"Tell us a bit about you and your family."
My name is Dina Caballero, I married my high school sweetheart. We just celebrated 21 years of marriage and 24 years together. We have 4 children ages 18 years to 2 years old.
I love fermenting things lol just ask my kids. I’m a big space nerd, and by nature an educator. I love helping and encouraging my community.
"How did the OG get started?"
While in college, circa 2007, I started learning about food policy and biotechnology like the genetic engineering of foods. I began to look at what I fed my family. I started buying and growing organic food as much as I could. I started studying herbals and was inspired by Joanna at Mama Jo’s Sunshine Herbals on Beachside.
In 2010, I started Organic Girly’s food blog online. It was a way to encourage my family and friends to eat better foods. Foods and herbals that nourish the body like organic food recipes, elderberry, fire cider, and water kefir.
Fast forward to 2019, it’s December, and my husband tells me the “I told ya so.” He’s been encouraging me to sell my products in the the community for years. I second guessed myself for years thinking I couldn’t do it. Well here we are OG has a storefront and a successful Farmer’s Market presence throughout Brevard County.
My entire family is woven into this business. It’s truly a family operated business. And your support has helped out food on the table for my family. The immense amount of support has been humbling.
"Tell us about some of your products!"
OG specializes in immune system support beverages. For example Elderberry, Elderberry has been used by natives for thousands of years as a natural antiviral remedy. It aids the body in fighting the flu or any respiratory virus. OG Elderberry and Elderbaby Syrup are pure, organic, and undiluted. We brew it traditionally with clean reverse osmosis water. We don’t add unnecessary ingredients to our syrup. FYI Elderberry is the Star of our Syrup. OG Elderberry syrup starts at $14 ElderBaby syrup is exclusively brewed for babies 6 months to 12 months in age. It contains all the benefits of our original Elderberry Syrup minus the local raw honey. We offer it in an 8oz Ball mason jar for $16. Fire Cider tonic is apple cider vinegar with the mother infused with roots, herbs, and veggies. It aids in a whole body support. It detoxifies the body and boosts the immune system. FYI we culture ACV with the mother from scratch. We offer Fire Cider at $24 for a bottle (24 servings)

"What is your vision for the OG? Do you have plans for future projects?"
I hope OG becomes a household name. That OG is known for its love of community, quality and potent products.
I love wine and coquito, so naturally making elderberry wine and coquito is exciting and being able to sell it in our storefront is the goal. Coming soon!
