About Our Team

We're passionate about serving local farms other local food businesses.  


Sarah Highlen, Founder

Before I founded Grapevine in 2016, I spent 17 years in the marketing industry, building experience in just about every aspect of marketing. I'm passionate about local food and supporting "good food" businesses of all kinds. When I'm not marketing, I'm usually growing, buying, cooking, photographing, or eating food. I was a founding member of the NWI Food Council and served as its inaugural president. I'm also a member of  Slow Food and National Young Farmers Coalition. You can see more of my background on my LinkedIn profile.

Katy Horst, Account Manager

I love all things visual, photography and design being my go-to creative outlets. Coupled with my writing background, I naturally fell into the marketing field. Working with small independent businesses brings me a lot of joy because we can see the difference our efforts really make in the work and life of our clients. We are one small business helping another. What's not to love? Check out my LinkedIn profile for more information about my background.
