  • Betterment Spirits – farm to bottle distillery utilizing ingredients grown onsite or purchasing grains and honey from locally sourced farms. 
  • Pollinate – developing bee colonies which supports a healthy and sustainable ecosystem. restores native vegetation on impacted land and provides honey for local commercial uses.
  • Betterment Recycling – using mining, industrial and over-the-road tires from the local communities and turning them into rubber aggregate and ground cover, creating a complete local product life cycle.             
  • Betterment Harvest – further creating an agriculture hub in Appalachia producing organic products which can reach approximately 70 percent of the U.S. population within a one-day drive.
