the end. Then the company added an inspected bakery built on the premises! The next move was to a free standing store at Lexington’s Historic Old Mill, then to a local shopping center and so on ‘til now! …Today our much expanded Faithful Foods crew spans into our 2nd generation. Our fantastic staff includes Holly, Aimee, Rachel, Addy, daughter in law/new mom extraordinaire, Collin (and our precious nearly one year old grandson who serves as our Director of Smiles, Giggles and Grins), daughter Faith who fills in when her teaching schedule permits, and our founder Heidi who still loves every minute even after 33 years. We still take great pride in hand crafting specialized artisan foods, confections, mixes, a few gift baskets and more with much joy and lots of TLC. Currently 150 plus recipes are on the menu and there’s more to come! Your suggestions are always welcome!

Gourmet Artisan Food Mixes Online or In Retail Stores

We sell most of our products online and retail stores throughout the Southeast. Our incredible farm fresh chicken and duck eggs from our own Rusty B Ranch are used in our wonderful freshly baked quiches, casseroles, soups and entrees, which also contain fresh tomatoes and vegetables, grown right here at the Rusty B during the summer season. Oftentimes the vegetables are picked just before we slice and bake ‘em into our delicious goodies. We also provide products to a number of local restaurants and stores including Crave Market, The Sandwich Depot in Columbia SC and lots more specialty stores, grocery stores, farm markets and mom and pop businesses throughout SC and Georgia. See all of our retailers on our growing LIST OF WHERE TO BUY.

We also offer wholesale, private label and fun(d)raiser opportunities. We'd love to talk to you about supplying your needs for these items from our specialized creations.
